We absolutely loved our dolphin watch excursion. The captain of the boat is so knowledgeable, fun, and engaging. We spent about 30 to 45 minutes watching dolphins in the wild (and our captain made sure to not disturb them) then about an hour and a half snorkeling a beautiful reef. The captain even helped us get some great go pro... More

Wow! We saw families of Dolphins, single Dolphins, and pairs of Dolphins. Afterwards, we snorkeled. We hit two great spots, reefs and the sponge area. At the reefs, we saw tons of barracudas, stingrays, and one nurse shark! Yikes. Great times, highly recommend these guys....captain Billie was great....

The captain was very knowledgeable and he knew where the Dolphin's were. We had a good view of around 10 dolphins in the wild and this was my and my girlfriend's first snorkeling experience. We don't know swimming and were worried if we we could snorkel. Again, The captain was really helpful and thought me the basics. I went in... More

We chose this trip because of the combination of dolphin watching and snorkeling, and Dolphin Watch provided a great experience! Our captain Rob was so kind and made us feel safe and confident on the boat. The max number of guests on the boat is six; two of us were with just one couple so it almost felt like a... More

We had the private charter for our small party of five with some special needs among us and recieved first class service from the first enquiry through to leaving the catamaran. Great dolphin watching and snorkelling in two awesome locations. THANKYOU so much dolphin watch for helping make such perfect memories. 😊

Let me tell you, they are AMAZING! The boat was large and comfortable, with an area for changing and a bathroom. There were nice places to sit on the back of the boat was well as a large area in the front for lounging, and most importantly, dolphin watching! They only take 6 passengers so it is a nice low...

We were treated to an amazing day of dolphin mania! Pods everywhere, with babies jumping out of the water all around the boat. There were dolphins doing front flips, back flips, and side splashes. There were dolphins circling the boat, lazily passing by, and looking up at us. There were also dolphins doing that thing that results in more dolphins.... More
