Our hotel concierge at Blue Marlin, Key West recommended this tour over the other, less expensive, reef snorkel tours because it was 'smaller' only 6 people to a tour, and that wetsuits would be included in the price. When we arrived at 8:30 am, the time she recommended we show, we had to wait 1 whole hour for anyone to... More

He answered any and all questions we had. Had snacks, water and coolers. Perfect weather!! The dolphins were awesome. They were all around us. I mean we could... More

Went on a late afternoon cruise to catch some dolphin activity, snorkel and watch the sunset. Victor had the dolphin location nailed; we watched about 8 of them play around for 30-40 minutes. Watching the sunset from the water was a trip highlight. Definitely ask for Victor when you're making a reservation. He was a great tour guide with a... More

Highlight of our key west trip. Great day out on the water. Loved the small group 6 pp per boat idea. Makes for a more personal adventure. Captain Victor was just an amazing guide. He made us all feel like family within the 3 plus hours. Snorkeling and dolphin watching was mesmerizing. But the best was watching the sunset on... More

We spent Christmas day on a dolphin safari trip. It was nice to be on a smaller boat (6 per boat). We went out to where they knew the dolphins would be. There were about 6 to 8 dolphins with 2 of them being little babies. One was tiny. We were close enough to get some great pictures. After that... More

We had a great time. First we saw the dolphins (3 of them), then snorkeling. We first met Captain Gary at the Hyatt Beach House and were lucky to get him as our guide the next day. Lots of fun and laughs were had, and he was very patient with the snorkeling newbies in our group. I definitely recommend this... More

Captain Victor was very helpful, I was able to snorkel with his help. I have wanted to snorkel for years but always chickened out because of my disability. His great attitude and help made it a wonderful trip.
