Had a great time. Matt and Greg were our guide and driver. Nice time sightseeing then we saw the dolphins. Many, many of them. Have your iPhone or camera ready. Would do tour again. And the boat has a cover so you don't need a hat.

Seven of us wanted to take Dolphin Quest's excursion. Their website said to call ahead to reserve. So we tried, about 20 times throughout the day, but the phone only went to voice mail. Never a return call. Finally we swung by, and were directed to a small gift shop. When I commented that we'd been leaving messages all day,... More

We had fantastic time chasing the dolphins. The crew were excellent, the captain and first mate were very informed about the area. Good times were had by all. We would do the tour again.

We opted for the 4pm sailing as thought it would be a good time to go dolphin spotting. We set off and headed under the bridge to see if there was any activity in the Gulf - there wasn't so headed back to the harbour area after less than 10 minutes. We travelled for over an hour before spotting a... More

John and Claudia were perfect hosts on our 90 minute cruise. It didn't take long to find Dolphins, actually just a few hundred yards from the dock. Lots of information and some great close ups. After 30-45 minutes or more following the dolphins, John took us on an informative tour with great information about the history of the area and... More

We had a beautiful day on the water. A group of dolphins were right near the dock so we watched them for a while. There were more as we headed out! The tour of famous homes was interesting also. We had a great time!

If you are in the area, and can get a groupon, this boat ride is worth every penny!! We saw a lot of dolphins, and also got a nice tour of the area, I loved every second of it!!

We loved our tour on dolphin quest! I would for sure do it again and they had a groupon which made it really affordable! We saw a lot of dolphins and learned a lot about the area and houses around Johns Pass!

Gorgeous day for watching dolphins in natural habitat. The pontoon type boat was stable and comfortable padded bench seating plentiful. The captain and mate were friendly and informative. We saw dolphins and some island dwelling birds. The 1 1/2 hour excursion left on time at noon. Drinks are available at fair market prices but limited selection on board. No restroom... More

Enjoy watching dolphins swim around your boat. Captain very friendly, fun and entertaining. Fun for adults and children. We were also given a tour of the bay, the local points of interest and entertaining trivia! Would definitely recommend this!
