I have done this adventure quite a few times with this company - but this time was very disappointing. I'll start with the GOOD - we were running a bit behind and were pleased when they were still in the harbor when we arrived. There was one group behind us that they also waited for. NOT SO GOOD - we did see quite a few dolphins - which was nice. But the captain seemed less than enthusiastic about where we went and our group felt he wasn't really trying to find the manatees. The kids were very disappointed. We know there is no promise of seeing them every time! But he almost seemed bored. I have LOVED the captains and guides we've had in the past. We always had so much fun and I've told people frequently about DolFun tours and recommended that they do a tour. We did not have this same experience this time. And I won't be suggesting this again to my friends. BAD - the "captain" made a number of brash comments throughout the ride that made at least a few of us uncomfortable (I can't speak for the whole boat.) He knew the area and gave us some facts. Much of it was about himself and the houses he's built. We felt that perhaps those who've had houses built by him wouldn't want him sharing their vocations and details about how much their homes cost. I know I wouldn't. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy this experience nearly as much as we had expected.

I have never seen so many dolphins at one time! They were swimming and jumping all around the boat. It was a great spot and a beautiful day. The captain was excellent. Very patient (as we had 19 of us!) and knowledgeable. Booking was easy and it was easy to find. We saw a manatee, sting rays, birds, and many dolphins. I would highly recommend. For the price, it was the best time we had on our vacation!

Reserving online was easy, just as following the directions to the dock for boarding and getting underway. The boat was clean, comfortable, roomy, and had a perfect cover to keep you in the shade. The captain knew the area very well and immediately took us to see dolphin. While we first cruised in the open waters, we then cruised the Banana River and saw many beautiful homes. It was in this area he took us to view a mother and baby dolphin, chasing fish in a small area for about 15 minutes. That was fun because there was a pelican that basically would jump on the dolphins back to get eh fish they were chasing. Our day had very calm waters and moderate temperatures, so it was very enjoyable. It was a great little adventure for 100 minutes in the morning, which left the entire rest of the day and evening for other activities. Well done!

We had such a great experience, the captain was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The captain knew the area and how to find the dolphins then pointed them out.

I went through the website and it says 10 to 12 when I was scheduled. Then I went there and he said there was a private party and to come back at 12:15. So how do you get on the boat?
