My 82-year-old mother and I did the Cayo Costa shell & beach cruise. It was a great cruise. The commentary was informative and lighthearted. We saw quite a few dolphins on the way out to the shelling beaches. Once there, we were briefed by the...More

It was a last-minute decision to take the 90 minute sunset wildlife cruise. So glad we did! We saw a dolphin and lots of birds. The sunset at evening was beautiful. The captain was very informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

This was a nice excursion to see the dolphins. Beautiful views. It was extremely hot, but this isn't in their control. For the price, i expected a little more luxurious 'boat', but overall we enjoyed the experience.

We did the dolphin and wildlife cruise at 4pm. It was ok, I didn't realize the boat was a larger boat, so we were up pretty high. The narrator was great, he said they saw dolphins up ahead but we couldn't see anything. Yeah, ripples...More

I would go to their website for more info. The cruises we took were 90 minutes and 3 hours, not a full day. There may be other options we did not investigate.
