This trip was fantastic, our Captain name was George and was just a great guy. There were only 4 of us so we got great treatment. we were out 3 and a half hrs and were lucky enough to see a pod of Dolphins mating in their natural habitat. The snorkeling was fun and the sunset at the end was... More

Captain Adam was a great, friendly, helpful guide and we saw plenty of dolphins, but I would recommend not to do this trip if you want to see coral and fish. We were taken to a sandy weedy area with no fish at all except for a handful of small fish (I counted 2 species) swimming around a couple of... More

Just got back from an absolutely fantastic afternoon. Adam was excellent!! Took us to all the best places where we saw lots of dolphins, 7 in a pod at one time. The snorkeling was also top notch and Adam joined us in the water and even caught a lobster for us to see (he did let it go after) saw... More

We took an afternoon cruise on Saturday, October 18th, 2014. They limit these cruises to a maximum of 6 guests, which makes for a very nice group. My wife and I were joined by one other couple. Captain Gary was an absolute pleasure to be with from start to stop. We headed out looking for dolphins. Along the way Gary... More

We spent an afternoon (about 3.5 - 4 hours) with Captain Kenny and another couple (just us four on this trip) dolphin spotting and snorkeling. The trip pace was unhurried and very comfortable. The small boat (seats a max of 6) was clean and well maintained. The captain took time to explain the safety items and procedures and even how... More

Had a great trip with Captain Gary. We were able to see more than one pod of dolphins up close. They came right up yo the boat for a wonderful photo op. Gary recognized them all and pointed out the differences. Snorkelling was well organized and you didn't feel rushed. It's not Hawaii or the Great Barrier Reef but interesting... More

Then off to a wonderful place to snorkel were we saw a variety of fish and corals. Trip was made complete by sitting... More

An idyllic day on the water with Captain Kenny. The boat was clean and comfortable. The trip was relaxed and four hours got us sun, dolphins, snorkeling and swimming in the warm waters. If you snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef or the Maldives don't make the comparison. It's just the enjoyment if the water and scenery.

I did the sunset trip and we saw a lot of dolphins close up. The best snorkeling I've ever done! I swam with giant manta rays, Goliath groupers, and sea turtles. The small group allows for individual attention & great viewing for everyone on board. Fantastic experience!

Captain Gary is a great guide who gave us a wonderful experience on the waters surrounding Key West. We signed up for snorkeling and dolphin watching but ended up just cruising around and enjoying the waters off Key West. Captain Gary's boat was capable of taking six people but only the three of us showed up so we were able... More
