It was a really nice ride, the time went by really fast. We didn’t get to see any dolphins but got to feed some fish. There were also some really amazing views from the boat! The captain and his wife were really nice.

Highly recommend! It was well worth the money! The guys on the boat gave us the history of the island, mentioned many great places to eat and actually cared about their job. It wasn’t just another tour for them. The day we went on the boat we was able to see many fish, dolphins and turtles! However it’s not their fault if there are no dolphins the time of your tour. They will drive the boat around and give it their best shot. They insisted on taking peoples pictures allowed for family’s and couples to have group photos together.
