I needed to find a boat service that would locate dolphins and allow me to put my late wife's ashes "in warm water with dolphins" which was her request. Captain Sheri took 5 of us out for almost 6 hours. Her knowledge of the waters off Key West is really complete. Some of us snorkeled, with all the gear being... More

Captain Sheri is not only knowledgeable, professional, & friendly, but she really knows the waters of the FL Keys inside & out. My brother was in visiting me in Key West from the Pacific NW, so we booked with Wild About Dolphins for an afternoon trip. Wow, what a wonderfully magical experience. I've seen dolphins before, but Capt. Sheri knows... More

During our trip to Key West we had the opportunity to go out with Captain Sheri and Maya twice. Both trips were remarkable. We saw dolphins both time and the to be able to see them in their natural setting, playing, splashing, jumping and definitely interacting with us from the boat was amazing.

This is a must do activity while you are in Key West. Capt. Sheri is a well experienced, and knowledgable about dolphins. It is a pet friendly ride, so we took our two yorkies with us, and they had a blast! Capt. Sheri provides equipment for snorkeling, fresh towels and food.

We have been out with Capt. Shari several times when we have visited Key West. She never fails to deliver a wonderful experience. The Amazing Grace is a beautiful boat, and the fact that it is small and only takes a few guests at a time is a plus. Actually, we have always been out alone except for once. We... More
