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

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

What a day!!! My wife and I were looking for something to do on our next to last night on the Island. We found Dolphin Safari. We arrived at the pier at 4:00PM and met Captain Adam. (A Yankee transplant but a great guy) His tours are small and personal. Our trip consisted of a family of 4 from Canada,... More

Three boats went out on our trip as they limit the number of passengers to six on each boat. There were no Dolphins to be found in the harbour area so Captain Trish took us further out where a sizeable pod of dolphins were found, including some juveniles who were having fun doing back splashes. Upon returning, more Dolphins were... More

Hubby, myself, and two kids daughter 12, son 14 went on 4:30 trip. We saw LOTS of Dolphins first. They will even swim up close to the boat. We got some great videos and pics with our cell phones. 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
