Booked this trip the day before just because we fancied doing something different... Best decision we made all holiday. Captain Rob was brilliant and informative... Getting up close to wild dolphins was amazing... And the snorkeling (a first for me) was fantastic... If you only do one thing on your trip to key West... It has to be this

Our two friends, my husband and I booked the Dolphin Watch with Captain Billy last week. We are spending the month in Key West and so we have done many activities, but Captain Billy and his company Honest Key West are worthy of the highest praise. From the minute we stepped on the boat (which only takes six), he made... More

Our time with Captain Rob on this morning excursion could not have been any better! When we first went out Rob found some dolphins for us that were hunting. We watched them for awhile and then he suggested we do our snorkeling. The water was refreshing and he showed us some sea creatures. When we were finished with our snorkeling... More

Was my greatest dolphin/snorkeling event till today. Rob did a great job, and we saw lots of dolphins! After a great snorkeling trip, we received some fresh cutted fruits. :) I recommend this to everyone!

Quite simply, one of the best days of our lives. We will never forget watching dolphins play in the wild, but the absolute apex of the trip was swimming with (possibly stalking) a Hawksbill Turtle. Capt Rob was genuine, absolutely lovely and solicitous. He ensured this was such such memorable trip; helping us in every way and informing us at... More

I was really excited to go on this trip to see dolphins and snorkel. Well the snorkeling was good but we didn't see 1 dolphin. Oh if you count a fin from 100 yards away then I guess I did. The 2 girls that took us out were nice and informative but maybe didn't know exactly where to go to... More

I went by myself and had an absolutely amazing time! I really enjoyed that the group was so small - six person maximum. Our guide, Rob, was so professional and nice. When we went snorkeling he actually got in with us and showed us some things - shells, sponges, lobster, and even a nurse shark. The dolphins were absolutely incredible,... More

Went on dolphin watch and snorkeling tour 7/19/16 with teenage daughter. Captain Billy took us to multiple areas to see numerous Dolphins in their natural habitat. Also to a great snorkeling spot, saw numerous fish, lobster, baby sea turtle. Great day on a nice boat with room to walk around. They limit passengers to 6 so not overcrowded at all.... More

We found Honest Eco through web searches and selected it because of the many positive reviews, We were not disappointed. This was our first time in the Keys and our first time snorkling. Captain Rob was both very friendly and very knowledgeable. He worked hard to ensure that we had an excellent experience. On our excursion, we saw lots of... More

My husband and I are in our early 50's. We both swim and love boats. However, I had never snorkeled before so I was hesitant to book this excursion. Captain Rob put me right at ease. He clearly had safety as well as respect for the environment as top priorities. He explained the snorkeling equipment and process clearly. He was... More
