Our family of 3 (plus our dog) went out with Captain Shelley this morning. She was so great and we felt like we were on a boat with a friend not just a tour guide. We got to see dolphins & she told us all about the surrounding area. 10/10 would definitely do it again!

Absolutely wonderful tour! We saw several dolphins and a few manatees. It was long enough to be able to sit back and enjoy. Russ was great and knew a lot about the land, animals, and history throughout the tour. We wanted to do it again, it was awesome! I 100% recommend.

We did another family tour with the Dolphin Family Tours. Sunset boat trip was just amazing, breezy and smooth. Sky colors were unbelievable! Captain took us in special locations where we enjoyed the sunset the most. So many dolphins swimming around, truly special experience. Best local fun on the water for a family!
