Captain Zodiac Beat the Crowd Raft Expedition was very fun!
Nicole V
, Apr 2019
The Captain Zodiac Beat the Crowd Raft Expedition was great fun! The tour allows only a certain number of people (15-20?; a small number), so it's very personalized. The boat ride was fun, as it is smaller and allows the boat to go into smaller places along the coast. The ride can be bumpy, so if you don't like fast rides in boats, this would not be for you. We saw 3 different pods of dolphins and 1 pod of whales! One of the dolphin pods was in the bay while we were snorkeling. It was very neat! I recommend this tour and would love to do it again!

Wow! This was an awesome way to start 2018...great tour! Exciting and informational! We saw plenty of whales and dolphins a few miles out from the coast, and beautiful fish while snorkeling. And the tasty lunch sandwiches were perfect. Beat the Crowd time was perfect since the bay was not overcrowded.
