This was a really fantastic trip. We chose the morning trip which left at 9.30am so time for breakfast at Harpoon Harry's before hand. We found the boat at the end of William Street. Rob our skipper greeted us and 2 other couples and gave a full safety briefing before setting off. We were really lucky and found dolphins almost... More

The tour only takes 6 people at a time which makes the experience feel like a private charter. We saw dolphins in their natural habitat. And we were lucky enough to see stingrays on the scuba part of the tour and even a turtle on the way back. Captain Rob was fantastic. He has a real passion and his knowledge... More

I sat on the bow of the boat in the first row of seats. It got a little windy, but the view was well worth it. The route was from Savannah to the sea by way of the river. We went past both Fort Jackson and Fort Polaski on our was toward the ocean. Since we were out in the... More

Had an awesome time with our captain, Rob, saw a lot of dolphins and had a great time. Best of all was the knowledge about the life and habits of these animals and the encounters we had with the dolphins were on their terms. A small and truly genuine company and we really, really recommend going with these guys!

My husband & I decided on this trip because of the reviews found here. Captain Billy did not disappoint. We saw several Dolphins and then traveled to a reef area for snorkeling. All in all, it was a great trip and I highly recommend it!

On New Year's day 2015 (yes, am a bit late in writing our review), to celebrate my twins 18th birthdays the next day, we had booked a half-day private charter with captain Billy. He and a friend were right on time (not a given in Key West...) and took us out for a great afternoon on the water. The catamaran,... More

Had a great time. Our captain, Rob, did a great job and made the trip that much more enjoyable. We saw lots of dolphins and had a great snorkeling experience in the sponge gardens as well despite the choppy waters. I would definitely recommend this boat trip.

This was an awesome experience! Rob was so great and personable. We saw a group of about 20-30 dolphins!!! We followed them for a bit and even got to see a few jump in and out of the wakes. Snorkeling was also super cool and refreshing on a hot day! We saw a sting ray!! We would definitely do it... More

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
