Although we were unable to actually swim with the Dolphins, with Captain Paul’s expertise we continually managed to find Dolphins swimming which was amazing enough.

We had Captain Billy at the helm.. Knowledgeable guide to the area and a jack of all trades! Made sure that we were able to swim with dolphins and dropped us at a few places to snorkel! Would recommend 100%

Probably should have went with a larger group and bigger boat. We didn’t get to spend much time with dolphins because the captain kept moving the boat. Didn’t seem very experienced in dealing with families with small children. There was basically nothing to see in...More
