Captain Justin did a great job. Got to see some dolphins and a couple of manitee's although the water was a little cold for them. Had a great time and would definitely recommend this cruise.

How wonderful it is to hear you were able to see both dolphins and manatees on the cruise! January is a bit chilly for our manatee friends so when they stop by it's always a nice surprise! Thank you for the 5-star review!

Google that name and go to their website and follow the trail for booking a cruise. That will lead you to the price and calendar for what days the cruises are available. They vary.

Does go year round. Snacks and water good idea. Sunscreen also. It was a great trip. The dolphin cruise is also a good deal.
