This grand dad had a great family experience today touring dolphin habitat off Anna Maria Island with Captain Ben who is experienced, knowledgeable and friendly. Ben’s boat was modern and comfortably accommodated our group of seven. It’s my pleasure to recommend Salty Dolphin Tours.

Hi Chuck, when you get to town give us a call and we will put you on the list. We need six people to go but that time of the year it should not be a problem.
