These guys take their job seriously and have a great time doing it! Their knowledge about the beautiful homes we passed was interesting, too. They are full of knowledge and share it.

It had rained all day and the possibility of seeing a sunset seems very slim. As the evening went on, it cleared up and what a beautiful sunset we saw. We also had dolphins come right up to the boat and perform for us. The captain gave us a lot of information about dolphins. He remembered each child's name and... More

Beautiful canopied boat with tables and benches. Capt. JR. learned every child's name and invited them by name to participate in discussions and to "steer" the boat. The Captain's Mate took pictures w our own cameras which was great. We saw many dolphins and we learned a lot about dolphins. My Granddaughter told me it was her favorite activity that... More

Dear Whatadoc, Thank you very much for your great review of your tour. We always love to watch Dolphin teaching lessons. Dolphin calves stay with their mom for 3 to 6 years. So plenty of time to learn how to catch their prey. :) Thank you again for your nice review. Your Banana Bay Tour Company Team More

We saw many different birds, lots of Dolphins, and a very tasty and filling sack lunch was included. I would highly recommend this tour as a very worthwhile way to spend 3 hours on the water.

What an awesome experience. The tour guide Judy (assistant to the Captain) and the Captain had so many tips on the wildlife and the environment. We were so fortunate to see many dolphin and other wildlife. The trip was peaceful - relaxing and very educational.
