Amazing Tour

Highly recommend! Spotted lots of dolphins, toured Egmont Key, and stopped at a great sandbar. Captain Ben was very knowledgeable about Anna Maria Island as well as the history of Egmont Key. We had a such a great time! Will do again.

So Worth It

Our family went on a dolphin cruise and it FAR exceeded my expectations. Captain Tristan was so entertaining and knowledgeable. We saw so many dolphins and learned things about them I had no idea! Was the highlight of our week!

Vacation Highlight

Our group took a private dolphin tour over Labor Day Weekend. Captain Chad located dolphins in several areas, and drove at the perfect speed to entice them to play in the boat's wake! We really couldn't have asked for more. Thanks!

Exceptional Tour

Chad was a wonderful Captain and guide! We've been on dolphin cruises before, but this was an exceptional trip. We saw a mother and baby dolphin play in our wake!! So awesome. We also saw a manatee! Just wonderful. We loved it!

Great Boat Rental

We've rented boats before, but this by far was the most professional and pleasant experience we've had. The pontoon was in impeccable condition! They have great reviews for good reason. Can't say enough good things about these guys!

A Must-Do

Did a private dolphin tour and it was one of the best experiences we've ever had! We saw birds, stingrays, manatees, and many dolphins. Being splashed by dolphins performing tricks is something we'll never forget. Highly recommend!

Great for Groups

Captain Ben was fantastic! We came for my sister’s bachelorette party and it was the perfect fun excursion. Right away we saw dolphins and toured the whole island. Finished our day at the sandbar. Five-star service. What a fun day!
