We had the best time on this diverting dolphin tour. Our guide was extremley nice and knowledgable. We had a little harder time finding some dolphins due to a lot of boat traffic to the previous weekend but the captain made sure we found them and were able to see them from up close. We‘ll definitley be back to St.Pete and do this tour again! Thank you Salty Water Tours for this unforgettable experience!

Keep in mind dolphins are wild animals. It is also ilegal to feed them in FL to prevent them to become dependable on humans. They go to St Pete bays to feed usually. It took us almost 2 hr to find the dolphins , but the captain was very patient and took extra time to search for them. He was experiences so he knew where to look. I would recommend using some sunblock, hats do help but they might flight off, the bait can go very fast. It is better to record the dolphins using video, since they are fast and can hold their breath from long, it is very hard to snap a pic of them. Overall it was a great experience, highly recommend it for couples

Such an amazing experience with my young family! Highly recommended. We saw lots of dolphins and birds, and Emily told some wonderful stories about the area and wildlife. Our boys were entertained and loved every moment. Super fun, very comfortable, smooth boat ride, and one of the highlights of our vacation!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dolphin tour. Emily was so knowledgeable about the area’s native birds and dolphins. It was only an hour and a half, so it was a perfect activity if you’re only here for a short vacation. We spotted lots of dolphins, including some babies! Lots of fun!

They know where to find the dolphins!!! Rob and Emily are wonderful hosts! Emily has a narrative about the birds, dolphins and ecosystem that is just the right amount of education and fun! We had a great time on their spacious, comfortable boat and plan to do it again!

One of the best experiences ever! We had 5 dolphins playing around our boat. So cool! Our 3.5 year old boys loved it and so did we! Emily was a fun and wonderful guide. Highly recommended!

Very informative, so much fun! Saw plenty of dolphins and birds, and got to find shells on a little island.

Can't say enough great things about this tour. These two are so passionate about what they do and it shows. They took us out on their smaller boat even when they didn't have enough people to take a group tour. We were lucky enough to see several large groups of dolphins, on top of learning more about the area and it's other wildlife.
