Manager, Cindy, spent endless hours trying to accomodate a special request for two college students, for me. This request was for a sunset cruise. She called me at least three times over a two day period, finalizing the request the next day. Her personal attention to the details, was amazing. Cindy is responsible for making this surprise birthday present, happen.!!!... More

We had a great time! Had a storm the night before and snorkeling was hazing but gave it a try anyway. The crew was interactive and informative. Went out of their way to show us the area. Would do it again.

Sailing around Boca Ciega Bay looking for dolphins was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. We found dolphins and enjoyed watching them. On the return trip to the dock we spotted some manatees as well. Highly recommend this excellent experience on the water.

I love going sailing on one of the Dolphin Landings boats. I've gone at least a dozen times over the years and always see dolphins. The staff is very professional. The views are beautiful and I love watching the dolphins (sometimes they're very playful).

We went on the 9:30 am cruise. Our family (age 9 to adult) happened to be the only ones on the sailboat. The crew was friendly and informative. We saw lots of dolphins!

We wanted to get out onto the water and decided to try the dolphin cruise. We did the mid-day sail and it was wonderful! We enjoyed it so much we did the sunset cruise the next evening. To our delight, we saw more dolphins in the evening. The sunset, the dolphins, and the stars at the end of the evening... More

This was one of our favorite things we did while on vacation! We Saw many dolphins and beautiful views. The staff was wonderful! They were friendly and informative. The captain also gave all the children a chance to "drive" the boat around. We will definitely be back on our next trip to the area.

First time at St. Pete's beach and just had to take a dolphin cruise with my wife and seven year old daughter. The ship was a beauty: a 40-foot plus sail boat with an accomplished crew. It was nice cruising the bay without the noise of a loud engine ringing in our ears. The crew (led by Captain Ben and... More
