Great travel trip. A little hard to find, but just arrive 5 minutes early. I love that it’s the oldest family-owned dolphin cruise. The captain was very knowledgeable about the lands. The only issue is wish was fixed, update your life jackets. The orange over-the-head have to be older than I am. I would’ve felt better had the life jackets of been updated to the newer snap jackets. However, captain Patrick & his grandson were extremely knowledgeable. The grandson worked with my 2 kids and let them interact with multiple species of marine life. Highly recommend.
