In general it was good. The two young ladies leading the tour were friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the ride and the visit to Morris Island. My two complaints would be that the boat was very crowded and there were no refreshments. A bottled water would have been a nice touch.

Awesome trip! Our guide Chloe was exceptional!! Beautiful views. Saw many Dolphins. Saw many of the unique hunting habits and training the young Bottle nose Dolphins. Boat wasn't crowded. Got off boat at Morris Island Lighthouse. Highly recommend this boat tour. You will not be disappointed. Again special thanks to Chloe our tour guide. As well as the booking staff.
