They had buffet style appetizers... More

The dinner cruise was spectacular all the way around. The whale watch was a bust but the staff was great through the whole cruise and explained how to sign up for another chance to see the whales.

We had such a perfect view of a magnificent sunset. It was made even better with a sailboat beside the sun setting. Picture postcard perfect! Our sever Tyler was a... More

Dinner entertainment was excellent for all age groups. We also took the midday whale watch cruise where the crew guarantees you will see whales. Be sure... More

If you are interested in marine mammals or humpback whales its definitely a must. We saw humpback whales several times. You see their blow and their back, and at times their tale fluke. Rarely do they breach out of the water this time of year. But definitely a cool experience. If you are prone to getting seasick I would take... More
