“Dolphin Mania”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Captain John was excellent...we were down in Vero Beach for a family vacation. I found the boat tour here on trip-advisor and we were more than satisfied. Our party of 8, was the only passengers aboard the boat, Which it made it our own private tour. John a native to the area new the ins and outs of the lagoons. We saw all sorts of shore birds and so many dolphins we were running from one side of the boat to the other. I 100% recommend this boat trip, I can guarantee we will be taking that trip every time we visit the area.

We had a great time on this pontoon boat ride. We saw loads of dolphins and a manatee up close to the boat. Our guide pointed out loads of birds and other interesting nature facts.

“Great Service and Great Trip!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

My wife and myself booked a trip on the pontoon boat, We were the only two people to book for that time but they still took the two of us out instead of cancelling the trip. The Captain of the boat took us on a awesome tour and made sure he found us dolphins. He did not rush us along when we found the dolphins. We saw tons of birds also. Would recommend this trip to anyone heading to Vero.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

The crew was excellent and extremely knowledgeable! My mother and I took this tour together and we ended up being the only people on the boat at that time, which made for an very personalized tour! We were able to see rare birds and even followed a pod of dolphins while they were feeding.
