  • Very well organized, even if weather was not as cooperative, too cool for actual swimming. Staff was very pleasant and tour guide was informative at the fort. We did see the dolphins and manta rays too. Water appears much cleaner there than in Biloxi.
  • The excursion is fun and entertaining. Dolphins galore!! The boardwalk is a bit long and hot. And make sure you have shoes for the beach or you will be sorry. Chair rental was quick and convenient. Friendly staff and reasonable prices and day of availibility.
