Gaetan_M, Jan 2023
It was very good to see the dolphins. For the snorkelling, it was quick and I would have prefer to see more colors but maybe it was because the see was to much agitated at the other place.
A pleasure

Alexandra_O, Jan 2023
Great experience, the captain and people were super fun. Didn’t see that many dolphins, but it was a good experience.
Booked with two different company’s and charged twice, ??
Jennifer_L, Jan 2023
We signed up directly with sunset Watersports and had a great time. I’m not sure how Viator also had us scheduled with a 2nd company called Fury for overlapping time. Going to have to figure out how to get refund for cruise we didnt even take. I booked other things thru Viator but not this.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hello Jennifer_L. We're sorry you had some issues booking experiences through the Viator system. Furthermore, it's a shame we didn't get the opportunity to take you out & show you a great time on the water during your stay. We want to assure you that there is no way for Fury as a tour provider to use your personal card through the Viator system. We highly reccomend reaching out to Viator support regarding this issue. That being said, we'd love to see you next time for a great experience!
Very disappointing . Waste of money
chantel_a, Jan 2023
Nothing . The water was not clear to snorkel. The guide did not join us. In past excursions. I’ve been on at least one of the operators goes in the water with you. Also, we didn’t go that far out and the water was not that clear…. The door guy just say hey go over there by the green buoy…. As far as Dolphins, I was not that impressed. I’ve been another tours where the boat captain took their time. Had the engine off and dolphins would come.. actually quite disappointing all around
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We regret that you were unable to enjoy your trip with us as it is our goal to deliver a fun and safe day on the water! Unfortunately, we do not offer guided snorkel tours. Our captains and crew are very dedicated to the safety of all our guests and must stay aboard the vessel so they can see all participants from above. Normally, guests see amazing marine life and coral heads - just see our thousands of reviews! Unfortunately, all of our water adventures influenced by Mother Nature. Many days underwater visibility is 80+ feet and teeming with sea life; some days are not. Though we hope that every day is perfect, we are always happy to have guests join us on the water for a unique snorkel experience. We hope to have the opportunity to have you back out with us again!
The crew made the trip!...
Tracey_K, Dec 2022
The crew made the trip! It was a great time. Stevie and Carson were awesome! I’d highly recommend this trip.
Well worth it!
Kathleen_L, Dec 2022
Knowledgeable captain and first mate. Go Stevie and Carson! Fun times! Thank you! Highly recommend.🫶🏼
Fun Trip
Jack_V, Dec 2022
We had a great time. We saw dolphins in the wild but would have loved to see more. The snorkeling was fun as well off of a small nearby island and reef. The crew were amazing and friendly. We will go again.
Boat ride/captain was good but snorkeling and dolphins not so much
Kristina_K, Dec 2022
It was nice to be on the water and they played good music and beverages were plentiful (after snorkeling). However, we were disappointed as we did not see any dolphins and the snorkeling was not good either. Everything was gray and we didn't not see anything except for a few non colorful fish. The staff was wonderful and they tried to find dolphins but no luck.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you for taking the time to review your trip with Fury. Our Dolphin Watch & Snorkel has a very high success rate for seeing dolphins- please see our many five star reviews! The wild dolphins that live in the ocean surrounding Key West do not migrate. Nearly every day of the week they can be spotted in the shallow waters of the back country. They are curious creatures and rarely shy. Our crew members even know some of the dolphins by name! Unfortunately, there are the very few occasions when they roam away from their typical habitat. We are sorry that you were unable to enjoy viewing the wild dolphins during your tour. We hope that we get the opportunity to take you out again in the future and show you a great time on the water.
No Luck That Day
Susan_C, Nov 2022
We saw one dolphin fin and the snorkeling was a disappointment too. No color, very few fish. The best part was being on the water and sipping a glass of wine on the way back.
