WHAT A FABULOUS TIME! If you can only do one adventure when you are in town, do this. I had not realized we were having a private tour and we were treated like royalty. Our captain was friendly and knowledgeable. He MADE it his business to ensure we encountered all that we wanted and then some. The boat was huge and pristine! The dolphins were not in the usual spots, could be the season but he was persistent in making this the total experience. He made one last attempt and WOW, it was majestic and humbling...what graceful creatures. Thank you so much for a bucket list trip! DO THIS!!

The worst tour I have ever been on in my life. I have been traveling all my life from the carribean to Japan to all over the United States. I hate to complain but this was a complete rip off as a tour. zThe snorkeling is not worth the price. we saw a dead fish and nothing at the spot that the tour guide took us to. the water was very muky and dirty, but of course were not in key west or other parts of florida where the coral reefs are known with all the fishies. We knew not to except much but come on swimming with dead fish. Not to mention our guide had no personality really...it was cold, rainy and no refreshments were given even though he had an ice chest for him self. Where did our 80.00 go? Worst trip Ive ever been on.
