The boat only had only my girlfriend and I that afternoon. But our captain Rob still took us to the snorkel area which is far away after dolphin watching. The captain is a very nice guy, professional, helpful and hot-hearted. It is a wonderful experience to watch the dolphin

Your choice - morning or afternoon trip. We chose the afternoon. The boat holds up to 6 people. We had four people on our trip. Captain Rob was awesome! He was very knowledgeable about dolphins and about the waters of Key West. We were so lucky! I have great pictures of the many dolphins we saw. Rob kept positioning the... More

We had such an amazing time out on the water. It ended up just being the two of us and Rob (who was amazingly informative and a great host). The boat holds up to 6 passengers so while we were interested in the Dolphin Watch for its small capacity, we loved that it was basically a private trip. So lucky!... More

If you have never seen dolphins in the natural environment, this is a trip you don't want to miss. Captain Rob is very knowledgeable about dolphins and many other things on and under the sea. He shared information about dolphin sitings with other boats and steered the boat to where it would be more likely to see dolphins in the... More

We saw mom's with their babies and at one point we were completely surrounded by about 9 dolphins that decided to put on... More

What a great trip. My 5 year old son asked a million question which Boston Rob patiently answered. The dolphins were great but I really enjoyed snorkeling in the shallow sponge garden. I'm a beginner and I picked up some great tips and instruction. We saw a moray eel which was pretty cool! Rode back with a great sunset view... More

We were a little apprehensive about going on a 4 hour dolphin watch. The day was perfect- we had a great time and the hours flew by. Captain Boston Rob was very knowledgeable and we saw about 10 dolphins. Highly recommend!

We had an absolutely perfect day out on the water. Captain Rob did an excellent job of finding dolphins and teaching us about their behaviour. We were lucky to find them early on the cruise, and as Rob was sensitive not to be too intrusive, the dolphins let us watch them for quite a long time. Afterwards we did a... More

We had a wonderful afternoon with Captain Rob on our Dolphin Watch experience. We saw several dolphins and they put on quite a show for us. Some were quite near and we were even privileged to see some breach. Rob is knowledgeable about dolphins and at one point mentioned he was going to look something up about the unusual scarring...
