Lots of dolphins that day

We saw multiple pods of dolphins throughout the cruise. Very relaxing and well worth the money.

Enjoyed a perfect sunset ride and saw some dolphins. Price was right. Gift shop took a bit to locate for voucher, but everything went smooth. Beer available to purchase. Bring a light jacket for evening. Only change would be that there was a mixture of tunes rather than country the entire ride.

Everything was absolutely perfect, minus the lack of mixed music. They had country on the entire time, which I imagine most may like. I prefer when it is a bit of everything, not one particular genre.

I had an absolute blast! The crew are helpful and informative. And the views of the lovely homes…top notch. Plus, we got to see two dolphins. A momma and baby.

Fantastic sunset / dolphin cruise. We watched a great group of 4 dolphins. Captain Steve did a great job navigating and anticipating where they would pop up next. I was so impressed when Kirsten was able to identify two of the dolphins. We just had brief glimpses of their dorsal fins. Kirsten is so knowledgeable and I learned a lot of about dolphins. Ending the tour with a great view of sunset was terrific.

My kids and I had a great time. The weather was amazing for the trip. We didn’t see any dolphins, but everyone on the trip was given a free voucher for another day. We plan on using ours for the sunset cruise.

Captain Jeff & Kirsten did a great job, Kirsten was a dolphin trainer at sea-world and knows really everything about dolphins, we not only had a great trip but also learned a lot, like that a Killer Whale is actually not a whale but a large dolphin species and more. they also showed us some cool waterfront mansions and have drinks on board should you want one. Great Tour, highly recommended! Karen & Hardy.

Dolphin Quest is a must do for families! We booked this last minute on the 4th of July to squeeze in some fun before TS Elsa swings by for a visit. It did not disappoint! The guys running the boat were super friendly and did a great job of tracking the dolphins so we could see as many as possible. We were able to see several different pods of dolphins along the trip. The boat ride to Boca Ciega was very relaxing and enjoyable. We would highly recommend for families. They do accept tips so be sure to take some extra cash! Note: parking is limited near this attraction. Give yourself plenty of time to find parking. There is a garage behind Hooters and I would recommend parking there. The roads are very narrow and there isn’t much street parking available.
