My 5 year old granddaughter got to see dolphins playing in the water. She was thrilled. Our tour guide, Sam was very knowledgeable and she answered our questions as well as gave us tons of good information. Our bartender, Troy, was very nice and did a great job. Our captain, Brian, was a great navigator and took us exactly where all the dolphins were playing.
