We had a great time on the eco tour. My 4 year old loved touching the sea creatures that were brought on board. Seeing the dolphins was another exciting moment for him. A great inexpensive way to enjoy the bay from a different view.

My son and I took the eco tour. It was a nice smooth ride in the bay. A great deal at $10 per person to see dolphins and sea life.

We bought our tickets about 1 hour before departure. Saw many Dolphins. It was sunny and windy so wore hat with strap. Glad. Think 1 1/2 hours was plenty of time. Seats were not comfortable but you spend most of your time standing.
