We had the perfect morning with Captain Sherri and Puppydog Maya. We knew we'd love seeing dolphins, but we had no idea how much we would learn about them, and what a joy it would be to be so close to them playing in the waves. Sherri was awesome, encouraging the kids (11, 10, 8, 8) to make dolphin noises... More

We (myself, my wife and my 15 and 13 year old kids) had a great week in Key West, but the highlight of the trip was the 4 hours we spent with Sherri and her dog Maya. Sherri's professionalism and comprehensive knowledge of marine wildlife is impressive, but it's her passion and commitment to protecting and preserving wild dolphins that... More

We had a wonderful morning aboard the Amazing Grace with Captain Sheri and Maya, the dolphin dog. It was an experience we will never forget. Captain Sheri was knowledgeable and a great host during our 4 hour trip and we would recommend it to anyone who is visiting the keys. Well worth the money and great value!!

Captain Sheri knows dolphins, their behavior, their habitat and the impact of her industry on the dolphin population. That's why she helped shape the behavior of her peers with a code of conduct and participates in cross talk between operators that reflects care for these beautiful animals. Sheri and Mya (the dolphin dog) gave us a fun, educational afternoon of... More

We spotted a lot of dolphins accompagnied with some background music and got all the information we wanted about these beautiful sea creatures from our friendly Captain. After we had a light lunch...

The trip along with Captain Sherry was absolutely amazing! She knows the area extremely well and definitely caters to each individual trip. I would recommend this trip over any crowded boat tour. The experience is personal, intimate, and definitely worth remembering. Her dog Maya was just an added bonus to the experience. She guided us directly to the dolphin pods... More

Family of 4 (2 adults, 2 tween girls) enjoyed Captain Sheri and Maya during the Wild About Dolphins excursion over July 4. Sheri is an absolute gem. She has terrific customer service skills, very knowledgeable/educated, fun/light-hearted, easy to talk to, respectful of the environment and her fellow boaters. She gave other captains time to visit with dolphin pods before we... More

My wife and I and our 23 year old son had a great day with Captain Sheri. The key benefit of this trip is it is small there was just us three and two other people on the boat. Captain Sheri was an excellent guide and we saw dolphins on the way out and on the way back. The snorkeling... More

As a prior resident of Key West several friends met after 20 years. Capt Sherri's dolphin watching trip was a highlight of the trip. She customized the outing to meet out requests and even got a bonus sea turtle "show". Can't wait to go back and do this again!!!
