I’ve taken his tour, 3 times now. He never disappoints. We have seen 3 or 4 pods of dolphin every time. He makes the trip so much fun and very educational. I recommend him to all my friends.

Gary was our captain and he was amazing we seen like 13 dolphins and one jumped right on the side of the boat and was swimming with us. I now have more love for the open waters thanks to Gary.

Had a wonderful day on the water with Captain Gary who made us truly appreciate the beautiful waters of Key West! We saw lots of dolphins and manatees and truly enjoyed ourselves! Would highly recommend this if you visit Key West!

I took my two daughters (10 and 12) on the sunset cruise. We saw a ton of dolphins and the snorkeling was fantastic. Captain Zak was laid back, fun and very informative. The boat was small (in a good way) and there were only five...More

I personally wouldn’t recommend it. It’s kind of a small boat so somewhat rough with the waves. Not smooth like on a larger boat.
