We scheduled the noon tour and had a great time. Capt Gary is funny and very personable. The color of the water is an amazing turquoise. The dolphins ventured right up to the boat and swam along with us, closest we've ever been to them. Got to take great pics. Highly recommend!

My husband and I visited Key West for our honeymoon and had booked three different boating trips. Of all three, this one was the best if you're looking to have an up close experience with the wildlife. Captain Kenny was genuine, funny and very informative. We were able to see dolphins in their natural habitat, but he was mindful of... More

My wife and I decided to do the dolphin safari on our last vacation to Key West, it could not have been a better experience! We were able to see Dolphins in their natural habitat, snorkel and watch a beautiful sunset! I would recommend going on the sunset trip and trying to get Capt. Gary because he made the entire...

Just enjoyed a dolphin safari & snorkling trip together with my 7 year old daugther. It was fabulous! Dolphins, sting ray, nurse shark and even a manatee in the harbour. Professional and fun guide. TOP!

Since they have small boats (don't worry , safe enough), all 4 members of family completed the crew....private boat for us... Yes we saw dolphins but in respect of their natural living... As for snorkling... It... More

August 2014: just got back from a great trip. Captain Gary was the best. Found lots of Dolphin including a baby with its mother. Snorkeling was tons of fun - anyone can do it. It was my first time and would love to go again. Don't miss this trip.

First of all, the boats are small and accommodate 6 people max, which makes for a good experience as it makes for a tailored experience. Captain Richard was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw dolphins very early after leaving the harbour. It was an amazing feeling! We stayed around there for as long as we wanted and moved on after... More

Had the best time on dolphin safari, saw a lot of dolphins when we reached out to the open sea. The water was crystal clear. For me the best experience was snorkling, it was my firts time, just loved it. To our big surprise we also had an encounter with a shark, scary...
