Amazing boat, amazing crew! I'm quite sure this is the best pick of all the dolphin tours offered. You can sit indoors or out front or on the back, or upper deck. This is not a pontoon. If the dolphins are in the mood they will race under the front it was amazing to see. Highly highly recommend! Thank you frisky mermaid my family of 7 had an amazing time!

Wonderful experience!

Ally and Captain Steve were great. It was my 6 year old son’s first time on a boat and Ally was amazing with him. So many dolphins and a beautiful sunset.

Highly recommend this company

Rented a pontoon outboard 1:00 to 5:00 on a Saturday afternoon. We were initially booked for Friday. Just to begin the excellent customer service, Dee contacted us Thursday to let us know Friday was showing a wind advisory and offered to rebook us for the next day. The boat was clean and in fantastic condition. Ally gave us a great orientation and showed us some nice secluded beaches on our map which were about a 40 minute cruise from the marina. That path (west) put us on a couple pods of dolphins too. Great afternoon. Highly recommend this company.

Had a great time on the tour

Had a great time on the tour. Got to see the dolphins up close. Staff is very friendly, especially Ally. She let the children come closer to get a better look and educated them on dolphin facts. Cap Steve did a great job as well keeping passengers engaged. Definitely worth the money.

We truly enjoyed our dolphin tour!

My husband and I had our 6 and 12 year old with us. I’d say that the cruise is for all ages. Ally and I believe Riley were our guides and they were very personable and funny! My son was wearing a jaws shirt and we got to learn about the Jaws movie set. They even recommended local places to eat. It was all around a great time and we will be back❤️

We will always do this when at the beach.

This was our 3rd time to see the dolphins with Frisky Mermaid. They communicate with other boats to know where the dolphins are. Staff seems to love what do. We will always do this when at the beach.

AMAZING experience!

We had the best time!!! The staff was super friendly and had the passengers laughing & enjoying their time, the entire time! We saw several dolphins & the ride lasted the full two hours. 10/10 recommend! We saw another dolphin tour boat out in the water where we were & I am so glad I didn’t choose that one. There was hardly anywhere to sit on that boat and didn’t seem as entertaining. The Frisky Mermaid boat had a snack & beverage shop, a lower level, & upper level. Things to know: - you can bring a towel per the website; however, I don’t think anyone got wet. It was a smooth ride. - they sold water, cokes, sprite, etc., as well as chips, cookies, popcorn, candy, etc. and we bought 3 drinks & 2 snacks for $13. Super reasonable prices

Just do it!

Captain Riley and Captain Jen was the absolute best. We booked a sunset tour then booked the next morning before getting off the boat! They was absolutely fantastic and both was so funny. The atmosphere was just great. We will definitely be booking again along with other things they offer!! If you are thinking or considering this, DO IT!!

So funny and inviting!

Great experience! Jen and Riley were awesome! So funny and inviting! As soon as we boarded we were provided with life jackets for the kiddos and were informed about all safety precautions. They are very accommodating to make sure ALL ages are safely able to enjoy this trip. They informed us on cool historical places we passed by and interesting things we can do in the area. When we found dolphins, they made sure to circle back so everyone on the boat had a chance to see the dolphins from all different sides of the boat. They did great at making sure EVERYONE was comfortable, even had snacks and drinks available to purchase, and got to all have the same amazing experience! If y’all are in the area or have kids this is an awesome experience! Definitely will be participating again!

This kid gives the dolphin cruise a 10/10! It was an amazing experience with a pod of playful dolphins! Worth the time & money

Such a fun little trip!

We saw several dolphin pods. Our Captain, Steve, was very knowledgeable, kind and funny. I loved the small group size. We saw several tour boats with 20+, while this boat only had 6 passengers. It was a lovely excursion.
