Our small group, only six people, made this trip a great personal experience. Our Captain, Bosco, was very knowledgeable so we learned a lot about the Key West eco system. We will repeat this trip when we return to Key West. A great value.

She was very knowledgeable and knew where the best spots to find them were. Snorkeling was also a lot of fun. We saw a barracuda, eel, stingray, and lots of different fish. The boat... More

We had a great time on the dolphin watch/ snorkeling morning trip with Janet. Janet was a great tour guide and incredibly informative throughout the course of the excursion. We saw dolphins within 20 minutes of leaving, seeing them several times. The snorkeling was also great, seeing tons of fish, a sting ray, eel and a barracuda. This excursion is... More

This trip provides great views of dolphins, but as important a well-informed commentary about these fascinating animals. Added to this is an amazing snorkeling experience, friendly and informative guides, refreshing snacks and good company. Highly recommended!
