Drove south from Miami to swim with the dolphins. Lovely drive to Duck Key. We were lucky to be the only customers this day as sub tropical storm Alberto had passed through the day before and things were quiet, which was great for us. Very...More

I have always wanted to have an up close encounter with dolphins. This was an amazing experience! I learned about them, about the ocean environment, and the importance of doing my part to help protect them and other marine life.

We stopped in to experience Dockside Dolphins and it did not disappoint. The staff was friendly, professional and accommodating. The hands-on experience from the dockside kept the two boys attention. They really enjoyed the time with the dolphins.
