Relaxing on the water. My expectation were too high for dolphin sightings. Thought they would have been feed so they could be flocking and playing.

When making the reservations I ask how far from my hotel was the cruise and the person who booked the cruise stated it was 6 minutes from the hotel and I would receive an email with the reservation request in an hour. After a couple hours I haven’t received an email I called back to get the confirmation. Than I was told I would get an email which I did receive and the final email. But the distance from the hotel to the cruise was about 17 miles. I didn’t make the cruise and I requested a full refund due to the error was not on my end. I was told someone pull speak with an supervisor and get back to me.
