“Go early”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Plan on taking this tour early in your vacation, that way you'll have time to take another trip out in case you don't see dolphins. Took us 2 trips before we saw dolphins. Others on our boat also had made multiple trips. On 2nd trip, 2 dolphins played in the wake, jumping and surfing. Very entertaining.

Little Toot is by far the best of the dolphin trips in Clearwater. Firstly, the boat is smaller than most of the others and so you get closer to the dolphins. Secondly, it's a tug and powered by a super charged engine that creates the mother of all wakes at the back of the boat, which the dolphins LOVE to surf!
These 2 facts combined make for a great dolphin experience!!
My girlfriend and I loved the experience, so much so we have been out 3 times with them over the last 2 days.
Captain James and First Mate Red are fantastic!! Nice guys, good fun and above all out to give you the best experience. So much so, we were on our way back in to the Marina today when we came across another pod of dolphins, so captain James just turned the boat back around and cranked up the engine, just so we could have another super experience with the dolphins surfing in the wake. As a result the trip was longer than normal, but that just shows how they want their customers to have a great time and are not sticklers for time.
I can not say enough good things about the Little Toot dolphin trip. Go do it, you will not be disappointed!!
And if you don't see dolphins, you get to go again for free!!
Thanks James and Red for a great time, we will be back!!

“Dolphin Show”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We had a full boat and there was plenty of room for everyone to move around and watch the dolphins as they came up to the side of the boat/back of the boat and put on a show of jumping and spinning and smiling for the cameras!!

“Best boat for spotting dolphins”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Little Toot seeks out dolphins then they follow the boat, jumping in its wake. We have been many times in the last 15 years and never failed to spot dolphins. There are many other sights to see and the crew are great - very knowledgable and friendly. Give it a try!!!

“Great dolphin adventure!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We went in the 11am tour. After about 20 minutes on the boat we saw a few dolphins, the boat sped up and the whole pod started to play in the wake! It was fantastic! The crew (husband and wife) were really friendly and knew their dolphin facts! We saw more dolphins when we headed out into the gulf, but they were a lot quieter and didn't want to play. I would highly recommend Little Toot, it was great value for money.
