Enjoy a continental breakfast as you sail in search of spinner dolphins, turtles and humpback whales (November through April). Dolphin sightings are guaranteed December through April; in the rare event you do not encounter dolphins, receive a free snorkeling adventure or sunset cocktail cruise. 

The captain moors the boat at a calm snorkeling spot. Listen to a short lesson on the basics of snorkeling if you need it, then don the provided equipment and dive in. Follow your professional snorkeling guide among the coral reefs and colorful schools of tropical fish. 

Climb back into the boat and dig into a delicious deli lunch as the catamaran heads back to shore. The buffet lunch includes two alcoholic drinks.

Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat can be a thrilling experience.  However, we can disturb dolphins’ natural behaviors, such as migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, and sheltering by approaching wild dolphins too closely in vessels; moving vessels too quickly, or making too much noise.  The Dolphin SMART program is a voluntary education program that encourages responsible advertising and viewing of wild dolphins; thereby, minimizing the risk of disrupting their natural behaviors.  You are a steward for wild dolphin conservation by being a Proud Supporter of Dolphin SMART!

Amazing experience! The crew was super nice and authentic. They were young adults, so full of energy and excitement. Tyler offered to take our Go Pro down to the corals to capture footage of sea turtles. Captain Jesse even allowed us to jump off the boat while it was anchored without our gear on. Although the ad is a little misleading, as we thought we could have snorkeled with the dolphins, we still saw so many dolphins and were able to get photos of them. We still saw turtles and ample vibrant fish! This excursion is well worth the $$$. You get breakfast, lunch, and 2 free alcoholic drinks. Everything was delicious. Disclaimer: if you have children, double think about booking, as a child refused to get into the water after we got out there (and after mom and dad paid already, oops). Highly recommend!!

Good experience overall

Great experience. The crew were a mix of friendly and not so friendly folks though. Food and drinks were great! Saw a lot of dolphins and fish. That was obviously the highlight of the trip. Knowledgeable staff. Maybe the only thing lacking were soft skills and teach staff to be equally nice to everyone. Thanks!
Dolphins, turtles, and great fun!

The crew was awesome, the tunes were great, and the whole experience was a total blast. We saw dolphins and learned a bunch about them, and we also got to swim with some sea turtles which was amazing to see them up close and personal. Fantastic tour!
A perfect excursion!

Awesome, knowledgeable crew! Went out to see the dolphins, but not swim with them. The crew respected NOAA’s regulations, but we were able to see the dolphins. Snorkeled along a reef and saw all kinds of fish and 2 sea turtles!! Amazing! Can’t wait to bring our kids with us.

We didn’t know what to expect with dolphins in the wild. The team found pod that we were able to see and it was amazing. The team was very informative on the dolphins. After seeing the dolphins we went to a local reef where we snorkeled and saw so many fish. Would highly recommend
