FUN FUN FUN! We had company from Oregon visiting for a few days. It was a beautiful Florida day for a cruise. Informative and very enjoyable. Lots of pictures and memories.
The actual experience was great, but having seen other people's videos on Facebook I was a little disappointed with the dolphins that we saw! Of course I understand it's just the luck on the day, but would have liked to have seen more dolphins.
Will and Misty were great, saw plenty of dolphins and caught a glimpse of a turtle!
As advertised,very friendly crew,we even saw the dolphins
We read all the reviews and these guys sounded the best, the trip was outstanding, we saw so many dolphins including calves, other boats were following us and photographing our scenes, our 2 hosts were so knowledgeable and approachable the trip was a dream, thanks so much Little Toot from 8 guys from Chelmsford
Friends told us about
Guys were very friendly and got everyone excited when dolphins were sited. Dolphins got very close to the boat and was exciting for the kids to watch
We only stayed a very short time in the bay where all the dolphins were. That time we spent cruising along the pond inside wasn't very interesting.
Fab crew made every effort to enable us to see the dolphins. Would recommend Little Toot to anyone!
The best ride in the whole Clearwater boat tour ,they will actually stop ,look and get close to the dolphins my kids love it.
Was een geweldig boot tour en dolfijnen waten geweldig
Small group. Friendly guides and lots of Dolphins.
What an experience!! We saw countless dolphins and your crew was perfect - wouldn't change a thing. Class act.
Little Toot was a Hoot! Captain and Mate made the boat ride a fun experience! Saw lots of dolphins! Even a dolphin with it's calf. Would recommend Little Toot to anyone seeking a cool outing!
Wonderful trip. Ship was just a little to crowded but overall we loved it.
Was nice! Saw dolphins going out would have been nice to see more coming back in! Overall was a good boat ride and got see a few dolphins chase boat
Little Toot NEVER fails to come thru with a totally wonderful trip for locals and visitors alike! When I have friends/family in town, a ride on Little Toot is a must-do for us! Thank you for yet again more great memories!!
Awesome crew, my wife, daughter, and I enjoyed our dolphin tour a lot. Strongly recommend going out with the little toot.
This was a great hour. Saw dolphins up close as they actually liked swimming near the waves the boat made. The only negative was the fumes from the boat were strong when we weren't going fast
We only saw two dolphins so I was disappointed but so was the crew. I was told I can go again, free, within a year which is excellent. I enjoyed the boat ride and will go again.
Smaller vessel. More personal and less commercial experience.
Would have liked to have heard a little more information from the tour guide about Dolphins, the area, etc. Otherwise, they did a good job!!!
We had been on this boat before - years ago. It was much better. More historical information from the guide and i believe it was of longer duration. Except during the dolphin sitings, the tour guide was pretty silent.
Absolutely fantastic. I cannot express how brilliant the experience was. It was the cheapest one on the pier, they were friendly and the trip was a small group and not over crowded. I have been on similar trips all over the world but this was perfect. My 6 year old daughter described it as the highlight of her life, even better than magic kingdom! ! Thanks for the trip I intend to return in a couple of years
The crew was great and very interactive. We only saw 2 dolphins, which is why we were a little disappointed.
Ride was nice but not overly informative. We saw three dolphins jump in wake of boat but neither boat captain nor helper seemed to be interested in looking for other dolphins. After seeing the dolphins in the first 20 mins, it was just a boat ride. No dolphin sightings/nor looking for any. Other boat rides in the area are more informative and actively look for the dolphins as they cruise in the gulf and the estuary.
Dolphins were spotted almost immediately we left the harbour area and gave a dazzling display of acrobatics in the wake of Little Toot. The crew had a good knowledge of the local area and pointed out several points of general interest on our journey. More Dolphins were encountered but without the brilliant interplay we had with the first pod. All in all an excellent trip and certainly value for money. This was our third trip on Little Toot over the past three years and is certainly worth the drive over from Orlando.
It would have been a great 5 stars if the staff wouldn't have made fun of my error behind my back. Thanks.
We saw one dolphin, as promised, and he jumped by the boat in its wake for several minutes. It would be a fun boat ride, even if dolphins weren't encountered... but I'm not complaining! Crew was very considerate after a rained-out ride and moved us to a trip the next day with no difficulty.
You can't get any closer to the water as dolphins body surf next to the boat. The low deck gave a great view for my 3 and 4 year old kids. Very friendly two man crew that knew how to find dolphins at play.
Love that we got to see dolphins jumping beside the boat! I appreciate that the crew really put in the time and effort to make sure we got that experience. The only thing I'd like to see is fewer people on each boat - it felt very crowded at times, making it hard to see the dolphins or find a seat (or something to hold on to, when the boat was rocking). Otherwise, a great experience.
Great staff, friendly easy and affordable & the deliver what they promise dolphins!!
Had a wonderful time. Was able to see a spectacular dolphin show in the wild!
