My wife and I decided to do the dolphin safari on our last vacation to Key West, it could not have been a better experience! We were able to see Dolphins in their natural habitat, snorkel and watch a beautiful sunset! I would recommend going on the sunset trip and trying to get Capt. Gary because he made the entire...

Just enjoyed a dolphin safari & snorkling trip together with my 7 year old daugther. It was fabulous! Dolphins, sting ray, nurse shark and even a manatee in the harbour. Professional and fun guide. TOP!

I would suggest this tour for everyone in key west. What a nice experience... Captain richard was really careful and friendly with our family... Since they have small boats (don't worry , safe enough), all 4 members of family completed the crew....private boat for us... Yes we saw dolphins but in respect of their natural living... As for snorkling... It... More

August 2014: just got back from a great trip. Captain Gary was the best. Found lots of Dolphin including a baby with its mother. Snorkeling was tons of fun - anyone can do it. It was my first time and would love to go again. Don't miss this trip.

First of all, the boats are small and accommodate 6 people max, which makes for a good experience as it makes for a tailored experience. Captain Richard was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw dolphins very early after leaving the harbour. It was an amazing feeling! We stayed around there for as long as we wanted and moved on after... More

My husband, son, and I took a dolphin/snorkeling trip. It was fantastic. We saw many dolphins right away. Captain Richard was very knowledgeable. Snorkeling at sunset was fabulous!

My wife and I wanted to see the Dolphins and go snorkeling and this was just up our alley. Everything is included and the staff are very competent and relaxed. Choose this firm to spend a relaxed and enjoyable time on the water.

Getting out on the water in the Keys changes the whole KW experience. The water is soooo beautiful. We happened to go out on the boat with Captain George and were thrilled when our trip turned out so awesome. George shares with you a wealth of knowledge, he was a great host and we had a great time, plus saw... More
