Nice being out on the water, no manatees.

Nice boat ride, saw some dolphins. Captain gave some good info. He made a few questionable comments which were political in nature and irrelevant to a boat tour to see animals... read more

Being that it was a holiday weekend, my husband and I decided to leave home early to allow for beach traffic. We arrived 35 minutes before the scheduled tour time. At 30 minutes until, we asked the only person on the boat if we could board. He proceeded to argue with us that the ticket says not to arrive early,... More

Nice boat ride, saw some dolphins. Captain gave some good info. He made a few questionable comments which were political in nature and irrelevant to a boat tour to see animals. Kids loved swimming in the river. Liked that we were permitted to bring our own food and drink aboard.

I was planning an early Father's Day surprise for my husband and bought tickets for June, 14 2015 with Dolfun Tour. Our reservations was for 1pm the confirmation email stated to arrive 20 min early. We arrived earlier than that because we were very excited. When Captain Bob Ballinger arrived he was very rude and disrespectful. I am a Muslim... More

Purchased a Groupon and was a bit concerned but pleasantly surprised. The boat was very clean, price was great. Caption Bob was very knowledgeable and funny. I would recommend!!!

We arrived early and walked up to the boat to ask if we needed to go into the office first or should we just wait. Capt. Bob rudely informed us that if we had read the info on the website we would know what to do and he didn't have time to answer questions. Huh? I was flabbergasted. How this... More

My family and I tried to book our group on ( Amazon) that we had purchased. Did everything that we were told to do and still no reply. I drove to the marina myself and come to find out the captain was not even in town. Oh well to our sadness of wanting to see Dolphins and Manatees I did... More

Tried to use a groupon and they were SO unfriendly. Called FOURTEEN times NO answer. When I emailed him "Captain" Bob was horribly rude. Never got to go and wasted money. This place should be shut down. Put a horrible taste in our mouth for Florida.

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...
