Absolutely perfect! Captain Justin was knowledgable, skilled and funny! Boat was comfortable and was not crowded. The preserve was beautiful. And boy, did we see dolphins! Initially they were off in the distance and we thought we might be disappointed, Justin was patient and persistent and they came out to play and provide quite a show. It was so fun! Add a fascinating "bird island," gorgeous double rainbow and a beautiful sunset--it was so lovely! Very relaxing as well.

This was one of the best things my friends and I did on our weel vacation! We went out on the dolphin tour and saw some very playful dolphins :) We had a great time, once we docked we chose to register for the Sunset Cruise! Which once again we saw dolphins and a few manatees!! Capitan Justin did a wonderful job and we definitely would recommend family, friends or any one to do ANY tour with them!!! Please check them out! They did a wonderful job!
Thanks again Captian Justin!!!

We wanted to take the morning dolphin cruise but it was cancelled. They re-booked us onto the sunset cruise, which my husband was unhappy with. However, it turned out great. Captain Justin was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw everything. We observed a group of four dolphins for a long time, and had a great view of the sunset.

What a great time. The weather was perfect. Our captain was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and all of the wildlife in the area. He took his time so we could see different birds. We did get to see several playful dolphins and the view of the sunset was breath taking. I live on Florida's east coast so I get to see the sunrise daily but there is something special about seeing it set. I highly recommend this company it is a great value and all of the staff are great. Remember if you are making same day do it before 5pm thye do not accept reservations after 5.

Highly recommended for everyone, especially families with children, if you are in the area. The tour is absolutely worth it. Captain Justin was very knowledgeable and fun, and all the kids got to be "captain" for a few minutes each, which they adored.
