"We took the dolphin tour. We saw about 20 dolphins! Not only do you get to see dolphins, but captain Jack gives a really nice explanation of a bunch of the areas tourist spots."

"Some friends and I went on one of the Dolphin Watch Cruises earlier this year and we had such a good time. I was planning on coming on here to review them sooner but I am just now getting to it. First of all, it was so extremely beautiful it took my breathe away! But best of all...we saw dolphins! It was pretty much the coolest thing I have ever experienced!"

Rebekah Wallace

"My group did the dolphin tour at Hubbard's. It was awesome! We saw dolphins right off including two baby dolphins! The boat tour included so much more than I expected... the birds were great, the houses were neat, and the guides were really friendly and knowledgeable.  Awesome job, Hubbard's... keep up the good work!"

"Went recently on the Dolphin Watch tour, and in comparison to other dolphin tours in the area (clearwater), this one is the best I've seen so far. The reservation/ticket staff was very nice, they gave us 10% of anything in the store with the purchase of the tickets. The tour guide and boat staff was nice, the boat was clean, and we saw lots of dolphins."
