In September 2014 we took the Dolphin Quest tour for the 3rd year in a row. Over 20 dolphin were seen. Some dolphins were next to the boat, some jumping out of the water, some just playing around, and many babies with their moms. It was wonderful. The boat would go where ever the dolphins were spotted. The staff on... More

We all had a ball viewing the dolphins and beautiful homes. The captain was amazing and the boat was fairly clean. It was well worth the money!

we took this trip in August this year and what a trip it was, fantastic weather, really relaxing and calm and the captain was informative and funny. And we then saw the dolphins- it was pure joy, the screeches and sqweels coming from delighted children and adults as dolphins swam and jumped alongside with their babies-wow- then we took a... More

This was a great trip! Captain John and 1st Mate Claudia were knowledgeable and tons of fun. We saw at least 5 pods of dolphin including several with babies, a Manatee as well as multiple types of birds. We were on the 6:00 cruise on August 8th.

We took the 2:00 cruise on Thursday, July 31. It was an absolutely amazing experience. We saw so many dolphins, including a group of about 15-20 dolphins at the same time. There were at least two baby dolphins. They seemed very excited to show off and to interact with the boat. Captain Greg had lots of interesting facts to share... More

Captain Greg was full of interesting facts about the surrounding area as well as the dolphins he successfully kept in sight! He even looked up dolphin sounds on his phone and played then over the intercom much to... More

My family of 3 took the 12pm trip on July 30 after making a phone reservation that same morning. The boat was stable and comfortable without feeling crowded. We grabbed seats in the front third of the boat. Once you leave the dock, Captain Greg will let you know that you can stand up and walk around. Don't be shy,... More

Saw a good amount of dolphins and one of them was a baby with its mother. The baby was about the size of two 2 liter soda bottles. It was something special to see how the baby would never drift away and would follow the same motion as the mother. Other parts of the tour were seeing the different buildings... More
