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

Stay away!!! Captain Bob has the worst attitude ever. I could not believe my ears. I purchased Groupons for the tour as a birthday gift for my daughter on vacation along with my husband and two other kids. We reserved for the 11:00 am tour well in advance (about a month). Just to be clear the Groupon was for a... More

Went today to take the dolfun tour ride. Saw lots of Dolphins, especially in the beginning. Also saw a variety of birds. No manatees but when you're dealing with wildlife you just never know. Captain Bob was nice enough, but had a dry sense of humor that was hard for kids to get. Got the deal from groupon and couldn't... More

I went today with a large group, plus there were a few families on board so it was a full boat. We had the same caption as everyone else below in the comments, and he wasn't rude for the most part but there was one comment though, about the tourists on the jetski that was a little off taste. Anyway,... More

It was a fun 2 hour outing in the river....the tour guide was entertaining and gave us lots of good information. They let you bring your own drinks and snacks. We spent a full 2 hours on the water and saw lots of dolphin, some manatees and even a big sea turtle. It is a fun outing and the dolphin... More

Great boat, good sights but the rudest person I've ever encountered in a customer service position. Made multiple sarcastic and rude comments about our small children crying and refused to answer questions regarding the wildlife. Every comment and response was unnecessarily rude. Get a new captain and it would be worth the time and money.

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
