This was our second visit with the 2-boat fleet. Captain Amy was energetic on our three hour cruise. We not only saw many dolphins, but also snorkeled in a great location. The snorkel equipment was high quality adding to the experience. Perfect for 5-6 people.

Okay 3 hour trip in Key West south. Captain Jim told us that it would be 80% chance to see Dolphins, maybe they were scared at our trip since they never showed up. Great snorkling and Great management from the Fury staff.

I personally wouldn’t recommend it. It’s kind of a small boat so somewhat rough with the waves. Not smooth like on a larger boat.
