My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this dolphin watch/snorkel adventure and really liked how the trip was limited to 6 people (instead of a gazillion people like you see on the other tours). We saw lots of dolphins and our guide was really fun, professional and knowledgeable!

As this was the third time (in 5 years) one can understand that we are very satisfied about Dolphin Watch! We made a trip with Evan and had a great time! We saw a lot of dolphins and Evan was enthusiastic and told us a lot. It was a little windy so most of the guests were no so much... More

Really enjoyed our afternoon out on the boat. We saw lots of playful dolphins - even baby ones! - and the snorkeling was a great new experience. Captain Rob is lovely and knowledgeable and made us feel very welcome. I would recommend this trip to anyone, and should I ever go back to Key West, I'd go again.

We had a great day with Captain Bosco. Saw a bunch of dolphins and they swam right up to the boat. Captain Bosco was very knowledgeable about the dolphins and shared a lot with us. We got a lot of information about the history of the Keys and the geography of the area as well. A great way to spend... More

Fantastic morning watching 50-60 dolphins. Went to one area that normally has quite a few dolphins. Dolphins swam right up to the boat.

Took the Dolphin/Snorkel trip and it is wonderful. Captain Rob is very congenial, welcoming and knowledgable. Saw several groups of dolphins and they came right up to the boat. That alone was worth the trip! Got to snorkel in a sponge garden, saw sting ray, shark, angelfish, moray eel, and non stinging jellyfish.

This trip was worth every minute and every penny. Captain John Bosco was terrific. I have had several snorkeling opportunities. Unlike all of the other occasions, he took the time to make certain our equipment was on correctly and that we knew how to use it. He went into the water with us pointing out the different fish and where... More

The guide was informative and knowledgable, and the boat ride itself incredibly peaceful. Even though the winter can be slightly tougher to find dolphins, we did find a small group and they got pretty close to the boat! The snorkeling was incredible! Amazing experience!

We had such a great time with Captain Evan! He could answer every question we've asked and tells us a lot about the animals and their habitat. It's lovely to see how he respects the wildlife and how passionated he is about it. We've seen lots of dolphins, even later on when we were snorkeling. They've been about 5 meters... More

Fantastic trip. Don't really have anything to add to what many others have said. It ended up just being me and my companion, so it really was like a private boat tour. We took the afternoon trip and although he was worried we wouldn't find the dolphins until later we ended up finding a pod of five pretty quickly. We... More
