Our family of six enjoyed the Dolphin tour! We saw several dolphins close to our boat. There were snacks and drinks on board for purchase. There was also a kids learning/hands on experience by a young lady with a marine biology degree.

$15 for children 12(?) and under $29 for adults and I think infants are $1 or free. It is well worth the cost.
