More dolphins then I had ever imagined. The guides knew what they were doing and were polite enough to ask whether they could fish while heading out to the spot.
Our Crew was wonderful, the experience truly once in a lifetime and it's an experience we will always remember. Recommend highly and without hesitation!!!
We spent a fabulous morning searching for the dolphins and getting in the water with them. We were fortunate that there were only 4 others on the boat with us. The crew was outstanding and made sure...more
