Hands down the coolest most rewarding experience. You get so close to these wild dolphin and to see the entire pod of 15+ with babies and all sizes is incredible. You will swallow a lot of sea water due to the jaw dropping encounters. I will be back every time I go down. Bring an under water camera!

In addition to swimming with the dolphins, the visit to Shell Island was well worth the trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

It was a wonderful experience. Sydney and Captain Eddie were very knowledgeable, patient, helpful, and fun. They made the experience of swimming with dolphins both educational and fun. I highly recommend it for children of all ages and adults of all ages.

When coming across things to do while on vacation this website came up. In my head I pictured going out to the ocean and swimming around waiting for dolphins to come out and swim by. Our captain drove around until we saw dolphins and we would jump in. When they swam away we would go off to find more. We... More

Wonderful trip. Swam with at least 40 dolphins. They came to us all day. Extremely knowledgeable captain Eddie and Sydney took excellent care of us. Such a personalized experience with the Dolphins and the crew. It's a 4 hour tour, bring your underwater camera (if you have one). I promise that you will have a hard time getting the smile... More

We took a 4 hour tour and there really aren't words to describe how amazing the trip was thanks to Eddie. We swam with dolphins and the manatees. Captain Eddie got in the water to snorkel and showed us all kinds of ocean life. It was the experience of a lifetime!! I would do it again!

Aks for Eddy, he is the best and takes time to ensure you have 100% interaction and swim with Dolphins, the 4 hour trip will be memorable and make sure you take underwater camera or bring someone else who can stay on the boat to take pics for you.
