We started with some rain but our 'captain' took us immediately to a better region without rain where we saw several Dolphins. We were 6 on the boat and the captain took his time to give us extra information about the animals. Afterwords we went snorkling together with the captain. He was a real good guide. Afterwards we found another... More

We had a wonderful 4 hour cruise with CAPT Rob aboard the Pattie C for my husband, myself, and 3 out-of- town guests who were visiting our home in Key West for a family reunion. We did find dolphins and also had a chance to snorkel in the area of a sponge garden. Our captain was very patient and kind... More

While on a second honeymoon vacation in Key West, we headed out on the Dolphin Watch & Snorkel Tour - perfect experience. We booked with Honest Eco because of the limit to 6 people on the boat with the captain. Captain Rob educated us on the dolphins and the surrounding area. He took us to a spot for snorkeling that...

Captain Evan took us out today to go dolphin spotting and snorkeling. It was amazing. Evan really knows these waters and we found dolphins in no time at all. Evan explained a little about their habitat en their behavior, which was really interesting. During snorkeling he found ( besides numerous fish) a sea turtle and some crabs. My family and... More

Visited July 2016 and I can only say how amazing this was, Captain Rob made such an effort to show us dolphins sleeping, playing and hunting. We even seen some baby dolphins :-) One of our party was not keen to move around the boat and has a fear of water, he went above and beyond to include this member.... More

We went out with Captain Billy. The experience was amazing, we saw many dolphins which was awesome but in many ways the snorkelling was even better. Captain Billy reassured my rather nervous husband and at the same time realised that my teenage kids were very confident swimmers. He took time to find fish, dive to conch, sponges etc and most...

We just got back from this trip and had the most amazing time. Loved the fact that it was only for up to 6 people and captain Billy looked after us brilliantly and was very knowledgeable. We saw lots of dolphins and a loggerhead turtle. Billy led us on the snorkelling and we saw huge sting rays. Can't recommend this... More

We had a great marine trip! There was everything we could wish: wonderful views and amazing nature, watching the Dolphins playing around, snorkeling with a lot of color fishes and big stingrays. We liked cozy small boat. Many thanks to captain Rob for very interesting information and stories, and friendly atmosphere! It's great to have not too much people on... More
