Overall an amazing tour!! Great views, great waves, and amazing wildlife encounters. Chandler was an incredible guide who I'd definitely tour with again. He was knowledgeable, skilled, and friendly, and the boat and equipment were spotless.


It was amazing our Captain was amazing, he done whatever the kids wanted to do my husband and I enjoyed the ride.


Captain Chandler was fantastic! Wonderful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon on his boat.


Our guide Justin was very knowledgeable about the areas. He told us he was there for us whatever we wanted to do. He told us the options. We also got to see dolphins swimming in their natural habitat. I would definitely go back.


This tour, hands down, was the best Dolphin tour we have been on by far. We have been on multiple Dolphin sightseeing tours throughout Florida and this by far was the best!


We had a blast!!! Captain Chandler did a great job and make it a trip we will never forget!!! Highly recommend!


Chandler was amazing!!! He made sure fun was had by all!!! Swam with dolphins, and snorkeling for silver dollars was the icing on top of our vacation!!! Would highly recommend!!!!!


Amazing tour!!! Captain Chandler showed us a wonderful time. He was very friendly and informative. He took us to places where we could see dolphins and sea turtles. We actually saw ALOT of dolphins and turtles! He took us to a shallow spot where my granddaughters could actually touch the bottom so they could snorkel and they had a blast. They saw crabs and bunch of sand dollars. He even snorkellwd as well and collected some shells and dead sand dollars for my granddaughters to take. We all had an amazing time and will book again on future trips.


My best friend and I were looking for something fun to do while in pcb. We liked that the tour was private which would be great for families with kids or even couples. Justin was our guide that made us feel safe being that the ocean can be intimidating. The whole tour is personalized to your liking. Justin was very knowledgable with the area. We got to see plenty of dolphins and even jump in with them. Honestly wish the tour was longer but truly believe that the guide made the whole trip!!! Thank you justin!!


The experience of the boat ride was awesome!! Captain Chandler was amazing he was such a nice guy and answered all our questions!! I would recommend him as a Captain for sure!! He was very knowledgeable about the water and everything around it!!
