Tour Summary

Come see wild dolphins in this one of a kind Key West Dolphin Encounter experience. Our Wild Dolphin Encounter tour allows you to view these awesome and smart marine mammals up close. These jubilant creatures have their own unique personalities and you will surely be enchanted by them!

In this tour you will see pods of wild dolphins playing with each other, then you can explore the ocean for yourself. After your dolphin experience, we will transport you to the reefs where you can strap on the snorkeling gear we provide and explore the colorful underwater world of these amazing coral gardens.

The waters on this trip are shallow so you can easily see the various aquatic species swimming throughout the coral reefs. Bring your waterproof camera and snap shots of the many tropical fish, stingrays, sea turtles, sponge gardens, and patch reefs. All you need to take with you on this trip is a swimming suit, towel, and a camera. This tour is 3.5 hours long and refreshments will be provided to you for enjoyment before and after you experience with these beautiful, intelligent marine mammals.

This is a unique opportunity to see dolphins in their natural habitat and doesn't come around often. You can see them play together and then snorkel in the shallow waters of this gorgeous marine wildlife sanctuary. You won't want to miss this chance to have a personal, up close experience with dolphins in the water wonderland of Key West.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Wild Dolphin Encounter and Snorkel is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
