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

When on a tour with my wife and in-laws. Captain Kasey was great and it was a well run operation. We lucked out and had great weather, saw dolphins up close, snorkled and saw a great sunset

My husband and I brought our two married daughters and their husbands for a special birthday celebration. 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

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
