We really enjoyed the dolphins and the friendliness of the staff.
I would have liked to hear more about the Clearwater area and little toots history in the dolphin business. Aside from this it was an amazing tour!
Being a smaller boat you really feel close to the dolphins when they appear. It didn't feel so commercial. We've been before and no doubt will go again at some point. Very enjoyable.
The crew were awesome and it was so much fun to see dolphins in their natural setting.
Friendly staff, we were able to see the dolphins several times during our 1.5 hour tour.
The boat ride was spectacular!! We enjoyed Sherri and our Captain Dave. The sitings of the dolphins took our breath away. One suggestion would be to let the purchaser know on the tickets about the parking policy. I ended up dropping my family off to check in and was not aware that parking passes were available for purchase. I ended up leaving the lot and then having to pay $30 for flat rate parking as many pay and display lots were full. As a result of having to park so far away I had to literally run to get to the boat to make the cruise even though we had arrived 45 minutes prior to launch...
This was our third trip on the Little Toot and it was the best so far. Thank you
Boat was a little to crowded so it was to hard to see .
The ride was very enjoyable, we saw dolphins swimming very near the boat and that was amazing! I didn't expect to see them that close to the boat! We plan to come again! Thanks very much!
Fun Experience but thought that it was going to be 1.5 hours.
What a great little Dolphin adventure! This is our second visit and it is always beyond expectations. What a fun time for the adults and children, a perfect escape. We will be back! Thanks!
Seeing the dolphins jump was very enjoyable . However, it was a bummer that we couldn’t get close tot he dolphins when they were just swimming in the channels and the other boats were able to get close first. But overall, it was a good ride
Amazing experience! Must have seen 10-12 different dolphins! Highlight of our trip! Highly recommended for families
Cute boat, fantastic dolphines and awsome guide. Perfect for families!
The Little Toot crew was funtastic! It certainly helped that we had gorgeous weather but that aside, the whole experience was well worth the dollars spent. We came home with lots of photos, videos and memories. The dolphins were very cooperative for our tour, as I am sure they are for most !
Such a great time on the little toot! Highly recommended! Will definitely make another trip!
We never got too close to the dolphins to cause them discomfort, but maintained a respectful distance. They ended up surfing in our wake and were clearly enjoying themselves! I thought it was a great balance of being mindful that these are still animals in the wild, as well as major tourist attractions.
Our Girls loved getting so close to the Dolphins in the wake of the boat. Great trip!
The crew were the best!
Great dolphin sighting - they were following the boat, jumping and perform all manner of tricks for our delight. As the aft end is low in the water they appeared really close which made for a very exciting experience.
It was such wonderful experience for the whole family! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating! Thanks Little Toot!
Freezing and only one dolphin for 30 seconds after 2 1/2 hours on boat with obnoxious kids falling on me other than that crew was cool and we're persistent in finding the dolphin
Awesome crew, nice boat ( not to many people, enough space for everyone, also to watch the dolphins) We had a really nice time, was absolutely worth driving three hours from Orlando to experience this! Thanks again
Crew was fantastic!!!
Wonderful time!! Only other thing that would have made it perfect would have been to see dolphins.
Great captain and tour guide! We saw dolphins and the captain ensured the best sightings.
The two people running the Tour wete very professional and informative
We had some amazing dolphin sightings. The staff were very informative
The crew was very friendly and the experience was great, Thank you
It was a beautiful experience my friends and I will never forget seeing the dolphins up close and in their natural habitat! More people need to do this rather than go to Sea World! :)
The crew was very friendly and engaging. They were as excited as we were to see the dolphins. We would highly recommend it.
The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. The fact we got to see dolphins was the icing on the cake.
