Nice two hour tour

We had a nice two hour tour. We saw several dolphins and also had a half hour walk on a small island/sand bar. The crew were friendly and explained the sights.

Great experience for the whole family. We took our 20 month Grandson out and he had a fantastic time. The island stop over and shell collection was great. We were lucky and saw dolphins on the way back, and even had them wake surfing with us. I would highly recommend including the cruise if you visit Tarpon Springs.

This is my 2nd time in 6 months. Seen many dolphins in this ride and then explore an island and found many sea shells to keep. Well worth time and money while visiting Tarpon Springs.

It was our wedding anniversary and as we were passing through Tarpon Springs we decided to see some of the docks and shopping and ended up buying tickets for the Dolphin cruise on the Anclote River. So glad we did, we had a great time, the staff was very informative on the areas waterways and animals. We even saw a... More

Can't beat this trip. $18th for adult. Less for seniors and kids. We went at 2:30. Saw birds and lots of dolphins. The captain tells about the area and takes plenty of time to stop and look at dolphins. Nice roomy clean & covered boat. Stopped for 30 minutes at an "island" for sea shells. Score!! We loved it!!

What a pleasant way to spend a couple hours... Approximately $20 per pers. Nice stop at the outer island (for shells) or just to get off the boat a for a little while. Only saw a couple dolphins the day we went out. (Parking was included if you went on their boat. :) )

My wife and I took the sunset cruise and was pretty much what we expected. Had a full boat and the island landing was a nice touch. It seemed to be popular with families with kids. All and all, a nice experience.

Had a great time with my wife, daughter, and grand daughter. My wife said she had a ball and I enjoyed the sights and sounds of the area.We were lucky to get up front!!! They gave us each a bag to fill with shells. You have a half Hour to collect them. I found a sand dollar.

I have been to Tarpon Springs several times, but never did the boat cruise. I talked my daughter, son in law and g-kids along with my husband into going to Tarpon Springs. We were staying in IRB and the weather was awful for a few days, and we really wanted to find something to do. I don't think my son... More
