Well, we did it, but really feel the price was too high when considering what's included. Thankful it was a beautiful, sunny day with no rain issues. We saw a few dolphins, gathered a few shells, dove for a few sand dollars, and the water was dirty looking (the crew said it was due to all of the rain over... More

The captain and his first mate are very welcoming and friendly. The ride to the island for shelling and snorkelling was great as we has a great many dolphins swim in our boats wake! The downside was that the island part is not great. Only about an hour and a bit on the island and the shelling and snorkelling are... More

This was SO not worth even a fraction of what we paid. It was a 2 hr boat ride with very minimal dolphin sightings. We got belittled as a group for not being loud enough to keep the Dolphins playing in the wake. So basically the lack of Dolphins was our fault. We got to Egmont Key and parked on... More

Unfortunately there was a fire on Egmont Key 2 days before our trip so we were not allowed on the island (we were told this before leaving which was nice) it meant more snorkeling time in the water. Honestly I was a little skeptical about this after reading the reviews, however we decided to give it a try. The boat... More

This was a great end to our girls trip here in Florida! Both captains were great and so accommodating; especially when it came to snorkeling. They were very patient and helpful for those who were non-swimmers and/or hesitant about getting into the water. Thank you both for an excellent experience :) I would recommend it to anyone!!

First of all, there's no guarantee that you will see dolphins-- and the captain didn't seem too concerned with making sure we slowed down or sped up to see them. The price is $40 per adult and that doesn't include drinks or sandwiches (something that other places include for less money.) We went with 7 adults and an infant. The... More

My husband and I booked a last minute tour with this company during a free afternoon over the phone. The person we spoke with was fairly helpful and even called to check on us because we were driving from over an hour away. We boarded the boat, received instructions, and headed for Egmont Key. We did see dolphins on the... More

You get what you pay for. 40$ is pretty cheap for two people and the boat crew so very friendly. We got to see dolphins and it was awesome. The snorkeling was poor because the water was dirty and we didn't get to see anything really. You should really look for a better place to snorkel.
