Dolphin Quest provides a wonderful experience for all ages. We always see dolphins when we go, but even if you didn't, it's a great, scenic boat ride on the Intercoastal Waterway and out into the Gulf. The captain does a really good job of narrating,...More

Took the in-laws on a boat ride with Dolphin Quest. Good decision it was and great ride we had. The Captain and Crew did a good job of steering us to see the Dolphins with 10-20 feet of the boat. Spent a lot of time...More

Being from Florida, it was fun to watch how excited other people were when the captain found dolphins and maneuvered the boat (slowly and non intrusively) right near them. We had a wonderful time and the crew was very engaging and fun. We loved seeing...More

The captain and crew were great. They talked about the animals that were seen as well as the history of the area. We had a lot of fun and saw quite a few dolphins and birds. I would use them again for sure.

Very fun time. Used it as a way to get off the beach but still on the water. Saw plenty of dolphins. The crew was great. There were kids but everyone kept to themselves making it an enjoyable experience.

The website suggests booking in advance, but we booked the morning of with no problems. We took our 4 yr old and she really liked it. I think she would've been scared of those pirates. LOL

We were on the 4pm cruise (before the time change) and seen tons of dolphin as soon as the boat pulled from the dock. I can't believe in all the trips to that boardwalk we had never seen them before. Maybe we just didn't... More
