Swimming with wild dolphins has been one of my goals for a number of years. I chose Dolphin Expeditions because I prefer to live on the ship (Indigo). It's large enough to be comfortable and small enough that there are only about 14 passengers (if it's full). I went last year for the first time and the weather did not... More

I have dreamed about making this trip and finally had the opportunity. I chose Dolphin Expeditions because I wanted to live on a boat and benefit from the expertise of Joan Ranquet as the facilitator. I could not have been happier. The boat was comfortable, with AC in the cabins, the food home cooked with great attention to personal needs,... More

Wow, just got back from 6 days on the Indigo with an amazing crew, Geoff, Alex and Emily, such an incredible experience, always felt safe and in capable hands. The experience and knowledge from the crew was fantastic, food on board was superb and made with love. The snorkelling experiences were fantastic, and the respect Geoff and his crew have... More

Living on a boat for five days with people you don't know was not an issue at all. Everyone got along great, friendships were made, good times were had. Becoming part of a dolphin pod even for a moment was well worth the challenges to getting there. Captain Geoff and his crew of merry makers are Sea Angels. They feed... More

We had been wanting to take this trip for some time and at last it has come true. Without wanting to repeat what other reviewers have said, I'll say the experience was rather amazing. One of the things I realized was that I needed to keep my innate impatience in check and, when I finally got to be in the... More

Wow, what a wonderful week I just had on Indigo with Dolphin Expeditions out of South Bimini....I can't recommend this wonderful trip and team highly enough - Alex, Emily, Storm and remarkable owner/captain Geoffrey Hanan! It's an amazing experience, great in different ways each of the 4 times I've been. Going back to Indigo is like coming home, to the... More

I would give 3.5 stars if possible, I don't think 3 is fair and I think 4 is too much. Pros: -The crew are very friendly and courteous. They go out of their way to find out what you need and get it for you. They're also pretty interesting. -They're very good at finding the dolphins. -The food is good... More

While most the other reviews clearly show that people have had great experiences with Dolphins, my experience of this trip was so bad, i think there are some things people should be aware of. The good stuff: the boat is comfortable (although some things like AC and sockets didn't work in some cabins) and the crew clearly know there stuff... More

Please read the review below "Look, dolphins on the left! Dolphins on the right" as it was written by a guest from the same week as this review was written... different feelings and thoughts on the same dolphin week. From what I understand this is the second time that this review has been posted. The first time it was posted,... More

Overview: Honestly, it's an experience you can't really explain. You pretty much have to be there. Just go! Value: Everything you need is included - accommodations, food, etc. once you board the Indigo. There is almost always a dinner night ashore at a great restaurant at the beach resort, so extra $ for that. I recommend you tip the crew... More

my husband and I along with my brother and his wife set out on the beautiful Indigo in June. from the start I had to admire the efficiency of the planning to maximize our expedition. Geoffrey was always planning something very cool for us to do as we trolled the dolphin grounds. The dolphin interactions were an unforgettable, sweet experience,... More
