BEST SUNSET CRUISE I HAVE EVER BEEN ON

I have been on a few sunset cruises throughout Florida and Mexico. This puts them all to shame. The Capt. Clint and staff Suzie were wonderful, but not obtrusive. They let the... read more

I have been on a few sunset cruises throughout Florida and Mexico. This puts them all to shame. The Capt. Clint and staff Suzie were wonderful, but not obtrusive. They let the beauty of the experience speak for itself. They know the area very well- and were able to find schools of dolphins for us to gasp at upon our... More

My partner and I went on the 12pm boat ride, with this being one of the main things we wanted to do whilst travelling around Florida. It did not disappoint. Captain Ben and crew member Dawn were very welcoming and as we sailed, they gave us lots of information on the area. It took a while to discover some dolphins,... More

Where to start...We had an amazing time on this trip. I grew up in Washington state and love to sail, so when I moved to the Arizona desert 12 years ago I missed it dearly. I would have loved this trip for the sailing alone, but that wasn't all we got to see and do. We started out enjoying the... More

After several decades of seeing the dock tucked behind the Publix shopping center, I took the dolphin watch with the family on the Fantasea. Even if we hadn't seen 1 dolphin, it is still a very pleasant afternoon on a boat. In retrospect, I think there would have been a better chance of seeing more dolphins if we had taken... More

My husband and I went on an afternoon dolphin watch sail. Even if we hadn't seen any dolphin (which we did thanks to the tenacity of the captain and crew) the sail would have been worth it. The crew was awesome at answering questions and making sure we had everything we need on the sail. We are definitely coming back... More

We went on the dolphin tour on Fantasea. Our group consisted of myself, my husband, a friend and her two young children. Everyone had a great time. We saw several Dolphins, including one who was repeatedly jumping out of the water and several jumping into the waves of another boat. We also saw a string ray. Captain Ben and Jim... More

We were in St Pete beach over the last few rainy days with our grandsons. Between storms we thought we'd try the dolphin cruise. When we arrived to buy our tickets, Capt Ben said he would take us out however because of the weather coming in the waters could be rough, he wanted us to have a good time and... More

We stayed in St. Pete Beach during the (so far) 19 days of rain. We planned events around the rain and made a sunset cruise fit into our itinerary. The ride was great! They have coolers for the drinks you bring, a covered area to sit and plenty of room around the boat to move around. The captain and crew... More

First, thank you to Cindy for her cheerfulness and great personality. She helped us deal with the unpredictable weather as of late. After a couple of cancellations due to storms, we finally made it out to sea the next day. What a pleasant time on the Fantasea. Amazing to think that we were on a ship that sailed to Europe...

Thank you for sailing with us! Yes, the last week or so has been very rainy (even by Florida standards) and we appreciate your flexibility. Thanks for the review and the very kind words for Cyndy, Captain Randall and Crewman Jackson! We think they're really special too! More
