It wasn't far to the snorkeling area where we saw plenty of fish and lobster. Beautiful. Plenty of snorkeling time before... More

Captain Gary took us on a wonderful day on the water. We saw 20 dolphins including 2 babies! Also great snorkeling. The water was 5 different shades of turquoise. A part of key west you can only experience on the water. It is a don't miss trip.

We took an afternoon cruise on Monday, February 23, 2015. Cruises are limited to 6 guests - our cruise had four total. Captain Gary is just a hoot, and is very knowledgeable. He has worked years to gain the trust of the dolphins by not chasing or harassing them as other charters do. The dolphins know the sound of each... More

We where on a trip with Capt. Gary in the spring 2013. We had a great time and saw a lot of dolphins. I also liked the snorkling and sunset view from the ocean. If i have to say some negative point that should be: - He bring a BIG dog. The dog is friendly but barking a lot. (As... More

One of the things at the top of our to-do list was seeing Dolphins, and another was snorkeling. We got both with Dolphin Safari. We went out with Captain Kasey, who was fantastic at spotting Dolphins and extremely knowledgeable about wildlife! We watched... More

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

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
