We have been on this excursion 3 years in a row and it has been amazing every time. We have not been disappointed. This is an eco friendly tour, as it is illegal to feed the dolphins nothing is used to attract or find the dolphins. Maximum occupants on the boat is approx. 20. Owner/Operator is fantastic and very friendly.... More

Contrary to the other naysayers in the other reviews, we had an excellent experience. Captain Mark does an OUTSTANDING job of making sure you are safe on his boat, and secondly that you actually find and see dolphins close up. Additionally, the Osprey is a VERY safe vessel, and rides super smooth, unlike what some others may think. We TOTALLY... More

Captain Mark was great. We enjoyed the boat ride out to see Dolphins. The ride was very smooth and we saw tons of Dolphins. I did sit on the rubber part of the boat and had to move inside because I was getting sprayed with water after we reached a high speed. Mark knew everything about Dolphins. Very knowledgable. We...

We saw plenty of Dolphins. The only concern I had was that the boat you go out on is like a coast guard Skiff it a Nay seal style boat. You feel every wave you hit. The boat goes way out into ocean so be prepared for a bumpy, hard ride. We were not told of the hard ride condition,... More

Our family age ranged from 9 to 66. First the boat: very seaworthy with a smooth ride in some choppy ocean. Got a little spray but very comfortable. The staff was great and very knowledgeable and had us on the dolphins in no time. At least a hundred sightings. Just the right length of time and a great introduction to... More

The trip itself was awesome. Very nice boat ride out into the ocean, and saw lots of dolphins. My only issue was with the staff members.

The staff were very nice, clean boat, nice ride, NO Dolphins seen. I know they are wild animals and there is a risk; however, my issue is that Capt Mark had set us up in the first minutes of the ride that we were likely not to see them due to wind and water conditions. Also set us up that... More

My family, including 15 yr old and 18 yr old, really enjoyed the dolphin tour. We saw lots of dolphins! The boat ride was comfortable. Make sure to wear sunscreen! No restroom on boat. Great experience!
