Aks for Eddy, he is the best and takes time to ensure you have 100% interaction and swim with Dolphins, the 4 hour trip will be memorable and make sure you take underwater camera or bring someone else who can stay on the boat to take pics for you.

My mom, son and I went out on a well maintained boat. Captain Dennis was very personable, safety minded, entertaining. Extremely good at what he does - finding dolphins. Very knowledgable, able to answer many questions regarding dolphins. I bet we saw at least 30 dolphins, some were mating, some were jumping out of the water to play and some... More

My family had a great time with Captain Eddie and our wild dolphin experience. We learned a lot about the pods of dolphins that hang around St Andrews Bay and Capt Eddie has a great knack for putting you in the water at the right time and place. We had as much fun watching them from the boat deck as... More

This experience was so incredible!! We had a blast! We swam with the dolphins and then got the chance to find some amazing shells on a beautiful beach. The tour guide was super sweet, helpful and fun. Totally worth every penny!

We went on a dolphin trip with Captain Dennis and Captain Robin. Captain Dennis took the group of teenage girls. He went out of his way to make sure their experience was perfect. Not only did he make sure they were having a good time but he made sure to teach them his knowledge of the ocean. Captain Robin had... More

My 18 yr. old daughter and her friend said the Captain was very knowledgeable about the dolphins. He told the girls when to slide off the boat and swim and the dolphins swam right by them. They saw about 25 dolphins. They had a great time!

My daughter and I went on the four hour dolphin trip. We were joined by another family. The guide/ captain was awesome. She was so much fun and so knowledgeable. It was the highlight of our trip! We saw lots of dolphins too! I highly recommend this company as do so many other reviewers.
