A great trip with a funny guy! We were able to see many dolphins - which is never guaranteed on a tour. The snorkeling was awesome to see the underwater landscape and many fish and other stuff you've never seen before. We had luck to see a swarm of giant fish und swam with 3 sharks (one of them was...

Don't go with the big guys on a boat with 18+ people. Captain George with Dolphin Safari on a boat with 4-6 people. Get closer to the dolphins on this personalized trip.

Dolphins everywhere, neat snorkeling in the sponge gardens and an epic Key West sunset -- what more could you ask for?

We celebrated our sons 13 birthday by booking a trip with Captain Gary. This will be his most memorable birthday ever! Gary runs a really professional operation and he is passionate about what he does. We booked a 4 hour dolphin and snorkel trip and we got more than we ever expected. We saw dolphins in open water only minutes... More
