My family and I went on the dolphin snorkel trip and loved it. The boat maneuvers to the area where the dolphins are swimming through. You jump in the water and swim with them. Some playfully come closer and even jump out of the water. Later we went to the Captain Cook area to snorkel with fish. We were so exhausted but it was so much fun!

It was a great crew and the small size of the boat and small number of people on board made it fast to get in and out of the water so we could make multiple stop to see the most dolphins possible.

One of the most amazing experiences of my life. We swam twice with the dolphins, saw two pairs of whales and heard them sing too. The snorkeling spot was a little underwhelming, but seriously after swimming with dolphins twice who cares. The boat and the crew were fabulous and really knew their stuff. Did I mention we swam with the dolphins twice!!! Floating around in the ocean with dolphins surrounding you is breathtaking. Our Uber driver didnt drop us in the right spot, so make sure you dont get out until you can see the Biteme fishing shop.

Best trip ever. Everyone enjoyed swimming with the dolphins. Even though it took several attempts, the Captain and JJ were able to catch up with the dolphins so that we were able to swim with them. Our non-swimmer was also able to see the dolphins jumping out of the water and swim around the boat. In the ocean, JJ was great in pointing out the other sea life. Would recommend this trip with Bite Me Sportfishing highly.

we were 6 total so we didn't spend a bunch of time getting ready and listening to rules. Our Captain took us right out to where the dolphins were swimming and we enjoyed at least an hour of swimming amongst them. My daughters were able to swim fast enough that when the dolphins came up, they were surrounded! Then she took us to her 'special' cove and we snorkeled, no other people around, so many beautiful fish! I would do this again!!!!!
