Highly recommend this. I did this cruise about three years ago and again last week. We had multiple dolphins, including baby ones, coming right up beside the boat many times. It's also a great tour of some of the multi-million dollar houses along the waters.

Captain Jon and Claudia were awesome, they made the trip interesting and funny. We saw lots of dolphins, more than I expected! And two babies! Also saw a stingray. The boat ride was so much fun, definitely with the money.

We have gone on a tour once per year for the last 3 years. It has always been a great time. This time there were dolphins everywhere. Capt. Greg does a great job of narrating. Would recommend to anyone.

Nice cruise of Johns Pass and Boca Ciega Bay. Saw tons of dolphins and babies up close! Staff friendly. It was cold when my family went in November but they had blankets on board. They also have drinks for purchase on board.

Two adults and two teenagers had a great time. We took the 4pm ride. We got up close to several small pods of dolphins and got lots of good pictures. Once we picked up speed, it was nice to just ride with the breeze blowing.

Although difficult to find at first, we eventually found parking and the dock in time for our reserved cruise. The crew were fun and knowledgeable. We saw a lot of dolphins and enjoyed the interesting commentary on the houses and points of interest.

The website suggests booking in advance, but we booked the morning of with no problems. We took our 4 yr old and she really liked it. I think she would've been scared of those pirates. LOL

We were on the 4pm cruise (before the time change) and seen tons of dolphin as soon as the boat pulled from the dock. I can't believe in all the trips to that boardwalk we had never seen them before. Maybe we just didn't... More
