Day trip to Egmont Key, off St. Petersburg, Florida. Watch dolphins jump and play in the surf behind our mono-hull boat. They jump, twist, & spin so close you can almost touch them! Our boat stays with you the entire 2 1/2 hour stay on the island. Explore this tropical island with its abundant wildlife and ruins of a Spanish-American War fort. Snorkel gear is provided for those wishing to snorkel the sunken ruins. Reservations recommended by calling.

Captain Frank, 1st and 2nd Mates Eric and John were amazing. Not only did they make the trip fun but they also made me feel safe the whole ride. We saw dolphins as promised and had a wonderful time enjoying the island. I will be recommending this cruise adventure to all my friends and family.

Be prepared for the best dolphin show that any dolphin watching cruise will ever offer! We went on one of these cruises last year with a different company out of Clearwater it didn't even come close to comparing to these guys! First of all the crew and captains are so nice and friendly and do everything they can to make... More

We enjoyed our dolphin snorkeling cruise! Captain Dave was incredibly personable and wanted to ensure that both we and our kids (3 and 6) were comfortable. The cruise delivered what it promised -- dolphins, a little snorkeling, and some time on Egmont Key. If you're looking for additional time on Egmont Key, though, this is not the trip for you....

Just went on this cruise on 03/30/15 it absolutely lived up to its billing. We were greatly entertained by numerous dolphins that swam in the boats wake both going out to the island and on the return trip in. The crew was friendly, helpful and kind. The captains, Dave and I'm sorry I forgot the others name, were both knowledgeable... More

This place was horrible. They didn't allow us to snorkel, but didn't tell us that until we set sail & had no opportunity to back out. They changed the location last minute, and yet again they declined to share that info with us until we were all aboard the boat. The boats were small and uncomfortable as well. As compensation...

Cheryl F, Manager at Dolphin Snorkeling Cruise, responded to this review

Everyone was told before boarding, that due to increasing winds we will be going to alternate destination. You had an opportunity to cancel, which a few groups did. You were sitting right next to a group that decided not to go. You were told that the snorkeling would not be good at either island because of weather. Your "tour guide"... More
