This was an amazing experience. We went on the 9am tour and wasted no time. Our captain was Roseann. She was very knowledgable about everything. She quickly found the dolphins and told us what to do. It was hard at first to get the hang of , but at the end, the dolphins were right underneath us. We also did... More

At first we were all a little unsure when we saw our Captain...but he was nothing short of amazing! He was young but friendly, knowledgeably, and safe. He always had animals and passengers safety in mind. We all got to swim with dolphins. And then had a blast snorkeling. We actually drove in on our vacation to Destim because there... More

Captain Nick was amazing! He found the dolphins but reminded us not to stay calm and not touch them. The dolphins would circle us and rub against us. Completely amazing! Nick and his interns were very sweet, encouraging, and patient with two of the kids with special needs in our group. He also took us to his special shelling spot... More

This trip went above and beyond meeting our expectations. With only 6 passengers, Nick was able to adjust our trip to make it the best experience possible. He was knowledgable about the areas to visit to see many dolphins and to avoid crowds of other boaters. The ladder made getting out of the water easy. The dolphins were frequently only... More

This experience was nothing but incredible! I am not a deep water lover, and thought I would have a hard time getting into the water. But... Nope! I got in and the dolphin sightings and swimming with them was an unbelievable time. Loved it, loved it, loved it! Did I say, loved it! You don't have to be a great... More

I could not have asked for a better dolphin experience than the one with water planet. I was able to swim with multiple pods of dolphins as well as snorkel around a ship wreck. The captain was knowledgeable about the area and sea life. He was also willing to change up the destinations based on our wants and needs. I... More

Had the experience of a lifetime! Swam with a large pod of dolphins and made many amazing memories and photos. Checked out a really cool underwater ship wreck and found many sand dollars and other keepsakes in the wreckage. Was a perfect way to end our vacation :)

We had a great experience snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins. Water Planet worked hard to make sure we had plenty of time swimming with the dolphins. You will be very pleased with Water Planet.

This was the best money I've spent in a long time, and yes, we swam with the dolphins. Our captain and your guide was Nick. He was both knowledgable and funny. Get ready to truly swim as you are cut loose in the Gulf of Mexico and in search of a close up view of a pod of wild dolphins.... More

Wow! What a fabulous day! Captain Roseann was excellent. We went to the secluded end of Shell Island and hooked up with a large pod of dolphins - at least 12 and got to swim with them over and over again. Blue skies and calm water provided perfect dolphin swimming conditions. Truly phenomenal experience and the kids loved it. Best... More
