We booked the Key West Dolphin Watch and Snorkel Cruise tour not certain what to expect as it was our first visit to Key West. We were not disappointed, and it exceeded any, and all our expectations. I would recommend this excursion to other travelers without hesitation. Captain Willie and First Mate Alivia (sp?) were outstanding. Both were informative but also entertaining during the entire trip, which made for a very enjoyable time. They were also very accommodating to the novices to snorkeling amongst the passengers.

Captain Willie’s experience came through as we were able to view multiple dolphin pods, including one that had a newly born calf that was three to four weeks old. But the crew was also attentive to the dolphins and their space as well, not getting overly close, and paying attention of the dolphins’ reactions to the boat. We were also able to see a large sea turtle during the snorkeling time, who was within a few feet of people in the water, giving everyone quite a show. Alivia even got in the water and stayed to help ease some anxiety with the novice snorkelers.

We had booked a later in the afternoon trip, and the sunset on the way back was a beautiful way to end a relaxing, informative, and fun day on the water. I would highly recommend this to others.

Hannah and Anna are the dream team! I seriously cannot praise them enough! It was the last day of our trip and conditions were rough and rainy, but we were willing to go if the boat was going. We were made aware that we could reschedule or cancel for a full refund. They were very detailed in stating that due to the conditions the dolphins may not be seen and water for snorkeling would be very choppy. They were also very detailed in stating that if the boat went out and the trip was amended or cut short there is no partial refund.
We went out on the boat and had a wonderful time despite the rough water and rain! They were awesome with our kids answering all their questions about the boat, wildlife, and water.

We visited Key West shortly after the COVID-19 reopening and Fury Water Adventures was recommended to us by our hotel concierge. He specifically recommend them to our group, which included two children (8 and 13), for value and their reputation for safety. We were not disappointed!
Captain Jim and Hannah were friendly and accommodating for the entirety of the trip. It didn't take long to spot the dolphins and Captain Jim was very patient giving us plenty of time to hang out and watch the dolphins. We saw between 15 and 20 dolphins that came right up to the boat and interacted with us playfully. Captain Jim share loads of facts about the dolphins, their diets, their habitat, threats and habits.
Hannah took over when it was time to snorkel and lead us confidently through the preparations before entering the water. She kept a close watch to ensure the safety of everyone while in the water. The sponge garden that we visited was unique and a different especially for those of us who have snorkeled on reefs before.
The cherry on top was stopping just outside the marina to watch the sunset. It was amazing just like our trip with Captain Jim and Hannah. We highly recommend this excursion while in Key West.

I am rating this tour a one o my because I do not have the option to enter zero. Booked trip am Saturday on a Thursday with the information there was a possibility it could be canceled if not enough people booked. This was perfectly understandable and reasonable to us so we went through with the booking. On Friday evening we checked our email for any information on cancellation and we happy to see that there wasn’t any. We set our alarm (yes on vacation and still set an alarm to make sure we were up on time and at dock because it was a 30 minute walk to pier or $16 way over priced uber ride. We got up with the alarm and again checked phone and email there was nothing so we got on our way. We made made it to check in only to find out they were just trying to contact us to let us know it was canceled. Are you kidding me, where is the thought the customer service?!?! Oh sorry you wasted your time here’s a refund that will take 4 days to be processed. This is in acceptable and the only reason people are still using this service is because there really isn’t much of an option if you want to do this sort of trip.

Hi Coastal68506, We appreciate you taking the time to review your experience with Fury and regret that you did not have a pleasant one. We never, ever wish to cancel a trip and take the decision to do so quite heavily before calling it. We are still navigating a lot of new procedure in these new and uncertain times. With many restrictions placed on travel and with a second order of shutdowns in Florida this past week, we are doing our best to safely offer our trips with the hope we will have guest participation. If we do not have a certain number of guests, it is not feasible for our boats to go out, especially as we also attempt to minimize impact on our ecological environment. Thousands of guests every year choose to come spend their day with us because we do offer an amazing, five- star all the way day on the water. We appreciate your patience as, along with many other local businesses, we try to navigate this new world! We hope you were able to reschedule for a later departure and that you did ultimately enjoy your day on the water with us!

Stevie and Olivia were so awesome. We went out at 9am, and even when we had some boat issues, they delivered! They’re a great captain and first mate combo. Snorkeling was fun, the water was beautiful. We thought we might not get to see dolphins but 10 mins before we arrived back at the marina Stevie delivered! 4 female bottlenose came to greet the boat! This was cheaper than dry Tortugas (which was sold out) and the 3hrs was plenty to still enjoy the rest of the day! Please make sure you bring cash to tip the tour guides!

Amazing excursion! Captain Steve and Colbie headed our sunset dolphin watch and snorkel tour. One of the best excursions I’ve enjoyed on vacation. They were very knowledgeable about local marine life and the waters they explore. This cruise is family friendly so bring the whole family!
The dolphins were breathtaking as we found a few males that were showing off for some females. Throughout the entire cruise we saw dolphins, no shortage of opportunities to take pictures.
The snorkel experience was great although I wish we had been able to go snorkeling earlier in the day for the best visibility with the sun directly above us but then we would have missed the greatest sunset I’ve ever witnessed.

While snorkeling, we saw so many barracuda and I believe I saw a huge tarpon that startled me as it swam directly below me like it didn’t have a care in the world but the absolute best was the manatee that swam in front of me, definitely the highlight!

Don’t bother bringing anything to drink as you are packing for this excursion.. they provide it all. Water, sodas and for the adults - variety of beers (Key Lime Lager was a hit), wine and mimosas to enjoy with that sunset.

Overall a wonderful experience that my family and I shared. Highly recommend this tour and whether you have 0 snorkel experience or are seasoned, plenty to see here in Key West!

We did this tour mainly because we wanted to go snorkeling but wow we were so delighted with this. The tour guides were fantastic and very informative and fun. I am so sorry but I only remember Penny!! it was her first day!!
Firstly was the dolphin watching and that was spectacular and they were also very respectful of the dolphins. But we got to see loads and these funny little ballet fish they kinda skim across the top of the water by their tails!! amazing.
Nextly we continued on a bit to the reef to do the snorkeling. They advised us on all the correct protocol etc and let us off into the water - I was snorkeling at around 6/6:30 in the evening and it was soooo lovely. saw so many fish etc I was enjoying myself too much however when I eventually looked up I was the only one still in the water!!! When I got back onto the boat the alcohol was cracked open and they were very generous with wine, beer and champagne and we got to see the most glorious sunset on the way back in! Couldn't have been better!!

Capt. Stevie and Rachel were great! Had a very diverse group on our trip and they just rolled with it all. Very friendly and informative. The weather didn't cooperate and it was very chilly with no sun. We all made the best of it and Capt and Rachel gave up there warm clothing to a few kids that were pretty cold. The water wasnt exactly warm but they have wetsuits available on board to rent for $10. That was great because it made the experience a bit more enjoyable. Would have been to cold without them. Saw a few dolphins before and after snorkeling and they do a great job of locating and working woth other boats to find them. Wasn't super impressed with the snorkeling but that's not the fault of the company. Just wasn't a lot to see. It was overall a fun experience and at least we can say we did it!

I went on the dolphin watch tour with my wife and two kids (11 and 7) and it was one of the best days of our key west vacation! My kids love dolphins and all marine life and we were all so impressed that the captain and mate stressed the importance of respecting the dolphins and just observing them doing what they would naturally do. When left to their own devices, the dolphins actually put on quite a show! they were jumping out of the water, chasing bait fish, and they even swam up to the boat and we were able to get a close look at them. It was really special. The snorkeling was also incredible. The water was shallow which was great for my wife who isn't so confident in the water and we saw tons of different fish, sponges, corals, and lobsters. Captain Stevie was hilarious and first mate Olivia was very attentive and made us feel safe in the water and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the whole tour. After snorkeling she even served us unlimited mimosas! I would highly recommend this tour and make sure you ask for Stevie and Olivia! We will definitely be back!

I originally made a reservation for the morning snorkel, but while we were on the way to Key West from Miami, we encountered several accidents and one of my passengers became nauseous. Due to this we were not going to arrive on time for the reservation as they want you to check in 30 mins early. I called Fury and left a message and they called me back and said they would change my reservation to a later time the same day. Once we got on the boat, Captain Stevie and his first mate were excellent. They were both very informative, and helpful as this was the first time snorkeling or on a boat for some of our party. There were many kids on our tour and the crew was very helpful to make sure we were comfortable in the water, with the first mate jumping in at one point to help a young boy who was beginning to panic. This tour was definitely worth the money, they provide water and soft drinks, and on the way back from snorkeling beer and wine. We got to see plenty of dolphins and the snorkeling spot was great. Water was very clear as we saw plenty of smaller fish, barracudas, and even a sea turtle. We finished it off with a beautiful view of the sunset while on the way back. Overall very satisfied with my experience with Fury. I would book them again.
