This was, without a doubt, the highlight of our trip to Key West. Our captain, John, was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He knew when to give information and, perhaps more importantly, when to just let the wonder of the moment happen. We saw upwards of 20 dolphins (some of which the captain recognized on sight) on our 4 hour trip as pods would combine and separate. At the end, we had the opportunity to snorkel with John as our guide. If you're looking for a smaller, more relaxed dolphin watching charter, this is the one for you.

Relaxing morning on the boat. We saw plenty of dolphins including baby ones :-) We continued on to our snorkeling spot and saw some sponges, little jelly fish, lobster and some cool fish. Captain John knee a lot and was helpful in answering questions. There was plenty of water and tasty fresh fruit to help you recover from that "savory" salty water ;-) Well worth it.

This was truly one of the highlights of our trip to Florida. Very comfortable boat, great captain, calm and relaxing atmosphere. No sense of urgency to cover the sites so that the next group could come on board which is so often the case with trips. We are a family of four with two children (aged 7 and 10) and they were completely enthralled with both the dolphins and the snorkelling opportunity. John (the captain) took the girls out to the reef and showed them loads of stuff. It is the one day that they have talked about the most and we were in Florida for three weeks including 5 days in Disney. Loads of opportunities to see the dolphins even though the weather had been a little windy and the sea was not as calm as usual. And the colour of the sea is just beautiful... enjoy!
