My family very much enjoyed this tour and experience. We only saw a small handful of dolphins, but I think that was due to the time of our tour. The snorkeling was pretty decent. We found a number of sand dollars and a couple of starfish. I would recommend to anyone to do this tour.

First off our guide was super friendly and knew just where to find dolphins at. We got to swim with them and watch them. He then took us way out Shell Island away from the other people so we could snorkel by ourselves which was awesome. Found some pretty shells and sand dollars to bring home. We had a lot... More

Our family took a dolphin snorkel tour on July 10th, 2014 and it was AMAZING! Captain Brian was terrific and very good with our daughters ages 13 & 10. They were cautious to get in the water, and Brian was patient and encouraged them (& even jumped to swim with them once the boat was anchored:) We had a couple... More

OMG, doesn't begin to describe the excitement. Captain Mike was the best. He knows exactly where to go, how to turn the boat for best viewing and tells you where & when to jump in to watch dolphins underwater, up close & personal. He does follow the rules & never puts you or the dolphins in danger. We saw many,... More

Ask for Captain Mike! He is Awesome! My family went on the dolphin cruise on July 2, 2014 and it was AMAZING. There were six of us in our party… 4 Adults and 2 Teenagers. We paid for the extra hour and took the evening cruise. I was very nervous that it would be a flop but this ended up... More

We had a great day snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins with Captain Tim. He made sure we saw dolphins. We got to swim up next to several dolphins. There were lots of other boats trying to get a close up but he made sure that we were right there so we could get plenty of pictures of the dolphins.... More
