Great sailing experience - two hours on the water seeing no dolphins is better than two hours NOT on the water. Staff were great. My only issue is that I booked for a party of 7 and two individuals could not make it...but those spots are prepaid and non-refundable. Therefore, instead of enjoying my afternoon fully, I am bummed about the $80 plus tax ($90) I just wasted. Reserving - great - Prepaying - not great whatsoever.
Captain Glenn and Lacey friendly.
Great trip and wonderful staff! Would do it again.
One of the best times we've had in a while! Capt Randall and Joe were outstanding. They were very attentive and did their best to ensure we enjoyed our cruise and saw as many dolphins as we could spot. They were very approachable and helpful and even let my sons steer which they loved. I highly recommend the Dolphin Landings dolphin cruise.
Just when we thought there was no dolphins We seen 5 dolphins. Captain cecil was awesome
We have taken this trip on three vacations now and are never disappointed. The boat is beautiful and we have seen dolphins every time. The staff is friendly and witty and make this an ideal addition to anyone’s trip.
We are sailors with our own boat and taking the Dolphin Watch trip seemed like the best sailing experience we could get without chartering a boat just to go sailing. Wanted to see more sails used but understood that the main reason was to see dolphins. It would be nice if you could offer a "sailing trip" (if the winds are up) to go out into Tampa Bay with all the sails up. Perhaps allow some of the passengers to take a hand at the wheel or even lend a hand with the sails. We sail in the Chesapeake Bay and there are a pair of schooners, Woodwind one and two, that take passengers out just for a sail and occasionally they even see dolphins. It's a nice two hour trip with stories about the area and the passengers are allowed to "crew" if they want. I realize that this sort of trip might not be that popular in St Pete's since most people aren't interested in sailing but maybe it is to some. Either way we had a good time and the crew, especially Captan Tom were great.
We had a great time. Susi and Joe were very nice and informative. We only saw one dolphin on this tour but got to follow it for awhile and since we were on the sailboat it felt unintrusive to quietly tag along behind him. Just a really unique experience. We learned a lot about the area and a tiny bit about sailing. We will definitely return!!!
It is a pretty nice tour. Though it is high windy, we also saw the dolphins.
Very kindly held the trip for us as we struggled to arrive due to traffic coming from Polk County.
Jack and Sydney rocked! Very funny and laid back. I wish the wind would have cooperated so we could have sailed more. Very enjoyable.
Didn't see any dolphins, but it was a nice ride.
It was the perfect experience! The weather was great, the boat was clean and in great shape. Captain Jack was awesome, friendly and knowledgeable! We also saw lots of dolphins! I’d recommend your tour to everyone!
Captain Cecil was amazing! Such a fun time!!
We saw many dolphins, as expected. The trip was relaxing & so much fun getting to do a bit of sailing. The boat captains were very nice & made the trip even more enjoyable!
Ben & Joe the captains were very nice and accommodating! Really knowledgeable dolphins! They also recommended some other fun things to do in the area which was helpful.
Great quiet sunny day on the water. Nice pilots, But could have given a little more narrative about dolphins And surroundings.
What could be bad about a lovely sailboat, great crew, a breeze in the sails and leisurely trip to see the dolphins and baby stingrays?
Great sail, beautiful water, Clint and Cindy were extremely fun and knowledgeable. Just a perfect day and we followed 4 dolphins.
Extremely satisfied! We saw countless dolphins, had an amazing experience, and were completely thrilled with our experience. Captain Tom and his crew were full of information and gave us a phenomenal cruise.
Captain and crew knowledgeable and professional. Really fun activity.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time with Dolphin Landings. This was our first time on a sailboat and it was amazing. The crew was great and interacted well with all aboard including our children. Next time we are in the area we will definitely book another trip. In fact, if we had gone on this trip earlier in the week then I would have book another trip in the same week.
Extremely fun, knowledgeable, nice, and would do it again!!
We had an excellent trip on the Phoenix with Cecil and his helper! Wonderful sailing and dolphin experience!
