This is my 2nd time doing this tour with water planet, both times we went out with Captain Eddie, who is simply amazing. He knew exactly where to take us to swim with dolphins. Captain Eddie is so knowledgeable and for the 2nd time i have learned so much more than the first time. The water was choppy but we were still able to see and swim in the dolphin habitats. We did some snorkeling at shell island got to see sea urchins, scallops and it was just so beautiful. We had 5 people, this was their first time doing this type of tour, and they all just loved it! We will be coming back to do it again. Thank you Mikayla for setting up our reservations, Thank you to Captain Eddie for taking us out and showing me and my family a wonderful time with dolphins.

Swim with the dolphins was outstanding! Captain Dale was exceptional! and the dolphins, well they were amazing! What a lovely day in the Gulf with my sister who was visiting from Pennsylvania. She wanted to swim with dolphins and boy did they show up. One pass was a pod of five with a mother and baby to our left and three mature dolphins to our right. A memory we will not soon forget. Thank Water Planet!

Our family had the best time with Water Planet! Jay was the captain of the boat, and he was so knowledgeable about the wildlife and the ocean. He helped us to better understand the creatures, and worked so hard to make sure we could swim with multiple pods of dolphins. He and this experience exceeded every expectation we had! Thank you Jay and Water Planet!
