Many dolphin watching tours available; went with Dolphin Watch and thrilled we did. We booked the afternoon tour, and received a phone call informing us that it'd be delayed, because the morning tour was running long. Why? Captain Billy wanted to ensure that the morning group got to see everything -- a great reason to be slightly delayed. Our tour... More

We absolutly agree with everything already said in the other descriptions before. During the 4 hour trip Captain Rob shared with us his ernormus knowledge about dolphins life and behaviour. Very nice and friendly he payed a lot attention of everyone of us. After a short ride, about 5-10 minutes, the first group of dolphins with a mother and her... More

We picked our dolphin trip from a guide book and really lucked out! Rob was very good at explaining the boat safety rules and what to expect on our trip. He found two different groups of dolphins who came right up to the boat and put on a performance for us. The snorkeling was in beautiful clear calm waters and... More

This was our second trip with dolphin watch and we have been very happy with the experience both times. Easy on the eyes, that would be the dolphins and Cap'n Rob;)! Seriously, the Captain was very knowledgeable and we had a great viewing. We saw several groups and they literally did tricks for us! It was a wonderful experience and... More

We were a bit hesitant about picking which Dolphin tour to go on at our few days in Key West - after the tour, we knew we made the best choice! Our boat enjoyed watching one dolphin for 10-15 min, then went out to the "Dolphin Playground" where we saw a total of 9-10 dolphins including a couple young ones... More

We went on board with Capt Bill and Stephany on a private trip. They were very friendly and explained everything. We saw 5 dolphins and they stayed playing in front of us for a long time. The cathamaran was very confortable. Very nice trip!

THIS is the tour you want to take is you despise huge, commercial and intrusive Dolphin tours! The guide, Rob, was well informed and welcoming. Nothing seemed scripted nor did he seem jaded. We felt very much as though he was as excited seeing the dolphins as we were. Most importantly, he was respectful of the space and privacy of... More

Seeing dolphins is not guaranteed on any excursion like this, but Captain Rob brought us to a great location to observe dolphins in their natural habitat on our half-day trip. We saw about 8 or 9 traveling together with two juvenile dolphins. The day was pitch perfect and the clarity of the water superb. Such wonderful creatures to observe -... More
