This tour was great! The guides were knowledgeable and as excited about the wildlife as we were. We saw many dolphins and some whales, turtles, a ray, and tons of fish. I was disappointed that, although I had booked the tour to get in the water with the dolphins, when my confirmation emails came, that law has been changed and we cannot do that. I want to respect the safety of the animals but felt misled. It should be stated clearly in the booking description that this is no longer allowed instead of after the booking.

Absolutely amazing morning with the dolphins! 10/10 recommend! Would definitely do it again. We saw hundreds of dolphins & got to swim with them twice before snorkeling with a sea turtle. Jenna & Alyssa were great guides/hosts!

Our guides were so welcoming and really engaged with the tour. They were so excited about the animals we saw and really passionate about the marine wildlife. It was a fantastic tour and I will absolutely do it again!

Our captain and marine biologist were very friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. We saw a baby humpback whale! It was the highlight of our vaction.

All the staffs were so passionate!!! Loved it!!! Great experience! And Jeremy is the best!!
