I'll be completely upfront here: our trip with Dolphin Watch was the highlight of our time in Key West. As other reviewers have mentioned (and as Dolphin Watch states on their site), the ship has a 6 passenger limit so the excursion was very intimate and interactive. Our captain, Rob, was nothing but smiles and energy from the get-go and... More

I took my husband, mother-in-law and 14 month-old daughter out on the Dolphin Watch tour and it was everything I hoped and more! Rob was an amazing captain - we saw several groups of dolphins, big and small! He then took us on a brief snorkeling trip and we finished the day by heading to a sand bar to swim... More

We had a wonderful time on this dolphin-watch and snorkel trip. Our captain Rob was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We saw about a dozen dolphins and Rob seemed to know exactly where to find them. We also had a beautiful snorkeling experience. The boat only took 6 passengers and it was nice to go with such a small group.... More

The first part of our tour was to watch the Dolphins. We saw large groups of Dolphins they swam all around the boat allowing some great photo... More

Rob was our captain on a dolphin and snorkeling trip. He was extremly friendly, know a lot and was always doing the best to let us feel very well. Do the tour with Dolphin Watch! They are just taking 6 people on a trip so you not with 30 others snorkeling. Best way you can do it!

Rob, our guide, was perfect because his objective was to maximize our satisfaction. When the snorkeling location was too choppy, he took us to another area, which he knew well. The main thing is he was in the water with us, pointing out the sea life. Prior to this, he took us to sail by dolphin groups, explaining everything we... More

One of the most magical things I've ever done in my LIFE! It was like we had angles jumping out of the water all around us in dolphin form! HAHA It was really cool to see wild dolphins so close! The boat was a sailing cat converted into a cruising motor cat and only took a max of 6 people... More

Our family of four went on 8/1/15, and had an excellent time! The boat was roomy, the guide was knowledgeable, and we saw multiple groups of dolphins. We saw rays and colorful fish at the snorkeling spot as well. Great job Rob!

We enjoyed this activity from beginning to end. Our Captain Stephanie was very sweet and knowledgable about the area and the dolphins. We saw a large number of dolphins...they were so beautiful! And we really enjoyed the snorkeling!
