  • The 11am boat tour was nice but we didn’t see any dolphins—disappointed but still enjoyed the tour. It was chilly so bring a jacket. We stopped on the tiniest island for “shells” which was silly. Over...  more »

  • Great adventure for $20 a person. We saw tons of dolphins and they come right up to the boat. Also go by some celebrity houses that they point out who lives where. The island was kind of a joke as it ...  more »

  • My daughter (17 yrs old) and I had an excellent experience during the entire trip. We headed out around 6pm for the sunset cruise in June. They guaranteed that we would see dolphins or we could come back another time (no extra charge). They announced this as they pulled away from the dock. Anyway, it seemed like they were willing to stay on the bay and try several places in many areas that they knew we would see dolphins and sure enough, we saw several! I have a 6 minute video of dolphins swimming together in their natural habitat. It was a great experience, possibly the best day during our 5 days in Clearwater Beach. The family who owns and operates this company couldn't have been more professional or courteous, not to mention funny! They also had a planned stop on a tiny island for shell collecting and photos. We had a great photo of us (taken by the captain) while the sun set behind us. A great experience and wonderful memories over all!
  • Such a nice experience! The dolphins were so beautiful and entertaining. The kids found "gold coins" on the island while looking for shells. This is a great adventure for making memories.
  • the best expierence we've had. so happy I was able to bring my daughter for her 13th birthday. we encountered 4 or 5 dolphins, they stayed around us for about 20 min. the captain and for at mate we're wonderful. beautiful experience.
  • First off ,I will start with the booking.. we booked online, it was easy and straight forward. ( just make sure you get your receipt when you check in at the marina, because that is your ticket to get on the boat ) you can bring whatever you want to drink or eat on this cruise. The captain and his first mate did a great job.. we saw a small pod of dolphins. Once the boat is out of the marina you are allowed to stand up....( for some reason it makes me feel like I can see so much better ;)There is a bathroom on the boat and once you get to the island they will offer you snorkel equipment. We brought our swimsuits and changed in the small bathroom on the boat. They do have a variety of pops and bottled water, small bags of chips for purchase ($1 each)on the boat...we took the 5pm tour. We saw dolphins right away. This is the cheapest tour that we found, I would definitely do it again... it was just a small group on the boat so that was awesome for us as it was so much easier to move around when a dolphin is spotted. Tips are greatly appreciated...(tip em' well) PS...Eat at the marina cantina before you go... make sure you get Kris as your waiter he's great!! 👍🏻
  • Good ride, but would have liked to have been told upfront that they allowed alcohol on the ride. I don’t like alcohol and don’t care to be exposed to people’s stupidity while they drink.
