The girl who checked us in was a little cold but the staff on the boat was very friendly and determined to find as many dolphins as possible. We were able to see nine include a month old baby one! I would definitely recommend this tour.

Went out with Capt John and Claudia on August 1st. He made sure we found multiple groups of dolphins. Later in the cruise he spotted a pair of female dolphins with a new born baby. We follow them for about 25 minutes. It was tough to get pictures of the baby since it would only pop up for a few... More

We were fortunate that day we had beautiful weather and we got to see a baby dolphin. The captain also gives us a little tour and showed us some areas of history,... More

So much on this dolphin quest cruise. The captain was fantastic and provided so much information. Out for about 2 hours and well worth the money. We did see dolphins, so much scenery, and good time for all. We will do this again.

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
