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.

It was fun! I would have given a perfect rating but our snorkeling time was cut short (uninvited visitors lurking). Absolutely not the fault of the crew, just bad luck! Crew was... read more

I talked to the captain several times when we were on our way to confirm our reservation. We had a 930 reservation. They gave our seats to walk-ups and left port 15 minutes early.. 3 crying kids sitting in the parking lot watching the boat pull off early... I called them and they were rude and really didn't care that... More

I had a 930 am reservation for 3 adults and 3 small children. The captain and I talked several times to confirm our reservation. Despite all the texts and calls, we got there and they had given our spot to walk ups and left port 15 minutes early. 3 crying kids and 1 crying mom later, I was lucky I... More

It was fun! I would have given a perfect rating but our snorkeling time was cut short (uninvited visitors lurking). Absolutely not the fault of the crew, just bad luck! Crew was great, concerned and calm. Dolphins jumped in our wake both to and from the island. Great shelling. We've snorkeled with this company a few times and will continue... More

It was a great afternoon at Key Largo ending snorkeling. My teen kids had a blast 😊 The captain was very serious explaining the need for the good care of the reef, which I loved. Very attentive to all the passengers while in the water, caring for the young kids too. Highly recommended this Dolphin Snorkeling cruise!

Had a great 3rd outing on the Dolphin Racer thanks to the captain and crew. We were able to to get several videos of dolphins jumping behind our boat. We had up to 4 at a time including two small young dolphins. Excellent day ttrip for all ages !!

I called to schedule an boat ride for a friend and myself. The person answering the phone cursed at me when I mentioned a competitor. He dropped the F bomb and the S word on me. Safe to say I did not book with them

This is one of the best experiences that we've had in Florida. Living near Orlando, we have lots of northern visitors and we will definitely take all of our guests on this boat tour. Captain and crew were fun, patient (one of our explorers decided to get lost on the island) and just easy going. Can't wait to go again!!!

My 7 year old granddaughter said, "This is the best day of my LIFE!" The dolphins put on a great show for her and the friendly crew made sure all of the kids got the best view as they jumped and leaped in the wake of the boat. Egmont Key was also very interesting and a tortoise showed up for... More
