We had a great time on our sunset ride! After exploring several companies in the Clearwater Beach area, we decided on Encounters with Dolphins. We saw a couple of dolphins within the first 10 minutes of the trip and a few more toward the end....More
First upon arrival to the booth the ticket lady was very rude and stated to us that we were late for checkin for a 5:00 departure. In fact we arrived 20 minutes prior to. As we were standing waiting to board the boat she yelled...More
I really wanted to go on the Kai Lani catamaran but it was being serviced during my visit. Next I went to the EWD kiosk and spoke with Lisa. During her intro conversation, another potential customer came up and began to flip through some photos...More
We saw only 2 dolphins which were sighted near a boat pier, not the fault of the owners. Island was also disappointing, very tiny and lots of broken shells, saw one starfish and sea urchins, but water was murky. Interesting information about the bay area...More
The trip all in all was great and the we had a great time. We saw Dolphins, which was a huge plus. The island we stopped at was tiny but the kids enjoyed it.
Our tour guide was very crabby and needs to find a...More
Wonderful tour with super friendly people. They work with the other tours to help everyone get a chance to see dolphins. Stopping at Compass Island was a plus! Huge shells can be found there. Definitely recommend!
Encounters with Dolphins in Clearwater Florda was not a good outing for our family on Fathers Day. The area is super crowded, and there was no parking available!!! We searched for over an hour and could not find a parking spot. So my husband decided...More
Very accommodating to families with small children. You can bring a carseat to help with smaller children making it easier for them to see. The captain and first mate were knowledgeable about the area and were wonderful with the whole excursion.
Our families (4 adults, 5 kids) took the 7pm trip. It was relaxing and adventurous all in one. We saw several dolphins and had a blast exploring the little island. We collected lots of shells and saw (and rescued) a starfish and sea urchin. The...More
The captain was great super funny and had a lot of knowledge. We only saw 2 dolphins the entire time which I understand isn’t their fault. Getting off the boat onto the island to find sea shells was pretty cool. Over all was a good...More
I've heard the same thing.
We took an early afternoon trip with this company and saw a few dolphins from afar. The boat itself is fully covered though so it's a comfortable ride regardless of the time of day (i.e....you... More

We took an early afternoon trip with this company and saw a few dolphins from afar. The boat itself is fully covered though so it's a comfortable ride regardless of the time of day (i.e....you don't bake in the sun for the entire ride).
A couple years ago, we took a morning tour on a different dolphin tour at Clearwater Beach and saw a ton of dolphins.
The time on their island is quite lovely. Enjoy!
Hope this helps!
We did. We chose to go snorkling. But with that said, we were able to walk off the boat to the island for shelling without getting really wet. They pull up close and put out a ramp for you to walk off the boat. We got... More
We did. We chose to go snorkling. But with that said, we were able to walk off the boat to the island for shelling without getting really wet. They pull up close and put out a ramp for you to walk off the boat. We got wet up to our knees or so when we were searching for shells.
