Captain Dennis is amazing. On our 4 hour tour we did multiple dives with the dolphins. There were several other dolphin boats out there, and none of which seemed anywhere close to as experienced as Dennis. Tip**buy your own snorkel and mask. PCB has plenty of dive shops that are happy to help and fit you properly. Do not buy... More

This is an amazing experience. My fiancé and I were fortunate enough to get the opportunity to swim with pods and pods of dolphins. We also got to see a fever of stingrays and a sand shark. We highly recommend doing this trip through Water Planet. If you are planning to do this excursion though, make sure you plan to... More

Enjoyed our afternoon on the water with the dolphins. Due to heavy rains, the water was murky and not the best for seeing the dolphins. After jumping in a few times, we decided to just hang out and watch them from the pontoon. We saw a Momma and Baby several times and one point, they got crazy and started leaping... More

I had always wanted to swim with the dolphins and was thrilled to find a company that respected these beautiful animals in their natural habitat. We booked our tour with Dennis, the owner. Captain Dennis knew exactly how to pilot the boat to get our family of four in the water at the right time to view these magnificent animals.... More

Our family of 5 scheduled this outing on the morning of 7/10/13, boat broke down after about 10 min into trip. Our guide didn't have a single tool to work on motor and very little knowledge of fixing it. After about an hour stranded, a kind lady towed us in and waited another hour to attemp to fix motor to...

We booked the afternoon tour from water planet and had a wonderful experience from the beginning. Booking was friendly and easy and the staff made contact with me several times prior to the trip to introduce some education and answer all my questions. They even sent very detailed directions to the boat dock from our hotel. We arrived a little... More

We swam with dolphins, snorkeled am old shipwreck, went swimming at she'll island and snorkeled among the Jetty. We had a wonderful day and when... More

Went on the 4 hour tour today and we had the BEST time. We spent about 2 hours looking for dolphins/ swimming dolphins. It was wonderful. Then we went snorkeling and saw lots of fish, and then headed over to she'll island. You are on a pontoon boat - it was great weather and our captain was just great. He... More

My husband and I had a great experience with our 4 hour dolphin tour yesterday. Nick was a great tour guide! Don't mistake his laid back personality for unenthusiasm. He was more than willing to accomadate any special requests! We saw lots of dolphins and even a sea turtle! Supposedly that is very rare. The number of people on our... More
