Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat can be a thrilling experience.  However, we can disturb dolphins’ natural behaviors, such as migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, and sheltering by approaching wild dolphins too closely in vessels; moving vessels too quickly, or making too much noise.  The Dolphin SMART program is a voluntary education program that encourages responsible advertising and viewing of wild dolphins; thereby, minimizing the risk of disrupting their natural behaviors.  You are a steward for wild dolphin conservation by being a Proud Supporter of Dolphin SMART!

Loved seeing the dolphins. There were so many. Bree was very knowledgeable about the dolphins and it was interesting to learn a little about them. Spent about 20 minutes watching them. Then went snorkeling, which was also a fun experience. A small breakfast and lunch was served. I highly recommend this 3 hour dolphin cruise.

Really neat and unique

Seeing the dolphin sightings was probably the neatest part of the experience. We got the rare chance to see spinner and spotted dolphins. Which they said doesn’t happen a lot. Also swimming with the turtles was neat and there were plenty in the area where we snorkeled. The only thing we didn’t care for was the food. The food felt like an after thought and didn’t really seem like a lunch and breakfast more a snack. Maybe in the future breakfast sandwiches with the fruit instead.

For the price, don’t think the adventure was worth it. Barely had any time to snorkel. Most of the time just boating around.

Amazing experience! Professional crew!

We had an amazing time watching dolphins and snorkeling. Crew was professional, informative, and quite laid back. They provided clear instructions, sanitized snorkeling gears, lunches and drinks. Our time at the spot for dolphins was a well 30 minutes and snorkeling by the corals was 45 minutes. I saw reviews complaining that their time was too short. 45 minutes in the water snorkeling nonstop is very tiring for an average adult; if you rather spend more time I would recommend getting a private charter boat (it’ll cost you a chunk of money). 30 minutes to see dolphins is plenty; they swam around the boat and captain will steer the boat to the good angle for you to see the dolphins. I would definitely recommend this crew to everyone. If you have young children 10 and under, this may not be for you for two reasons: 1. Snorkeling is out in open deep water with life vests and you gotta go around to see turtles and exotic fish so this requires your kids to be confident in the water to snorkel along. 2. The time in the water is 45 minutes so if you’re spending a lot of time to nudge your kids to jump in the water you’re losing time to have fun yourselves. Enjoy your vacation! Stay vacationed!

This was our first time snorkeling & it was the best experience! The crew on the ship was great! The captain Jesse was very courteous & always went around asking if we were ok! We were able to see dolphins & a sea turtle. Also one of the crew was able to fish up a star fish!

Easy boarding, communication was easy, safety was well done. Saw dolphins and that was awesome. The snorkeling on this day was not great - they had a big swell and so not super clear. But a great experience regardless.
