We went on the sea screamer and the dolphins were amazing, jumping and following the boat. The beach was white and Sandy and the sea was calm. Great day out.

We were on vacation with another couple and did not have a vehicle so we went to pickup spot and all went well. Thought 5 pickups might be too many but their choice. One couple was not intone for the return and we left a little late but all was a good trip

Great energy! The crew of the cruise had enough energy to keep it light. They told us exactly what to look for and expect. Even when the rain started!
