Give top marks to Captain Corman for this trip. The dolphins 🐬 chased our ⛵️ boat as we raced across the water. He really new where to find them and even got them into a chase. This was our best boat ⛵️ tour yet, and only $25.00 each. Don't pass up this special trip.

11am dolphin cruise to Pine Island and we had a terrific time. Extremely friendly Captain who made sure that our young son got to see plenty of dolphins. Boat is covered so no worries about being in the sun. Would definitely recommend if you want to see the Dolphins up close.

I chose this boat because I was taking my mother. It was perfect! Covered boat, great captain, never went real fast, and we saw lots of dolphins! Would definitely recommend. It's not over crowded so you can move around too. Great deal for the money!!!

Hubby and I went on an 11 a.m. trip. There were 11 people on board and the boat was very comfortable especially being covered. The captain took us out under the causeway into Tarpon Bay and then near Pine Island to look for dolphins. We liked that he really wanted the dolphins to come close not just for the adults... More

7 of us took a dolphin cruise on Friday 7/16 and were not disappointed. My granddaughter took an 11 minute video of 4 or 5 dolphin riding the waves behind the boat. They got so close we could almost touch them. There was a baby dolphin playing with us too! We saw a large group of sting rays and several... More

Initial inquiry by phone before our trip was very unpleasant but based on reviews of others and reading more about Stars & Stripes decided to stick with it. Covered and clean boat. Felt safe whole time in the boat, friendly guide, plenty of dolphins were seen and even some rays and one shark!

This was exactly what I was hoping for. The boat is the perfect size and has cover. The captain was so nice, friendly and knowledgable. He'd spot dolphins so far away and bring us right to them it was amazing. We had a very, very long time of multiple dolphins in the wake and along side diving, jumping and playing.... More

I chose this cruise after reading other reviews. It was priced lower than some of the competitors. The boat was covered which helped us enjoy the breeze without the brutality of the sun. We saw lots of dolphins and because it was a smaller boat, it almost felt like we could reach out and touch them. This was a great... More
