Great trip. Kids enjoyed boat ride and had fun watching dolphins.
Overall, very good experience and a pleasant team. We got caught by thunderstorms and lightning after 40 minutes and had to return to the marina. They offered a free replacement trip to compensate which was very nice of them.
I thought we would have seen more dolphins . It seemed like you knew exact where they were and waited until the end of the trip to take us to that location. It was an enjoyable trip and a fair price. Only problem was parking. Which is out of your control!
The crew was great and we were able to sea dolphin's. My daughter got some really awesome pictures of the dolphins. Thank you!!!!
We did get to see a dolphin, but we were back at the pier in an hour. I expected a longer trip.
Great ride. Didn't see dolphins until pretty much very end. Saw a mama dolphin and her baby following us right before we came back, which was amazing! Recommendation: tell folks in advance when booking online that if they want to buy the picture of their family, they need to bring cash!
The crew was very friendly and tried to find dolphins though this wasn‘t as easy due to the rough winds and the waves. We loved the tour anyway. Thank you.
The guides were great! They both were very knowledgeable about the dolphins. We only saw 3, so they are taking care of us by offering a free trip. That to me is amazing customer service! Thank you!!
Reservation process easy and accurate. Check in was great. People on board were informative, friendly, and great. Saw couple of dolphins and three manatees. Boat was low enough to water to get fantastic view. Could not ask for better.
Fun, Fun. Fun...Great Capt and mate...info...lots of dolphins...
The right number of people for the size of boat, fantasticly skilled and friendly crew, lovely family photograph too. I knew from TripAdvisor it would be a great trip, and all five of us had our expectations exceeded. Good to get a marina car permit too. Thanks to you all for making our Clearwater trip a memorable one. Marcel
Well it was only one hour and we we're like done after seeing just a few dolphins. Would have liked a longer time. People working on the boat were amazing and super nice to talk with.
My family had a great time.
We've done the tour 3 times previous to this one, and we felt there was a lot less commentary compared to the past.
We had a blast! Great tours, and awesome dolphin viewing! I couldn't believe how many we saw, jumping right next to the boat, for several minutes!
Super fun! Super awesome! Totally worth going!!!
Friendly staff/crew. Saw tons of dolphins. Wish the boat had a bit more shaded areas though. Sun was very hot.
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Plus we spotted dolfines!!
The crew was fun and informative. We saw a lot of dolphins, swimming in our wake and all over the bay.
Wish we had seen more Dolphins, but you have no control over that. Your crew is kind, knowledgeable and fun!
Great trip. Guys entertaining and we saw dolphins. Little disappointed we were only out for an joe compared to the 90 minutes expected.
Little Toot is a lovely boat sitting low in the water for a really good and close view should dolphins be spotted. The tour was not overbooked so there was plenty of room for everyone to see. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable, giving information about the area as well as the dolphins. We were lucky enough to have dolphins ride along with the boat. It was an uplifting and thoroughly enjoyable experience and very well worth doing. Thank you Little Toot and the crew.
My wife wanted to see a lot of dolfins and we did!! it was a great time!!
The crew was amazing they really catered to us. On the way out of the channel we saw Dolphins right away including a mama and a youth. Just a couple minutes later for the route we had a mama and a real little baby jumping in our wake. We got great pictures and had a blast. Thank you so much Lillte Toot staff for making our day great.
A lovely outing. A mother and calf began following the boat almost immediately and played with us for a good ten minutes. The crew was knowledgeable and instructive and we had a great time! Can’t beat the value for the fun we had. Multiple thumbs up for Little Toot!
Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dave and Jeff were both very personable. For such a reasonable amount, you not only saw the dolphins but enjoyed a beautiful ride and scenery. Would definitely come again!
We were able to see dolphins but our boat was very crowded and the dolphins were on the opposite side from us every single time, so we never got really good looks. It would’ve been nice to know which side they usually appear on and if it’s always the same side, to have people move around so everyone can have a turn. This is a fun tour, with a great staff—just wish we could’ve had a better view.
Great little dolphin adventure on the Little Toot. We enjoyed the time - and having the dolphins swim alongside us - very much!
Nice people! Informative! Saw dolphins! Who could ask for more?
Crew was AWESOME and we saw so many dolphins!!!!
