Climb aboard the Sea Screamer and get ready to jet off on the greatest dolphin cruise around. Be prepared to get wet as the Sea Screamer cruises by several uninhabited islands on the journey to find dolphins. Don’t forget your camera—you’ll want it when you sail by the coastline as you return to shore. Keep an eye out for playful dolphins throughout the cruise.

"Screamer was great!"
July 2021
We had a great time! Saw a lot of dolphins. Be ready to get wet! Check in was a little confusing. You need to go to the restaurant and get your boarding passes. That was the only tricky part. I loved the pictures we could purchase at the end. Definitely a great time!
