Great Tour!

The."glass bottom" was a bit of a let down, but these guys delivered. We were able to watch several dolphins playing around for about an hour.

There are so many dolphin tours to choose from...how to know which one to go with? We happened to be walking around San Roc Cay, and came across Dolphins Down Under. Decided to book with them for 2 days later (a Saturday morning). We got a call Friday morning asking if we could come to one of their Friday tours,... More

The crew on the trip was amazing! They let my 2 little boys 'drive' the boat and we saw plenty of dolphins. The only reason I am giving 3 stars is because the boat is not truly glass bottom. The viewing areas were not functioning or not visible. Overall, I highly recommend their tour, but don't book it hoping for... More

We took this tour early morning on a rainy day. We had to wait for the rain to pass which wasn't a problem. Once we got out there we saw dolphins right away. The company does guarantee that you will see dolphins or they will take you out again. That did apply to us. We saw a lot of dolphins!!!... More

I want to say first that the Captain and crew were great. If I had to rank this tour based on them, I'd give it a top rating. However....the "glass bottom" aspect of this tour is a joke. The glass sections are tiny, but that doesn't really matter because the water was so dark you couldn't see anything, so it... More

Many dolphins in the gulf and these guys know where to find them. We had a dolphin surf and jump right behind our boat. Wonderful afternoon entertainment with a child.

We had a great time on the boat. We saw many Dolphins. We even got a few sneaks of babies. Well worth the money in my opinion. The crew was very knowledgable. It was a fun, safe trip!

We took the 6 p.m. tour and had a great time! The crew was very knowledgeable and entertaining and we saw A LOT of dolphins. The children (ages 5, 8, 9, and 12) and adults alike had a great time. Definitely worth the money!
