Booked weeks in advance for a party of 9...then the rains came every day leading up to this evening and thankfully, no rain. Allowed to BYOB as well as food, which we did and several other parties did as well. Friendly crew (walked around taking pictures, sharing information, etc...) It was a hot night but the water breeze was wonderful!... More

As a resident of St. Augustine, I recommend Dolphin Water Tours as the best water tour of our beautiful city. Excellent value. When friends visit, we take a relaxing sunset tour. Great crew. Location is easy to find and plenty of parking, unlike downtown.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic evening on our sunset dolphin cruise. We traveled everywhere! We started in the Vilano Beach port, then traveled under the Vilano Beach bridge, all the way through the heart of St. Augustine, including going under the bridge of lions (gorgeous). We didn't see dolphins at first, but honestly, we were just so taken... More

For a great view of St Augustine from the water, a cool breeze after a hot day and dolphin sightings, this was a treat!

My family and I went on a Dolphin Safari Cruise while on vacation in July. We struck out finding dolphins or other sea life but we still really enjoyed our cruise. It was obvious that our captain and his partner were trying hard to spot something and looked disappointed when they didn't (can't be good for business). We enjoyed seeing... More

Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins on our sunset cruise. They had seen many throughout the week, even sea turtles and a manatee, we were told! However, even though the dolphins were absent, it was a beautiful evening on the boat. Seeing the city from the water was beautiful and the sunset was gorgeous. We also got a good... More

Expected to go out into open water and see a lot of dolphins ....instead we got a bunch of sight seeing and St.Augustine history from the harbor. Didn't see any Dolphins or other sea life, though not the fault of the crew. Captain and tour guide were funny, kind and informative. The tour was pleasurable jut not what we expected.

I would use a Groupon or their discount for trip. We did sunset cruise. Directions are not the best and you don't get a human on the phone when lost! Crew was very pleasant but for the price could serve guests refreshments.

The ride lasted longer than 1.5 hours. We did see a dolphin pod, turtle and shark. The additional information on the city and its landmarks was interesting as well. I would recommend this tour, with a Groupon it is affordable.
