Highly recommend - amazing dolphin and wildlife tour, smooth ride!
Sep 2021 • Friends
This was my second time out with Rob and Emily and I had a great time, could not more highly recommend!

Dolphins, Manatees, Rays, Fish, Seabirds - just a few things you can see on the trip.

Had a beautiful baby dolphin encounter today with Nacho the dolphin and her pod.

Emily and Rob are very knowledgeable, friendly, and a whole lot of fun!

The boat rides smoothly, and I’ve been able to take my grandmother who has some mobility issues. We had a great time!

Amazing and Worthwhile
Aug 2021 • Family
Absolutely incredible experience. I highly recommend this company for a dolphin tour. The boat was comfortable, the hosts were knowledgeable and passionate, and seeing dolphins in the wild is breathtaking. I highly recommend this over a cheesy, commercialized speed boat with tons of other people. This private tour is relaxing and unforgettable with people who are deeply connected to St. Petersburg.

We Had a Great Time!
We went out on the 1.5hour dolphin trip for our one year old son’s first boat ride to see how he’d do. He loved it and so did we. Rob and Emily were amazing and very knowledgeable of the area. We only saw a couple of dolphins on this trip because you can’t control nature but still had an amazing time being on the water. The small, private boat with a small crew was the best way to go for us and it didn’t disappoint. Will do it again.

Sunrise with dolphins
Apr 2021 • Couples
We went to Florida for a last minute vacation and of course I wanted to see dolphins. Through my searching I found this tour with availability and a GREAT price. The morning of walking to the pier I was a bit skeptical until we were greeted by two of the nicest people we’ve met on our vacation. It was just literally me & my boyfriend on a private boat sitting right on the edge while the sun is still rising. They made sure we were safe & they also went over the history of some of the houses and the bridge, not to mention they know so much about these dolphins. Honestly, when we return I am definitely booking another tour with them. It was such a beautiful, intimate encounter. The dolphins were so close to us and swam next to the boat a couple times. I forgot to mention, they named the dolphins. My favorite was Nacho. Thank you so much for a unique experience.

Best dolphin tour ever!
Jun 2021 • Family
The tour was great. Dolphins were really active coming right up to the boat to check us out.
Emily and Rob were really nice and talked to us about dolphins but also things other than dolphins. They gave us all kinds of advice about places to eat, stay, beaches neighborhoods, etc. Wear lots of sunscreen as you're out on the water for the 1.5 hours. Also, the forecast was calling for rain but it wound up sunny and bright. Highly recommend!
