Relaxing nice cruise
The dolphin sightseeing was fulfilled and exceeded our expectations. The tour guide is knowledgeable about the area. The customer service was excellent and the atmosphere in the short time we were aboard was friendly. The price for the fare is also a reasonable price, not as expensive as the rest. I highly recommend Pier Dolphin Cruise to anyone who wants to see the Tampa Bay area and its wildlife.
Friendly informative crew, plenty to see
Very informative Captain and a pleasure to talk to.
We saw so many dolphins! It was such a great experience
Lovely day on the water. The guide, Captain was humerus and knowledgeable. Made an extra effort to follow a pair of dolphins, at slow speed.
We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the dolphins playing around the boat. The crew were very friendly and nice.
I was so pleased with everything and everyone! Fun for my family and my children.. felt extremely safe at all times. The weather was perfect captain and co captain were friendly and knowledgeable.
The captain was very knowledgeable and his first mate really knew how to find the dolphins. We enjoyed it immensely!
great time on the boat, very fun.
We enjoyed the tour and commentary that Captain Fred provided.
Very enjoyable trip.
Simply because we were told we would see dolphins, that they would swim and jump in the wake, and they did. I made a full two minute video of them and watched them myself for a lot longer. So they must have stayed with us over five minutes. Capt Fred and crew were very relaxed, helpful and polite with one and all. A very enjoyable experience.
Had a wonderful time yesterday on this dolphin cruise. Our 4 and 7 year old had a great time!
Everyone was great. Seen lots of sites an some dolphins. The background on the area by Captain was great. Would differently do it again with grandkids. Thank you for making my Mom's 82nd birthday great.
The captin of this cruise is the best tour guide. I recommened it to everyone!!!
We had an amazing time on this cruise! Captain Fred was very informative and knowledgeable and did not disappoint with his guarantee that we would see dolphins! Would highly recommend!
The cruise was great and we were happy to see the dolphins cruising along side the boat w us. Captain Jack was a great narrator and pointed out many historical landmarks that made our cruise more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend anyone wanting a relaxing, entertaining, and fun dolphin cruise to check out Pier Dolphin Cruises
Captain and crew did an amazing job. Found dolphins and gave a great tour.
The captain and his crew were friendly and accomadating, the tour lasted approxiamately two hours and was interesting to hear about and see some of St. Petersburg. The captain also let the kids take turns at the wheel toward the end of the tour. we didnt see as many dolphins as we were hoping for for but the captain gave a us free passes for another outing to make up for it.
Captain Fred was great! He went out of his way to find us dolphins. We enjoyed the cruise and all the information provided to us about the St. Petersburg area. Highly recommend
Saw beautiful dolphins right at the front of the boat! Felt like I could touch them! Amazing celebrity homes tour plus a great history of St Pete. Overall was unforgettable and plan on doing this one anytime family or friends are in town.
Dolphins are very tricky and love to hide, but Fred made every attempt to make sure we got exactly what we paid for - dolphin sightings! ; )
We were hoping to to see more dolphins. The storm rolling in didn't help.
Since we did not have dolphins on the 1st trip they let us come back & my grandchildren were so excited to see them on the 2nd trip. Thank you

The ship wasn't crowded. We were able to move all around the ship without trouble. It turned out to be a very nice day to be on the water. 2 hours on the water at that price is very reasonable. Also the online booking feature was very convenient. I was able to do it on my phone while on the road towards downtown St. Pete.
Very knowledgeable, local, small business owner that has a desire to have a successful outing for each participant. The Captain and the crew were a pleasure to cruise with.
Excellent captain. Family enjoyed seeing the dolphins in its natural environment. Kids loved being able to drive the boat. Will definitely be back. Submitted from vacationers from Indiana.
Staff was very nice and accommodating. We had 2 young boys with us and they went out of their way to make sure they had a good time.
The lady who assisted the captain was very helpful and the captain was very entertaining.
We really enjoyed this cruise. Loved that the boat was covered and that we only had about 15 passengers. We saw dolphins as promised. For the length of the tour (nearly 2 hours), it was a really great value. The captain was friendly, easy-going and knowledgeable.
