Our tour guide Richard was extremely knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. We were able to see multiple Dolphins and they were very close- about 3 feet away! After we saw the Dolphins we snorkeled and saw many fish and lobster. Then we got to watch the beautiful sunset. AMAZING EXPERIENCE And very much recommended!

Smaller boat so smaller group and more personal the tour. We had capt Richard and it was a great trip. I would recommend over the crowded boats that end up in same spots.

We did the Sunset Cruise while visiting Key West and it was a blast! On this cruise we got to Dolphin watch and snorkel. Captain Gary was a blast and really showed us a great time!!

I had read reviews about seeing lots and lots of dolphins on TripAdvisor. Frankly I was excited that seeing these animals would be easier in Florida vs. California. On this trip with Captain Gary, it was just my husband and myself. He’s a congenial and talkative man. Even though I had absolutely no experience snorkeling and very limited swimming ability...

This was a wonderful experience. Captain Gary took our group out about 6 miles into the gulf. There we were able to experience the dolphins in there own playground. We went snorkeling in a coral reef. The captain was very interesting and educated us on the area and wildlife . We saw the sunset at Mallory Square . The experience... More

Dolphin safari is surely the best thing going in key west! Captain Gary and first mate Shannon were amazing. Both of them were charming, friendly and knowledgable and really knew how to make this trip memorable for us and for our 13 year old daughter. We couldn't have had a better time and would highly recommend them to anyone!!

Small group tours to seek dolphins......no touching, feeding or swimming allowed, just watching them played in their natural habitat. Our captain/tour guide found a perfect spot with about 15 dolphins. Then we went snorkeling and watched the sunset which couldn't be better way to wrap the day.

We went out 6 miles into the gulf and watched the Dolphins. They were beautiful and Gary and was very informative. We went further out near another island and went... More
