Jay and Chloe were great so friendly and nice. We got to see lots of dolphins and got up close to them! My husband got so close to them at one point he was swimming with them. Water was beautiful that day!

Really interesting to connect our desire with the respect of wildlife. Seing the dolphins swimming near you, above you. Professionnal organization, don't change anything.

Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He paid close attention to our individual skill sets, which ensured everyone of us had an incredible time. Most important, he and the other water planet tour respected the marine life. Some of the other companies on the water that day were working together to trap or herd the dolphins causing them visible stress.... More

Myself and my two daughters aged 12 and 14 went for a 4 hour dolphin swim and Shell Island trip. We were so fortunate being the only ones on the boat with the captain. We had all his attention ! The instructions and information he gave us were second to none. This gentleman is very knowledgeable and explains things so... More

We took the wild dolphin cruise on a day when the weather was unsettled. Our captain did her best. But every time we sighted the dolphins, they left for parts unknown. All the boats were in contact with each other. All had the same results. We did get to snorkel in several places. It was fun. We spent an hour... More

We had the best experience with captain Eddie he was knowledgeable, great with getting us to where dolphins where located. If ever we return we'd love to have captain Eddie as our guide. My daughters enjoyed the tour as well and he made it so easy and smooth to get into water and see dolphins. Hands down the best experience... More

We went out for about 4 hours and wow did we have fun. Our guide Eddie was phenomenal. He insured that we were safe at all times and answered any and all questions that we had. He knew where to find the dolphins and how to predict where they were heading so that we got to swim within feet of... More

Snorkeling has always been one of my favorite things to do at the beach and this was not a disappointment. Our tour guide Eddie was great and super knowledgeable. He knew where to take us and we were successful with seeing dolphins! They were pretty close to the boat and he was excellent at predicting where they would be and... More
