Calm clear water, 6 guests on board, Friendly Capt. Rob, how can it get better? Multiple dolphin sightings, large sea turtle, and a suprising appearance of a Sting Ray. Great snorkling and a perfect ending to our vacation. Go Yankees = private joke

We started with the dolphin tour. Rob drove the boat out toward a place he said we can usually see dolphins. These were wild dolphins, free to go wherever they wanted, and the tour companies don't feed them, so sometimes, they were nowhere to be found. Not so today... we found a small group right away. Our group was excited... More

Our Dolphin Watch excursion was EASILY the highlight of our trip. Captain Rob was friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. We saw two groups of dolphins: one sleeping group on the way to the snorkeling site and one playful group (including four curious babies!) on the way back in. Some earlier weather had churned up the water a bit, so snorkeling visibility... More

We had a fabulous time going out with Stephanie. We were fortunate enough to watch at least nine wild dolphin playing for about an hour. Incredible experience! Afterwards we went to snorkle and Stephanie was very patient in explaining to first timers. We saw several varieties of fish and stingrays. What a great experience. Would highly recommend!!

We had a fantastic time with Captain Rob as our guide. We saw dolphins up close -- even two young baby dolphins and more! Rob was very accommodating to what we wanted to see and do. He served us some mouth watering sliced pineapple and mangoes after snorkeling. We saw some pretty fish. He was kind and patient to our... More

My wife and I went on this expedition on July 18th and had such a great time, the boat was very nice and clean, as well as there was fruits and water provided. The captain was exceptional and provided us with answers to all of our questions, not to mention he had a very upbeat and energetic personality. We also... More

Stephanie was our captain and gave us some fantastic information about dolphins aswell as info about Key West and surrounding area. We didn't have to wait too long to see a... More

I highly recommend Captain Billy's tour. He was great at answering many questions. We saw lots of dolphins and got to snorkel. There were only 5 of us on the tour. Very personal. We really enjoyed it.
