    No Dolphins

    Poor experience. Received a cancellation phone call as we were arriving to the harbor for our excursion. Rescheduled it for the next day. Arrived, and the kid at the stand didn't have us down for an outing. We waited 30 minutes for a teenager to show up. He didn't speak much, but he led the outing. He had us follow him around the bay for a while, informed us that there were no dolphins that day, and had us back at the harbor in 55 minutes flat. The purchased tour was for 90 minutes. Don't waste your money on this.
