Took the Dolphin Nature Tour on January 25th and it was super! Captain JR and Andy are friendly and tour is very informative which we appreciated. We were lucky to see lots of dolphins, manatees and wildlife. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

We went on the 3 hour Eco Dolphin Tour today and had a ball! The pontoon boat was clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Capt. J. R. was entertaining and informative. Best of all, we saw lots of dolphins and other wildlife. Our bagged lunch on Picnic Island was delicious. Definitely worth the money!

Dear rcmozo, Thank you very much for your great review of our tour. Isn't it amazing how much wildlife you get to see within 3 hours? And to know, that 80% of the wildlife would fail in this estuary without our mangrove trees is almost unbelievable. Hopefully you had your camera with you and you were able to take some... More

Slightly delayed but I can promise you no one remembered after the tour was finished :-) JR and Andy did everything to make it up to us and they really did. An excellent combination of intersting facts, fantastic enviornment and everything mixed with a great sense of humor. A trip that would fit anyone!

Thank you captain J.R. and Andy. What a boat ride! Special thanks for the undivided attention with the kids on the boat and taking the time to let them "co pilot". Adorable. The knowledge and conversation on the boat ride is well worth the ride alone. Add on top of that the dolphin sitings! Beautiful. A trip well worth your... More

Capt. JR and first mate Andy are very personable and knowledgeable. From getting children on our tour involved in demonstrations, to letting them "captain" the boat, this tour is customer oriented all the way. We saw more dolphins than I can count and learned some interesting facts along the way. One even launched out of the water! A rare occasion.... More
