Tried twice to book a ticket during winter time but the weekends I was looking at were always sold out. So I thought I would give it a try in the less touristy summer season. But surprise - after receving the confirmation, I was called and emailed the day before the trip that the tour would be canceled because not enough people signed up (all Sunday trips canceled). Great. I came to Marco Island for the weekend only to do this trip.

Also, no apology, no nothing. I was only offered to rebook for the following Monday or simply receive a refund... I was hoping the crew would help me and work on getting me on board at some point but I guess the commerical aspect is more important here. Very disappointed as I have waited a long time to finally do the tour.

I write to extend my sincere apologies for your unfortunate experience with our Dolphin Explorer. This is not the way we want any of our guests to experience our Dolphin Project. I'm sorry I did not know of your situation earlier. If it works in your future schedule, I would like to offer you and your family to be my personal guest for a tour aboard our Dolphin Explorer. I would be happy to share our Dolphin Explorer experience with your family.

The captain and crew did a great job getting the kids involved with finding the dolphins - the patch and booklet of activities was awesome and the pictures they gave us provided great souvenirs

What an amazing experience. Such knowledgeable people. You learn about the dolphins as well as see them in their natural environment. And having the dolphins flipping and playing in the wake of the boat is unforgettable. Worth every penny!
