Two sailings both leaving at the same time from the same dock...both operated by the same folks. With two boats to leave at 6:00 it did not work. Then our cruise was overloaded by 12 folks somehow? The captain said they would not sail till 12 folks got off, in a very aggravated voice. A group of 12 did leave... More

Took the family on the Dolphin Quest tour. Spent some time in the Gulf, but mostly in the Bay, which was nice. Dolphins were scarce, didnt seem interested in playing, but the Captain did all he could to put us in position to see them. The tour was the highlight of the afternoon. The Captain and Crew did a great... More

We saw Dolphins within the first 30minutes and had no issues seeing a hurd! We took my son who is 2 and he... More

Great way to spend a few hours. WE saw so many dolphins and the crew was so exciting that it excited the whole tour. A bit pricey but it was so much fun.

One of my top 5 favorite things of the whole trip. The captain was very knowledgeable and personable. The cost is affordable and you definitely get your money's worth.

I looked at a lot of Dolphin excursions and decided to go with Dolphin Quest because it was the most cost efficient. Adult ticket $19.50 and kids 2-20 $15.00, you cannot find a better price anywhere. Captain John and Joe were awesome. We learned about the birds in the area and Captain John told us many facts about dolphins. We... More
