Took a tour in December and had a great time. Only 6 passengers and Cap. Mike's still did the tour for us, when others might have canceled. Captain Jerry and First Mate Terry did a great job. Even in winter we saw plenty of dolphins but would have been a fun trip even if we hadn't. Allow time to make... More

My daughter and I went on captain Mikes dophin tour on oct 30th at 11 30am. The boat was fairly full, but you could still walk around to look at things. The tour was around 90 minutes but was so enjoyable felt like 5. We were unfortunately in the wrong month for whales, but saw many dolphins even a baby... More

I went on Captain Mike's daytime tour and Captain Derek's sunset tour! Mike's was good, but the mic didn't work occasionally, I couldn't hear the guide very well and there were bars blocking some of the view around the boat. Whereas on Derek's, the sunset view was incredible, I could hear the guide very well, they played some songs and... More

Lisa S, Manager at Captain Mike's Dolphin Tours, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback. All boats have "bars" if they have canopies. These poles are what hold up the canopy so there is cover from the sun while you ride on the boat. They are only a couple inches wide so it is very easy to turn your head to not have them in your view. Our guides are... More

Capt. Mike's dolphin tour was incredible! We went out late afternoon and were out for about an hour and a half. We saw dolphins literally from the time we left until the time we returned! The guide was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. I brought our camera and got some great pics but ended up putting it away and... More

My Girl Scout troop of 11 & 13 year olds went and had a wonderful time. Not only did the girls see a number of dolphins, but the tour guide gave them a lot of information about dolphins, historical information about the island and the surrounding area, and scientific information about the wetlands, ocean, currents, and tides. My girls want... More

This was a last minute spontaneous trip to surprise my boyfriend on his last day of military leave. He was ecstatic when he discovered that we were going on a dolphin tour. The staff was extremely friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. It was apparent they truly cared about their clients. The boat felt very safe, even while going over rough waves.... More

I went on this tour on Thursday 10/20. The weather was perfect for a ride out to see the dolphins and the tour guides shared their knowledge about the area as well as explaining how Hurricane Matthew had affected the area. We did see some dolphins - and there were some babies in the pod! The boat, Dolphin V, had... More

Awesome went out with them on Oct 20. Beautiful day, awesome trip. They were great in locating dolphins. We stayed with them for about 45 minutes getting great pictures. Totally worth the time. Plus gave us a tour to.

We were running late due to traffic, and They Called US! they offered (with no prompting on our behalf), to move us to a later time, which worked perfectly. The trip was very nice, and the operators are knowledgeable about wildlife, history and all the areas. We learned so much & our kids had a blast!

If you've ever been whale watching or hunting this is nothing like that. These dolphins are so used to the boats that the guides are able to circle them or come right up and the dolphins keep doing whatever they're doing. These dolphins live in the area so you're almost guaranteed to see at least a few but probably more... More
