Captain is very experienced. Unforgettable dolphin encounter. He also knows area quite well. The snorkeling is very good. He actually took care of my two little one on boat so we can enjoy the water.

This is a "can't miss" in the Keys. If you're looking for a day of relaxed boating and dolphin viewing with a knowledgeable and genuinely nice guy you can't go wrong with John. He is attentive to your needs and tries hard to make sure you get what you've paid for. When we return, we will certainly make sure an afternoon with John is on the agenda.

Had a great afternoon with John. He worked hard finding dolphins for us, had lots of useful knowledge and found the best place to view the sunset.

We went on Dolphin Watch in November. It was hands down the highlight of our trip. John assured us that we would see dolphins and wow....we saw lots and lots of dolphins, including a little bambino dolphin...so cute! John, the captain, also knows a lot about dolphins (all kinds of dolphins) which was great considering I had so many questions. He provided snacks and the best mix CD ever. We also got to snorkel. It is truly hard to capture what an amazing experience this was for us with mere words. Just know this, if you go on Dolphin Watch, you won't be disappointed. FYI: the captain is also easy on the eyes.

Went out with John yesterday, it was just me and my fiance on the boat. We were quickly treated to a small group of dolphins including a mother and baby. John was brilliant and gave us lots of information about the dolphins and answering our questions, he is very knowledagle and can even name the adult dolphins from their dorsal fins. We stayed with the dolphins getting pictures etc and then headed off to a snorkelling spot just round the coast. We snorkelled over some beautiful coral heads and saw plenty of colourful fish. We were even lucky enough to see a turtle and followed him for a little while. Then we headed just off Sunset Key to watch the Sunset. Nothing was too much trouble and we both had a truly amazing afternoon. If you are in Key West and looking at doing a dolphin watching trip I would definetly call Dolphin Watch!
