I go on this trip twice a year..I have tried another company but riding in a speedboat in the open Florida is too hot...Dolphin Quest has a nice canopy and they drive nice and slow....they are very courteous to the dolphins and do not chase them.....the captain is very knowledgeable and pleasant....love, love, love this company.

watching the dolphins was a lot of fun for the whole family. We stopped multiple places throughout the bay and watched a number of dolphins/pods. The trip included a fun tour of sites and fancy homes around the bay. The guys definitely know where to go and what to look for.

Have been visiting Florida for years and never done this before. Nice guides who weren't too "in your face" or annoying. Very fun! Even brought our alcoholic drinks on board with us which they allowed. My dad loves real estate and we all enjoyed checking out the waterfront Homes and seeing dolphins every few minutes. A fun time!

Beautiful day for this boat trip. Saw a few Dolphins. Staff does a great job. I was with some locals and even they were not aware of some of the interesting facts we learned.

We took an 1,5hrs dolphin cruise (groupon deal!), sailed out to closest sand reef after St John's Pass bridge - and there they were! 2-3 adults and 3-4 youngsters began to play around the boat. Magnificiant! This lasted around 20-30min. Then the rest of the cruise was some kind of a sightseeing tour at the gulf side. Unfortunately this latter... More

There she blows was what we was to yell out when you seen the first Dolphins and the first person to see one got a sharks tooth from the captain. It was a nice day and the captain was very knowledgable about where the dolphins were and all the house and the rich owners. They did offer cocktails for a... More

What a wonderful adventure! We saw a pod of dolphins and followed them for quite a while. The captain/tour guide was very knowledgable and entertaining. All of the staff were friendly and fun. It was great! Highly recommended:)

Captain John and his first mate Jason were an absolute pleasure on this trip. Capt John had us laughing all ride long, gave us a ton of knowledge about the area, and also showed us some of the really nice homes in the area! From the time we were waiting on the dock to board the boat, we were seeing... More
