Terrific Dolphin Tour

Our tour was interrupted by a quick storm but the captain was willing to take us back out once it was past and took us out for the entire 1.5hours. Knew all the good places to check for dolphins, manatees, and turtles. And gave us a historical tour and even some celebrity homes! Definitely recommend this crew!!!!

Excellent tour

Joey was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and helpful. We saw dolphins, a spotted eagle ray, a terrapin, and many other fish and birds. He even found some sharks’ teeth for the kids.

Dolphin tour

Awesome experience with captain Chris! We saw dolphins right off the bat, and when we weren’t seeing dolphins, we were learning about everything around us. He was very knowledgeable and kept the tour fun and interesting. Highly recommended!

Magical Morning

We went on a dolphin tour with Captain Ben and had the BEST time! We saw many dolphins and even had a fun experience with one! Ben was very knowledgeable about the area and very fun to talk with. Ben, your suggestion for good local seafood was a great one! Thank you for a magical morning that our boys will never forget!

6 Stars

If they would allow us to give 6 starts I'd do it. Ben truly has such a great knowledge of the islands and its history. Were able to see numerous pods of dolphins and also got within inches of a big pod of manatees. Such a great way to see this area!

Sunset/Dolphin Tour

We had a wonderful time on the boat with Captain Joey at the the helm! We were a group of 9 ranging from 2 - 69 years old. We enjoyed seeing the dolphins and learning about their lives. We were lucky to catch an amazingly beautiful sunset!! Thank you for a GREAT evening!

Sunset tour

We saw a lot of dolphins and even a few baby dolphins. They knew where to go to keep everyone entertained, including our four young kids. The guide was super friendly and everyone had a great time. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to see dolphins.

Sunset dolphin tour

The sunset tour was fantastic. Our captain Jim Sweet was very knowledgable about the dolphins and the entire area. The sunset will be one I remember for a long time...what a fantastic way to end our vacation! By the way his selection of music was awesome.

Such an awesome time! Best $35 I have spent and the captain was such a fun guy! Time was not an issue and we saw such action from the dolphins. BEN had such knowledge and history of the Island. He let us know the great local must go to restaurants and locations. Even let us take cover until the storm had passed!
