I am appalled by the arrogance of a company that treats its potential customers the way we were treated. Dolphin Quest's website encourages online booking because the trip bookings "fill quickly". I believed it and tried to make a reservation for two of us on a 2:00 trip. It didn't seem to go through, so I called and completed the... More

I had a really good time listening to the stories about the sorrounding, expensive houses, the view, the dolphins, stingrays, the birds. The tour was about 1 hour to 1 and a half the tour guides were really friendly and funny I had a really good time

We booked a party of 12 the morning of the tour for 4:00. Due to the lack of parking around John's Pass we had to make two car trips to accommodate our large party. Granted, we arrived at 3:58 which we understand is under the gun and shame on us, however we could not see any boat leaving which means... More

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
