I will never plan on doing anything with Dolfun Tours. I purchased tickets on Groupon. I went to Florida for a week and tried everyday to get hold of someone for reservations. No one ever answered the phone. The groupon says that you have to have reservations. I contacted Groupon and the said they couldn't refund my money after 3... More

Ignore all the recent bad reviews!! I have no idea why those were posted. Captain Bob was awesome and very knowledgeable about the area. He was very respectful with the dolphins and all the marine life and wildlife that we saw today. My wife and I were together with another couple that had two small children. The boat also had...

We purchased a Groupon and made a reservation for the 5 days we were in Florida. We hit traffic on the way and attempted to call several times to advise we would be a few minutes late. We arrived on the dock at 5:01pm for our 5pm reservation and the boat was in the middle of the lake indicating they... More

We got to the dock just in time ( his directions were lacking ) . After a little boring conversation with the " capt" we went on a nice boat ride. For the first 1/2 hour. Saw many nice homes, etc. Then the capt. decides to chase dolphins for an hour. And, guess what? There is a manatee crossing sign,... More

We are always looking for ways to share local interests with out-of-town guests, and were fortunate that one guest found DolFun tours for us. We went on an unusually chilly, windy day with four adults and two young children who huddled in small blankets through most of the tour. The blankets didn't stop them from leaping to their feet every... More

While this trip was worth the money, Capt. Bob needs to work on his people skills. I actually felt offended when I sat down in the first couple's seat and he said, "You can't sit there, you are too heavy. Don't you see the sign?" Actually all the sign said was "Child life preservers under seat"! I was embarrassed because... More

My family had an enjoyable time on the tour. We say many dolphin but only one manatee. You never know with nature. The air show was also going on over Melbourne so we actually had two shows to watch. The captain was pleasant and I felt very safe. I would recommend to families. I purchased our tickets from Groupon so... More

We had the best time on our tour with Dolfun. Captain Bob is extremely knowledgeable and shares so much interesting information during the tour. We were fortunate enough to see lots of dolphins in their natural habitat, so much better than seeing them through glass. We had a great time and I have recommended this tour to a number of... More
