John was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide for both dolphin-watching and also snorkeling. We saw tens of dolphins (even a mother and baby), and many were quite close to the catamaran. With only four of us, he gave plenty of attention, information, and answered our many questions. He snorkeled with us for a time, which was awesome....pointing out sea creatures, sponge, interesting coral formations. We highly recommend Dolphin Watch and John.

The captain was great. Super smooth ride. So relaxing. Lots of dolphin sightings. So interesting to follow dolphins in the wild. All 3 of my teenage kids loved it! Highly recommend!!

We had a great time one the boat with our guide Jon. Altogether, we were 5 people plus Jon on the boat. It took us about 2 hours to find a group of dolphins (though the weather and sea conditions were really calm and good). Then we had plenty of time watching a group of dolphins play around. We followed them quietly with our boat (we were the only boat watching them and the first boat on that day to discover the dolphins as far as I'm concerned). We also got the opportunity to snorkel on a reef (though the bottom in the bay is usually quite muddy). We were offered ice water and fruits and Jon talked a lot about his experienced with the sea wildlife. The overall tour took 4 hours and we would definately recommend it to anyone interested in watching dolphins in their natural environment. We had a really awesome time!

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.
