When visiting Key West try your very best to secure a reservation with Captain Gary. It will be one of the highlights of your trip. Capt. Gary is: friendly, funny, knowledgeable, safe, experienced, wonderful and a joy to go out on the water with. He will explain every detail about the equipment, snorkeling and the surrounding beauty of the ocean,... More

Had a wonderful sunset/sandbar cruise with dolphin safaris while staying in Key West. Capt. Adam and his first mate Dillon were fantastic, energetic and informative as we set out on our adventure. We got to see a huge pod of dolphins including a mother and baby (so cool) not long into boat ride. The sandbar was amazing and were able... More

We are now coming back to Captain Gary for over 9 years and I still think this is the greatest excursion. This year there was 13 of us and the experience gets better every year. Captain Gary has never let us down on every trip we have seen dolphins and snorkeling gets better every year! The sunset at the sandbar... More

A misunderstanding about the dolphins--we thought we would swim them. Didn't realize that wasn't possible in Key West. But the misunderstanding came from an outside booking company. Tricia was our "guide" and was great. We saw a group of 6 dolphins just lazing along, which was really fun. Snorkeling was great and Tricia got in with us to show us... More

With so many boat excursion choices in Key West it's hard to know online if you've made a good one. After doing A LOT of research, and calling several ones, we decided on Dolphin Safari, and we are SO glad we did. Capt. Gary runs a first-class operation and is so friendly and thoughtful of your every needs. He is... More

We booked online and received confirmation right away. We had to change to a sunset cruise but that worked out better as it was cooler. Adam was our guide and he was great. We saw plenty of dolphin and snorkeling was awesome!

We booked the dolphin safari tour very spontaneous on the website. It was s great morning with Gary and we enjoyed the three hours on the boat. Fair price.

We traveled out with Captain Kenny and had a blast! We saw a bunch of dolphins especially in the area called Dolphins Playground. Was awesome. There were only 6 of us on the boat, so it was very friendly and personal. The snorkeling was amazing- the reef and lots colorful fish. Definately recommend this experience with Dolphin Safari when in... More

My wife and I were treated to a fun adventure aboard one of the Dolphin Safari boats with our captain, Richard on their 12:30p departure on a Friday afternoon. Our boat included another family of 3. We arrived about 20 minutes before scheduled departure, and were amazed to find a mother and child manatee hanging out around the docks! Very... More

Our family of 4, including 2 daughters age 12 & 16, did the 4:30 - Sunset trip on Aug 4th with Capt. Adam and his first mate Dylan (his 9 y/o son). I can't describe the experience any other way than "perfect". Our trip started with a pleasant ride out to an area where more than a dozen dolphins were... More
