Parking was hard to come by if you aren’t staying in the area, but the tour was amazing! Lots of insight and engagement from the crew and learned a lot of neat facts. There’s no need for a jacket unless it’s cool out and pictures taken prior to boarding will cost about $50 if you want to keep the physical/digital copies.

Ernie was friendly and informative about the subject. We had such a good tour because of his attentive and professional service. We would definitely recommend him and the company.

It was great!! enjoyed the atmosphere and saw lots of cool animals!! We saw turtles, dolphins, and lots of fishes. The view made it a 1,000 times better!! Definitely recommend!

the driver of the boat kind of looks like Revolver Ocelot from the series Metal Gear Solid. You should get that guy to cosplay as the character for Halloween

Absolutely amazing! Crew did a great job. Lots of sharks to see.
