I am so glad we decided to book this trip with Dolphin Family Tours. Captain Russ was friendly and knowledgeable and the boat was clean and comfortable. We had multiple dolphins come near our boat which was really fun for all ages. To make it even better, there were no crowds like everywhere else in the area (especially on spring break) since it was just our group of six! I would gladly go again and again!

What a great time, Captain Russ was the best. He texted me to come a little early so we could watch the launch and we saw more dolphins then we ever have before. Russ also had all the answers to our questions about the river and the dolphins.The boat was super comfortable and having just my family on board was the best. Will definitely use this tour again and will tell everyone how great it was. Thanks again to Russ and your company. Dave

Our captain was great and very friendly. We were able to see tons of dolphins up close. The island was a packed but we were still able to anchor in the sand bar and get out and enjoy the water. We had a great time.

We had such a great experience with captain Russ! He was so nice and fun to talk to. We got to see the dolphins up close and went to an island with no one else on it, where we collected the prettiest seashells! After the tour was over he even walked us over to where there was manatees which we got to see very well. Amazing experience!
