My sister and I went on this boat trip on Feb. 24th, 2014. We were on the tour with a couple who were great company and lovely people. John, the boat owner and tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and generous in answering our questions which he has probably heard a million times. We truly felt like we were living the... More

John was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide for both dolphin-watching and also snorkeling. We saw tens of dolphins (even a mother and baby), and many were quite close to the catamaran. With only four of us, he gave plenty of attention, information, and answered our many questions. He snorkeled with us for a time, which was awesome....pointing out sea creatures,... More

The captain was great. Super smooth ride. So relaxing. Lots of dolphin sightings. So interesting to follow dolphins in the wild. All 3 of my teenage kids loved it! Highly recommend!!

We had a great time one the boat with our guide Jon. Altogether, we were 5 people plus Jon on the boat. It took us about 2 hours to find a group of dolphins (though the weather and sea conditions were really calm and good). Then we had plenty of time watching a group of dolphins play around. We followed... More

Captain is very experienced. Unforgettable dolphin encounter. He also knows area quite well. The snorkeling is very good. He actually took care of my two little one on boat so we can enjoy the water.

This is a "can't miss" in the Keys. If you're looking for a day of relaxed boating and dolphin viewing with a knowledgeable and genuinely nice guy you can't go wrong with John. He is attentive to your needs and tries hard to make sure you get what you've paid for. When we return, we will certainly make sure an... More

Had a great afternoon with John. He worked hard finding dolphins for us, had lots of useful knowledge and found the best place to view the sunset.

We went on Dolphin Watch in November. It was hands down the highlight of our trip. John assured us that we would see dolphins and wow....we saw lots and lots of dolphins, including a little bambino dolphin...so cute! John, the captain, also knows a lot about dolphins (all kinds of dolphins) which was great considering I had so many questions.... More
