A really great time!!!

If you are in the area, and can get a groupon, this boat ride is worth every penny!! We saw a lot of dolphins, and also got a nice tour of the area, I loved every second of it!!

We loved our tour on dolphin quest! I would for sure do it again and they had a groupon which made it really affordable! We saw a lot of dolphins and learned a lot about the area and houses around Johns Pass!

Gorgeous day for watching dolphins in natural habitat. The pontoon type boat was stable and comfortable padded bench seating plentiful. The captain and mate were friendly and informative. We saw dolphins and some island dwelling birds. The 1 1/2 hour excursion left on time at noon. Drinks are available at fair market prices but limited selection on board. No restroom... More

Enjoy watching dolphins swim around your boat. Captain very friendly, fun and entertaining. Fun for adults and children. We were also given a tour of the bay, the local points of interest and entertaining trivia! Would definitely recommend this!

We decided at the last minute to do a dolphin cruise. They were about to take off when we inquired. They held the boat an extra 5 min while we boarded. The ride was absolutely gorgeous!! They have a lot of history on houses n land we passed. They were very accommodating to everyone and very friendly

Very inexpensive - a great family adventure for anyone who wants to see dolphins. We got to see one before even getting on the 40 foot catamaran while we were waiting to board. It was truly an amazing experience. 90 minutes of entertainment and excitement through John’s Pass. We were able to see many dolphins, birds, and the beautiful homes... More

Nick was charismatic and knowledgeable. Pointed out lots of local highlights and then there were the dolphins! So cool and worth the money! Even got to see babies with their pod. Enjoyable. Relaxing and fun.
