My wife and I are seasoned visitors to Key West. We are over all the standard tourist things to do - we have done the jet ski tours, the bike rides, museums, fishing trips etc... I needed to find something for us to do that was a little outside the box. I decided to go with Wild Dolphin Adventures because... More

We did the sunset boat ride. The boat left on time and the boat was very clean. We went to watch dolphins and the other couple on the boat went snorkling. The boat says it has a bathroom....not so filled with stuff. Overall a great adventure for the price.

The website pictures are photoshopped; you are not actually able to swim with the dolphins. Our captain even admitted that it's false advertising. You will drive around for about 4 hours on a boat that provides nothing but a bottle of water and hope to spot a fin at best. For close to $90 they could have at least given... More

Capt John did an amazing job. We had a group of 4 with 1 child who had not been in the ocean before. We found a couple pods of dolphins very quickly and spent a couple hours watching them.best part was a mom and her young baby dolphin.Capt John pulled ahead of the dolphins pretty far and we were able...

We did not want to see dolphins trapped in a big fish tank doing stupid pet tricks, so we looked for a tour that would take us out to where the dolphins are. We booked a private charter with Capt Dave of Wild Dolphin Adventures several months in advance. He provides LOTS of information about what to expect – some... More

We went out on a private charter for a few hours and did the clothing opitional thing. We had a very nice afternoon on the water. These are nice folks to deal with thru the questions and booking. They gave us exactly what we wanted. I think the Clothing Opitional Private Charters are maybe a little side line, they do... More

We went on that trip on May 4th 2011 and it was just wonderful! We went with captain John who was very nice and patient ( we went on and off the boat several times, he took us to different spots and did his best to enable us to see dolphins and snorkel close to them ). He told us... More

The dolphin adventure was by far the best snorkel/dolphin experience I've ever had. The Captain was extremely professiona and courteous. He didn't rush anyone's experience and let the guests set the pace. Although the waters were too rough to swim with the dolphins, they came right up to the boat and played under and around the boat for at least... More

My husband, his parents and I were down in Ft. Lauderdale for a week and decided to go down to Key West. My mom-in-law and I called up Wild Dolphin Adventures because after I saw the documentary "The Cove" I didn't want to support any program where dolphins are being held in captivity. We got an appointment for the next... More

While in Key West the week of 06/14/2010 my family and I decided to try out Wild Dolphin Adventures. I have to tell you that this was an AWESOME experience. Not only was the ride out to the Dolphin Pod area amazingly beautiful, our guide was so knowledgeable about the wild dolphins, their individual names, markings and behaviors. We saw... More
