My best experience in Key West

Only dolphin watch trip I've ever done (so far) but I'm quite sure it can't get much better! Just amazing.

Four hours trip into Mexico gulf. The sea was beautiful and the captain is a very nice and knowledgeable person. Me and my wife had a lovely sun bath lying on the front of the boat on our way to watch dolphins. We also went on to some shallow water to do snorkel diving and observed a lot of interesting...

We thoroughly enjoyed our dolphin excursion with Rob. The weather was perfect, the view amazing (clear blue-green water) and there was plenty of dolphin action. We also had a great time snorkeling, which our daughter called "amazing." The water was beautiful and Rob was a very engaging guide. It was $300 for the three of us but worth it.

What an awesome trip! We saw a "party" of 11 dolphins including a mother and a baby. Captain Rob was very knowledgeable and gave us some cool facts. The day was gorgeous and the snorkeling was amazing. Lots of fish! Comfortable boat! This was definitely the highlight of our trip!

I was on the fence about booking this trip but it was wonderful! Our family (kids ages 6, 10, and 12) went out on the boat with Billy and had a blast. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were able to see over 15 dolphins including a baby. We sailed out among the dolphins for over an hour.... More

The tour was awesome. Captain Rob was knowledgeable, nice, and found us some really cool dolphins including a mother and baby. He taught newbies how to snorkel and pointed out interesting fish. Because the boat is small and holds only 6 guests, there is no fighting to see the dolphins or to get on or off the boat. The small... More

Billy was a very interesting and knowledgeable captain on our excursion! It was a relaxing sunny day with plenty of time to snorkel among the fish and sponges! Best if all, we did see a beautiful dolphin, who came so close to the boat we could have reached out and touched it! Thanks Billy for the great day!

Me and my wife spent 8 days touring key west, Dry Tortugus, Miami and Orlando. I have to say this boat tour was the one we loved the most. We say over 30 dolphines and it was a pleasure riding with Rob. Everybody on the boat loved the snorkeling in deeper water and said it was awesome. We even got... More

We went on the boat with Rob. We were the only ones that day so we had a private tour. Rob did everything possible to please us, it was also very nice talking and exchanging with him. We first found a single dolphin that we followed for a few minutes, Rob was very patient and explained to us many things... More

One of the best things we did in Key West! There is such awe in seeing these beautiful creatures. Rob, our host, told us so much about dolphins and made the cruise an enjoyable afternoon. He's even proficient with a knife and a pineapple!
