My wife and I had a really fun trip with this tour. By the name dolphin quest you expect to see dolphins. Well, We saw 4 different pods of dolphins in our 1.5 hour journey. Also the captain and crew were very educated on the different sea life. The crew would point out everything from dolphins to pelicans, stingrays, different... More

He got the boat right up close, so we could get closeups of the Dolphins. He took us to see some Million dollar homes and the people that own them, that... More

My husband and I were looking for an afternoon outdoor activity while visiting the Tampa area. Dolphin Quest far exceeded our expectations. The crew was friendly and very knowledgeable. We floated through the Madeira Beach Bay Area for 90 minutes seeing approximately 2 dozen dolphins. Couldn't ask for more! We were also thrilled with how reasonably priced the tour was.... More

You're basically climbing aboard a big pontoon with about 20 people and driving around the bay looking for a dolphin to surface- momentarily. You're seated on one side and if the Dolphins come up to breathe on the opposite side, you're SOL for viewing. The viewings are brief, random, and frustrating. Save your money unless you want to view the... More

Nice boat that was clean and comfortable. We saw lots of dolphins and Capt Greg was excellent at maneuvering the boat for the best view. Jerry on board was a font of information about the dolphins and the area. Have a great time.

My son is obsessed with dolphins. We took him on several dolphin cruises while in the area and this one was by far the favorite. Staff was friendly and extremely personable. Clearly they enjoy what they do! The price was very reasonable and the overall experience was very organized. I would suggest making a reservation ... they seem to sell... More

My spouse and I live south of the Sarasota area, so we try to take a "staycation" by the beaches of St Pete, whenever we can. One of our favorite things to do, is the Johns Pass area, with all the shopping and dining and entertainment choices. Our must do is the Dolphin Quest. The day wasn't super warm, but... More
