“Wild about Dolphins”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Great day out with Captain George... he was a great help translating for my Brazilian girlfriend. Saw Dolphins - great to see them in the wild. Snorkeling was great, and the lunch blissful on the boat. Would recommend to anyone.......

“Best of both worlds”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

George was a great host and tour guide , very friendly and accommodating. There are dolphin sight seeing tours, and snorkeling tours. This was the best of both worlds! We got to see a pod of dolphins up really close (including a very young baby)! They were splashing around in the water, swimming under our boat, very cool experience. I had never been snorkeling before and George was a great teacher. The snorkeling spot was great, we saw many cool fish, a stingray and a giant sea turtle. Great experience overall!!

“Great Job!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We enjoyed the most delightful day with Captain George. We came to celebrate my birthday and what better way than a beautiful boat ride and snorkel trip. They provided a nice lunch and were so accommodating . I enjoyed a nice nap in a shaded area on the boat while we stopped for a while on a sandbar in the middle of the bluest water. I would rebook this exact trip on our next trip down. Great job!!! With a focus on customer satisfaction.

“The best experiences in Key West”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went out with Sherri and Maya(The Dolphin Dog)!!! Maya was so cute, everyone loves her. Maya helped us looked for the dolphins, and thanks to her, we were able to spot two group of dolphins (4-6 each). The Snorkle time was also wonderful. We saw beautiful fishes & coral. Sherri was very thoughtful and customized for us because few people in the group can't swim.

So glad we chose this trip!!!! This was the best experiences we had in Key West!!

Thank you Sherri & Maya!

“80% Chance of Thunder showers.”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I can't say enough about Captain Sheri, Maya and Wild about Dolphins. The morning started off with poor weather conditions with thunder storms around 6am. Sheri called around 9 am to let us know about the front moving in from Cuba, to see if we were flexible in date, in case the weather was bad for the 1 o'clock trip. We discussed the options and agreed to touched base at at noon. By that time the front changed direction but there was still an 80% chance for rain. We decided to risk the rain and go on with the trip as scheduled. The day turned out to be BEAUTIFUL. We started out of the harbour with an escort of 3 to 4 dolphins. Sensory overload was about to set in, I hear what sounds like thunder in the distance, I look up and see an F18 hornet chasing an F 5 tiger. The Navy was doing maneuvers off the coast what an awesome sight and sound. The next few minutes were like "look at the dolphins, look at the planes, look at the dolphins, look at the planes" We continue on toward what is called the "dolphins playground" and we see some dolphins in the distance. The next thing we know we are surrounded by about 15 to 20 dolphins. The #1 snorkeling site was too murky due to the weather so we headed to an alternate site. We stopped on a sand bar on the way out collected some shells and saw a sting ray and had some snacks. We headed out to snorkel and encountered several colorful varieties of fish and both hard and soft coral. The four hour trip was outstanding. We had a blast with Maya as we requested her to come along. Sheri offers the option if you do not like animals or are afraid of dogs or just hesitant opt out otherwise Maya is wonderful. I see the comments of she jumped around etc. Remember She is a dog and is just as excited as we are to encounter wild life. With an 80% chance of rain we hit the jack pot. We saw iguana, dolphins, sharks, stingrays, assorted colorful fish, tarpon and a couple of manatees. Outstanding trip. This was our second time and will do this trip again on our next trip to Key West. It MADE our trip. (Both times) This is a great video.
