Dolphin watch with new friends

Steve and the Dreamland crew offer much more than a boat trip. Story telling, education and insperation. Great bang for your buck! I'd recommend any day to all of us kids at heart.

We just had the greatest jetski trip with Dreamlander Tours and Capt. Mitch. Att arrival we got a few start up instructions from our contact Steve. We appreciated the focus on safety. After an easy start up we started to move out to open sea, where I got into trouble with the speed/stearing. Capt. Mitch gave instructions and finally we... More

Easy to find on the corner of Clearwater harbour. Well priced, friendly hour trip and were lucky enough to have a few minutes with jumping dolphins.

We worked with Steve, the owner, on three days of tours. This is a special they have on their website, but we tweaked it a bit. The three things we did, each on a different day: 1. Everglades tour. Van picked us up at our condo in Marco Island, and Canty (the driver) was great. Good background on Marco Island... More

The trip began at Goodland Boat Park, where we met the owner and other passengers. The boat followed the marked channel out to the Gulf, with frequent pauses to watch herons, spoonbills, Pelicans and playful dolphins getting their supper. Our guide, Captain Kyle, provided explanations for their behaviours and habits, and encouraged the dolphins to wake surf. We then cruised... More

We spent a day with Dreamlander tours- it was awesome, relaxing and beautiful. Lots of dolphin sightings, beautiful shells were found on a beautiful sandy beach of a remote island. We had a great day - our children are 12 and 16 and they loved it too! Thanks so much Dreamlander Tours!

Our family went on the Dolphin and Shelling tour, best tour have have taken. It only took 5 mintues into the tour to see the dolphins feeding in the swallow water and we even saw a couple baby dolphins. The Shelling island was full of sand dollars and other great shells. Will definitely be back next trip to Marco.

Saw many dolphins 'surfing' behind the boat. Nice small group. Captain Kyle was very good and Steven very friendly. Would definitely recommend such a special experience.

I was apprehensive as this was my first wave runner experience but Steven was most hospitable, kind and patient in answering all my questions and easing my mind. Our guide was Brandon who also took his time in explaining how to operate the machine, making sure I felt comfortable before heading out on the water. Amazing time with lots of... More

I knew this tour was going to special when the owner "God Blessed me" before I got off the phone with him. What a wonderful, warm, loving company.
