I have been to several dolphin experiences, but seeing dolphins in the wild was a real treat. Captain Adam made all three generations feel welcome and since the six of us were the only ones on the boat, he catered to our desire to just watch the dolphins and skip the snorkeling. Adam was very knowledgable but didn't talk incessantly... More

The Key West Visitor Center showed us pictures and videos of the dolphins and made us change our mind about going swimming with the dolphins so we changed the itinerary hoping that we would see the dolphins in their natural habitat as they promised but we had no luck and after a looooong search with no luck they took us...

Took our extended family of 5 out to see the dolphins. Captain Kenny was having zero luck finding dolphins, but then went out to the "playground" after getting intel from another boat. We found a small pod and then stayed with them for quite a while waiting for the sister boat to come over. He was very safe, but did... More

We booked a private dolphin watching tour for five adults and one child. Captain Kenny was professional, easy going, and very informative. Safety was his upmost concern which we appreciated. Would recommend tour to anyone!

A great experience! We hired the boat as a private trip and it worked perfectly. Captain Richard took the tour and not only is he a great tour guide but funny too. He genuinely cared that we had the best experience possible. I would do it again tomorrow!

Richard was an awesome tour guide and unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins on this day but great experience overall. The snorkeling was an added bonus to it.

Got to see a lot of dolphin, and the crew was very nice! Snorkeling was okay, but it's not the main attraction.

Dolphin sighting was great, snorkeling was terrible. We booked this company because they are small boat at we thought would give us the most for our money. The dolphin sightings were wonderful. We picked up the trail of a family unit right out of the dock area. They were displaying all sorts of fun behaviors, jumping, breaching, swimming at the... More

We had a great day with Trish on our Dolphin watch and snorkel half day. We booked the evening tour which lets you enjoy the sunset as well. However, the snorkeling might be less fresh dring the during. Trish was a great guide and we enjoyed her stories and knowledge of the area. The snacks and water provided after the... More
