Our second time out with Captain Dalton and Kyle. (YAY!!!) Because of the high winds and rougher-than-usual waves in deeper water, there seemed to be more dolphins than usual in the shallows. We had a great trip and an exceptionally long run of wake-jumping dolphins. Capt Dalton is a very personable and knowledgeable guide and is a great asset. I... More

First off, first mate Mike & Captain Dolton were amazing! We traveled two hours from Orlando to partake and hit some heavy traffic! We ended up arriving 6-7 minutes late and they waited for us!! This cruise only has one - 1:30, so we would have had to come back. For this we're ever grateful! Now this cruise promises dolphins... More

The best day ever for our family. We say so many dolphins and the super crew did everything they could to get the dolphins "playing". Capt Dalton and first mate Mike were great and really knowledgeable. If your in the area go for a ride on the Dolphin Racer, you won't regret it.

The fact that they offer you 'if you don't see a dolphin - your next trip is free'! I would post the video - but that wouldn't be fair! This trip you must do if you are in the area!! The Captain was amazing - and I learned a lot about dolphins on this day! The Dolphins did not disappoint!!... More

We loved it and so did my kids 2 years old and 9 year old. It was a great family adventure. You do get a little wet but I liked that. The dolphins were beautiful and it was very educational also. I would love to go back.

Captain Dennis & Dalton were awesome. Very funny & knowledgeable. Saw dolphins right when we were leaving the dock & saw some out on the tour. Would have liked to see them jump the boat wake but they didn't. Very fun!!

A fun 1&1/2 hour. The Captain was knowledgeable about the area and he and his first mate had a great sense of humor. We saw dolphins going out into the bay and again as we headed back to the dock. There was even a precious baby dolphin jumping with it's mom in the boat wake. The boat left on time... More
