Our family had an awesome time! Kieu was super friendly and very helpful booking our reservation. Prior to our visit, she calmed my concerns about bringing our 3 month old along for the Dolphin & Friends boat tour (it was completely safe as long as she wore an infant life vest which they provided). Captain Casey expertly cruised us around... More

Had a terrific day out on the water - our captain really knew where to go to not only find tons of dolphins but to entice them to follow our wake and put on a show! Also got some interesting history on the general area and nearby sights.

After reading the great reviews on trip advisor I knew this was the place to book my dolphin spotting trip with the family. What a great decision that turned out to be. What was already a brilliant time spent on the beautiful Marco island just went up a level. From calling to make my reservation when the very helpful Q... More

Wow!! What a great afternoon we had on the Dreamlander dolphin tour! Our group of 6 included a child, a teenager, a child with autism/disabilities, and my elderly father -- and we ALL had a great trip! The tour staff could not have been more accommodating of the folks in our group who needed assistance getting on and off the... More

Met the Chanty as our guide and Carl as the driver of the Air Boat. Both were very experienced with the Everglades and the environment. Carl & Chanty were both good ole southern boys even though Chanty was from New Jersey. The tour was very concise

This is my second adventure with Dreamlander Tours and once again it surpassed my expectations. I was pleased that my 6 month old was welcomed on the boat tour as others would not allow her. Upon arrival were excitedly greeted by the owners Steve & Kieu (pronounced Q), who answered all of our questions and introduced us to Cpt. Tyler.... More

My sister, niece, mom and I were fortunate enough to get an early (10am) dolphin tour. Captain Tyler was wonderful. He truly enjoyed showing us the area, knowledgeable, and went over and above to give us a great experience. We even got to see a hammerhead shark!!! An amazing tour with beautiful views. Thank you so much!!

What a great operation ! Captain Kyle was awesome! We went on the Dolphin 2 hour tour with our family of 5. This is an activity which can be enjoyed by young and old and even the in between (children 24, 21 and 19). We all LOVED IT! Captain Kyle made sure we saw lots of dolphins. The Dolphins jumped...

We loved this tour. Not only was Captain Joe knowledgable and friendly, but so were the owners who personally greet you. The boat we had was beautiful, comfortable and clean. We even had the boat to ourselves as they do not take more then 6 at a time. This memory will last a lifetime and we will be back!! Highly... More
