Pleasant boat ride (covered) - cool breeze - lots of dolphins. Saw a baby dolphin with her mom - which was swimming on her back hitting her back fin on the water - it was awesome! The ride also has some interesting history facts with beautiful houses to see. Great for kids and adults.

For a very Modest cost, you will have a great trip out in the Intercoastal at John's Pass. Not only do they find lots of Dolphins to watch frolic, they also do a good job sight seeing the beautiful homes in the area. a Big Plus, Cold Beer and Vino is for sale.

Fantastic boat ride. Crew is friendly and personable. We seen a manatee with her baby, multiple dolphins and great bay tour of houses that included some history and current famous owners. Thanks for the afternoon!

Wow I must say, this trip will be an unforgettable one. I traveled last week with my family and we saw everything, I mean EVERYTHING. Tons of dolphins, of course, what do you expect? But... there were manatees! So many manatees. I have never seen so many in my life, (10) they surrounded the boat and came up a few... More

Great attraction and well worth the money. Everyone was so nice during my wife and my experience. But stay away from Dolphin Watch in John's Pass. The young man at the window spent over 10 minutes on the phone chatting with a friend while I waited. Then he sent my wife and me on a wild goose chase looking for... More

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

My wife and I went to St. Petersburg Florida for my wife's 60th birthday. We were looking to see Dolphins on our trip. We went to Johns Pass which is about 10 minutes away from St Petes beach. We came across a small tour hut that was advertising dolphin tours. Just by luck we went on Dolphin Quests 12:00 noon... More
