Fished for shark however only a few people caught them. I was hoping to catch one! It was cool to watch other catch the sharks even though I didn't get one.

We went on 2 cruises while in spi. The dolphin sunset and the fireworks. Both were excellent. The staff was friendly and inviting. Saw many dolphins on the sunset cruise and the firework show was great. Would recommend both to anybody.

They we're recommended to us, and we were completely impressed! Wonderful experience! The crew was so nice, knowledgeable, and professional! We saw a lot of dolphins, and learned a lot about the island. Definitely will book with them again!

This was not the least expensive tour, however, it was the best. The cheaper tours companies were crowded not a lot of room to move. Staff was friendly and the dolphins sightings were awesome.

I went out on an 8-hour fishing cruise as a spectator in hopes of seeing some pelagic species. I found a magnificent frigatebird. One of the deck hands was reasonably knowledgeable about birds as well as fish. It would have been nice if their website...More

We didn't do the sunset cruise sorry I can't give a good answer. But the boat is rather small probably 50'. There was about 20 people on our excursion and plenty of room to walk around, sit, be alone.
