Captain Lou Austin was amazing. Tried several spots until we found the right one. Captain was kind and kept conversations with us. It was a beautiful day and he even took a route where he sees many dolphins often and sure enough there were. He stopped the boat so we could watch them and take photos. Highly recommend Captain Lou Austin!!!
