We went with a family group of 26 people ranging in age of 7-64. We didn't see many dolphins, many of us didn't see any. It was about $120 for my family of 5, kind of expensive I thought. Especially since our trip was cut short due to weather (less than 2 hours). The place they took us to snorkel... More

I'm sorry that you did not have an enjoyable experience on your tour. However I think you have made a review on the wrong business site. We offer a 2 hour swim with the dolphins boat tour that does not hold more than 6 people. Also, we charge $49 per person for this trip. If you booked through the Marriot... More

We went on the 9:00 tour and saw one dolphin right away near the floating bait shop. We continued through the bay and saw a mother and young calf. We had a final sighting near some fisherman. Then we went to shell island and it was beautiful! We actually saw some dolphins playing in the waves while we were sitting... More

Great tour guide, very knowledgeable and helpful. Makes sure everyone is having one. Doesn't let anyone get behind. Great Jet Skis. Life jackets could be better.

We had a great morning with Tim. He took us at 8 am out to see dolphins and marine life around and at shell island. He made an extra effort to make this a fun, learning and special experience for my kids. Would definitely go again!

Booked the tour online. Weather has been clear all week so water was clear. Capt Tim took us out on a 24 ft fiberglass hull with twin Honda 90's. Travels much faster than the pontoon boats. It is a quick trip up the harbor to first stop in the bay. Saw several dolphin around Capt Charles Bait Barge. Took us... More

My best friend, her 10 year old daughter and myself booked a Dolphin Tour by boat while in Panama City with this company! We were told by our captain (Chuy) that we may or may not see dolphins but he would make every effort to locate some. We were completely understanding of this and would have been completely happy with... More

This trip was to be the highlight of our trip because I really wanted my kids to experience swimming with dolphins but unfortunately we only saw one. I understand this was at no fault of our tour guide (you cant control wild animals). Our captain was chris and he was great. He was fun and informative and made sure we... More

We went and had an amazing time! Took the early tour and there was only 1 other family on the boat with us. We had the ghost of Sammy Hagar past piloting our boat and he was a blast. We got to see a giant manta ray, plenty of dolphins, and a good number of jellyfish (eek)!! Remember folks you... More

My husband and our 4 TEENS had an incredible time on our 2 hour excursion. The waves were a little crazy , but Tim made sure that we found dolphins and were able to snorkel. The dolphins...wow. I was worried about the kids and snorkeling, but they all did great. We found awesome shells, and Tim helped my youngest find... More
