The captain found a pod of about 400 dolphins and we followed them for the majority of the trip. It was a thrilling sight. He was informative and the team was super helpful. Would highly recommend.

It was a beautiful late November day on the water! Then the Captain and crew spotted a super pod of dolphins on our way back, they even gave us extra time with them. There were dolphins in every direction, hundreds upon hundreds of them all around the boat, and in the distance.
