Saw lots of Dolphins then really good snorkeling. Captain Rich went out of his way to make sure the kids got to see lots of stingrays and a big nurse shark while snorkeling. Finished it off with a beautiful sunset. Really a great late afternoon activity!

Not often you get to see dolphins in the wild. Capt Gary was friendly, knowledgeable and has been doing this for many years! The boat was very nice and after a little ride out of the harbor we were watching a solo dolphin. After a short while we were watching a pod of 4 or 5 and following them around... More

Awesome trip!! We saw lots of dolphins.  Lots of different fish during snorkeling as well.  Our captain was very informative and helpful (Trish I think), as she educated us on the history of our surroundings and pointed out various interesting things.  Also took us by Mallory square for the sunset celebration as we watched the sun disappear into the horizon....

Treated my folks to a vacation to the Florida Keys and wanted the best adventures! Capt Gary was awesome! Made us laugh the whole time and got us some great interactions with a few dolphins. Snorkeling was relaxing and the hour flew by! Swimming with the stingrays and parrot fish was breathtaking! Felt like we went out on a friends... More

Captain Gary greeted us but Sunshine was our captain. Her enthusiasm was infectious and we were all giddy at the dolphins before us!! I cannot believe how many dolphins we saw!!! They seemed like they were playing with us, racing our slowed down pace encouraging us to go faster to keep up with them!! At the first stop we met... More

The dolphin/snorkling trip was very well organized to fit both activities into a few hours.The boat and equipment were decent. There was of course no guaranty that we would see either tropical fish or dolphins, but we did, in abundance. Very cool to see the animals swimming free and not in captivity. The staff were very friendly, professional, helpful, fun.

Our family had a great day out on the water with Gary, our Dolphin Safari guide! The boat was clean & very comfortable and it was wonderful that we had it all to ourselves. We saw a few pods of dolphins and they came right up to our boat! The snorkeling was an added bonus. The kids loved feeding the... More

We had the pleasure of taking a private trip with Captain Gary who is not only very knowledgeable but has great passion and energy for what he does that makes this trip better than all the rest! Dolphins, manatees, sandbar swimming and the breathtaking views were just icing on the cake! Looking forward to our next excursion!!
