The tour was absolutely exceptional, and not to mention captain Andrew and captain Paul were totally on top of their game and we're absolutely fabulous!!I would recommend to ANYONE, with or without children. Cheaper than a different dolphin tour I took and I saw way more dolphins and I learned a lot more because captain Andrew is a marine biologist!... More

We had a great time with Captain Bob and Captain Mark and I would highly recommend this to anyone with small children. We took our 3 kids (11, 9 and 5) and they all had a great time. There is a short boat ride over to a small private island and during the ride, Captain Mark provided narration along the... More

Captain Bob and Mark were great! We've done several trips with Adventures in Paradise over the years and always been thrilled. This trip was especially great, as Mark identified whatever random creature we found in our nets in the seagrass. Hogchoker? Yep. Tonguefish? Yes. Definitely a great family trip on the water.

We took the sunset cruise on Sat., April 11,2015. It was a full boat with every kind of tourist possible from the party girls celebrating a birthday, to the Europeans couple with 2 young children in tow, to the nice Midwestern retirered couples. Our crew was 2 gentlemen in their 70s who clearly love their jobs. They were knowledgeable about... More

Captain Bob & Ashley helped to make this a wonderful experience not only for my 6 year old granddaughter, but for my husband, daughter in-law & myself. The weather also cooperated which made for a great day to be on the water. I wished we had more time to spend looking for sea life on Picnic Island. Thanks again for... More

Did the morning dolphin cruise on the morning of 4/8/15. The boat is really nice, and also the crew. But, this ride wastes time in going to waters where you have to go slow and do not see dolphins. The ride should go immediately under the causeway out by Light House Beach. I have taken several rides for dolphin watching,... More

We took the Sea Life Encounters excursion yesterday with 4 adults and 1 teenager and we had a great adventure!! Mark and Captain Bob guided us into the gulf and we arrived at a little island where everyone had a great time finding sea life with the nets that were provided. Our marine biologist guide (Mark) then identified the sea... More

On Easter Sunday, my husband, 16 year old son and mother in law went on the sunset cruise with Captain Paul and Melinda. I suggest making a reservation. Our boat was full. It is a 90 minute cruise that takes off at 7 p.m. or 40 minutes before sunset. It runs every day. The cost is $29 for adults and... More

Great Captain and Marine Biologist. BEAUTIFUL sunset cruise with MANY dolphins coming right up to the boat. Only complaint is that the hard bench seats are a little uncomfortable. Recommend bringing a cushion or ask for a life preserver to sit on.
