Great little 1.5hr tour to see dolphins.

This is an awesome, inexpensive, way to take a 1.5hr tour of the nearby bay and see a few dolphins close up. The crew know their stuff and are very fun. I took my 81 year old... read more

Easy to find; relaxing trip and saw dolphins swimming right next to the boat! What more could you want?

Took our out of town friends on the Dolphin Quest. Very reasonable for 1 1/2 hour trip in bay and gulf. We actually saw several Dolphins, along with beautiful homes. Much more reasonable than Hubbards, which offered only 1/2 hour Dolphin Watch for more money per person.

Fun afternoon out on a boat. We saw a bunch of Dolphins, herons, and manatees.the tour guides were great - they were very knowledgeable. Enjoyed seeing the millionaires' houses. Well worth the money!

For the price of the tour, I had rather low expectations and assumed it would be lame. I'm happy that I was wrong! The tour was great, as we saw numerous dolphins and were given a narrative history of the surrounding area and houses.

On a very hot day the only thing we wanted was AC but this tour on a smaller boat with plenty of cover was not only comfortable but very entertaining. Having been on other similar tours this one beats them all. The captain and mate were just really nice likable entertaining guys that know their stuff and play some good... More

This was one of my favorite activities during our recent trip to the Treasure Island area. The pontoon-like boat was just the right size. It is one level and quests are welcome to get up and walk around the boat during the cruise. The Captain and his assistant were exceptional. The Captain provided a lot of detailed information about the... More

The Captain and crew were so knowledgeable and friendly and willing to tailor the experience to the group on board.. We did see dolphins and other sea life. I've been on dolphin cruises before but this was way less crowded, more relaxed and could purchase beer, wine and other adult beverages at a super low price but no one was... More
