How dumb. We bought a groupon, booked in advance, got a confirmation online that we had a reservation and everything. It was strange I kept trying to call the office and I never got a person, just a recording, but we had the confirmation, so off we go, drive for 30 minutes, get to the marina 30 min in advance...

I took some out of town family guests on this tour in order to give them a feel for the Indian River and to see some wildlife. Long and boring. Almost fell asleep. We only went between the two causeways and went around in a circle for about 30-45 minutes. Saw a few dolfins, and a few birds, but that... More

We purchased the tour through a Groupon offer. We took friends from the U.K. and other family members. We enjoyed the boat ride and seeing the variety of birds, beautiful homes and naturally the dolphins. Captain Bob was very friendly with our group and provided a lot of information on the tour. We got to enjoy baby dolphins jumping out... More

Nice boat ride. But as others have described, Bob could use some personality in his way he approaches his customers. He wouldn't let us board the boat till almost departing time and we were sent over to an area of seating that looked like it had so called survived a few hurricanes. My mom got some bug bites just sitting... More

My family and I of 11 all purchased groupons for the dolphin tour. The staff was very nice in accommodating us while we waited to board. As we began to board the captain rudely asked "And the money...?" None of our party noticed in the small print that there would be sales tax, which was our mistake. We scrambled to... More

Yesterday, I learned there is indeed something worse than being stuck on a boat with a narcissist. Being stuck on a boat with a narcissist that has microphone.

Capt Bob was there & said there was space & would board shortly. We saw a bunch of dolphins jumping & flipping in the lagoon.Lots of dolphin families swimming around... More

We had a great time with Captain Bob - we saw so many dolphins, including moms and babies swimming together! He also had lots of information about the surrounding homes and structures. The boat itself was very new and clean. We were very pleased with our experience and would recommend to friends!

My husband and I took our 10 and 6 year old on this afternoon boat ride. We brought a small cooler with picnic lunch and beverages. Each child was armed with their own cameras and perked right up as Captain Bob found us lots of dolphins! The tour was the perfect amount of time. The boat was really nice. The... More
