On the spur of the moment, we decided to go on a dolphin cruise. Staff were friendly. Had to pay $5 cash to enter the resort area where we would park. The food establishments near the dock were crazy expensive but since we had been...More

This shelling cruse was well worth the money spent. We saw dolphins and had a nice hike on an island. It was first class and very informative.

The gentleman that did all the speaking was excellent! Very kind and knowledgable. It felt very competitive though, it was a race to get to the side of the boat where the dolphins were. In the past we have been on smaller boats where you...More

The staff is always very friendly and genuinely happy to see you. Nice boat ride with a little history thrown in to help pass time until you reach the island you chose.They offer beverages and have bathroom facilities on the boat. Prices are very reasonable.

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.
