We did two trips with Nature Watch the first was a dolphin watch and a snorkel trip and our guide Stephanie was amazing! We have two girls 14 7 17 and she was like the big sister that was extremely knowledgeable and professional and simply went out of her way to make sure we had a blast!
Our second trip was paddle boarding through the mangroves and snorkeling again the paddle board trip was awesome beyond and we saw sea turtles, dolphins, a small nurse shark, horseshoe crab, 2 kinds of rays ... I 100% suggest this company and 1000 % suggest Stephanie! We are planning another trip to the Keys and this is number 1 on our list!
Eight days in the Keys, two trips with this company and they were the highlight of our trip!

Great experience with a more intimate itinerary than can be found on most tours. Capt Rob was quite knowledgeable and handled the Patty C with skill and care. He took great care of his guests. We had an additional crewman Hudson, who served up a mean platter of fresh fruit and even tracked us down to deliver a lost hat--most appreciated.

The Patty C is only 31 feet and perfect for 6 guests. The waters were a little too rough and prevented snorkeling at the reef but an alternate site was sheltered and adequate for a leisurely snorkel from the boat.

Dolphins were spotted fairly quickly due to cooperation amongst Captain Evan on the E.O. Wilson and Captain Rob on the Patty C. A mother and her young calf were quite active, along with a third larger adult. Both boats were respectful of the animals and not interfering with behaviors or endangering them.

This was definitely a low-stress and smaller experience--just what we were looking for and different than many of the large and much noisier tours.

Honest Eco dolphin tours on the Patty C is a relaxing way to get out on the water, see some dolphins and relax on an easy snorkel trip. Well worth it.

This cruise was the highlight of our trip. We saw two dolphins and a calf. It was just my husband and myself with another family of four. So glad we took this tour compared to some of the others that were out on the bay with tons of people on their boats. Our captain Rob was very friendly and knowledgeable about the sea life and the area. Was surprised by the amount of fish we saw while snorkeling including angelfish, moray eel and barracuda. A great way to spend the day!

Booked this through our B&B- Heron House - and were definitely not disappointed. It's a great tour with small groups, not more than 6 on a trip.

We took off with our fantastic guide Evan who introduced us to the trip and gave great info. Plenty of water and fruit for the trip out.

Took our time, Evan was looking for dolphins and would steer the boat to different places, but no luck! We tied off and snorkeled for a bit. Evan pointed out cool things- different fish, lobsters- we saw a frog fish. Plenty of time to explore on your own before getting back on the boat for pineapple and other fruit Evan cut up for us.

Next stop, kayaking around a small island. Again Evan pointed out the birds- cormorants, egrets, a couple osprey, and herons. Lots of good info and history. We also were lucky to see a couple sharks- Evan's kayak went right over one! We saw horseshoe crabs and a boat recently traveling from Cuba. We took our time and the kayaking was not exhausting.

Back on the boat - Captain Evan had hummus and pita with veggies. We took a slow trip home enjoying the sunset.

If you want to really see some cool fish and birds with a small group and a great guide- this one is for you!

We had a wonderful experience with Dolphin Watch on Monday, the 21st on the 9:30 am tour. Captain Rob was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and surrounding area. His customer service was phenomenal, he was approachable and welcomed questions. He snorkeled with us for awhile and brought up shells and items from the bottom so we could get a closer look. It was very windy the day we went and I always felt I was in safe hands. I generally battle sea sickness, but the boat was amazing despite the weather and I felt fine despite the choppy water. Relaxing on the front deck in the sun was amazing on it's own which made it fine that it took us a little longer to find some dolphins but when we did it was awesome. We followed them for awhile and it was pretty incredible. The small tour size makes the trip really special, especially as we passed other boats stocked to the brim with loud tourists. Overall, I would 100% recommend this to everyone, you cannot beat their service and intimate small group experience, I would go with the same company in a heartbeat.
