Captian Paul and his shipmate Stephanie were a delight. The Shark boat is the way to go. Captain Paul knew where to find the dolphins and Stephanie and him told us all about the small herd. A few of the Dolphins followed the boat and were jumping and playing. I got amazing pictures and we met some lovely people on the tour. I have this saved to be able to come back next time we are in town. It is couple friend, kid and family friendly. Side note...they are byob for now but have snacks and soda on board for about $3 each. Bring cash for tips and food. ENJOY!

Really fun outing with nice crew on fun shark boat. We were very lucky to get dolphins tailing us for 10 minutes. It was exhilarating to watch them and captain did good job lining up boat to get them to follow. An hour was plenty as it was our two year old’s first boat ride. They did great with young kids and even stored our stroller during the trip.

The hubby thought we were going to see Sharks! It's the Shark Boat looking for dolphins. The crew was great and knew where to find the dolphins and get them to swim alongside the boat in the motor current. They were jumping, racing, and flipping - lots of fun for adults and kids.

This is so well worth your time! So much fun and inexpensive. We saw lots of dolphins all jumping out of the water swimming next to the boat. The guys who do the tour are entertaining and really knowledgeable. Great for kids and adults.

Awesome trip. Obviously they can’t control the marine life but having the boat they do get the dolphins jumping certainly made it worth it. They try to get em jumping and they definitely did respond. The tour around the bay is neat and a nice way to break up the day whether you see anything or not. Boat does look a bit dated and weathered, which did not deter us at all.

My husband and I wanted to experience seeing some sharks in the Florida waters, so we decided to take a tour on the Shark Boat as John's Pass. I was disappointed that we did not see any sharks or dolphins, however that is not the fault of the boat company as it cannot be guaranteed that you will see any fish, however I did feel that the price was way to high for an hour cruise, we are both seniors and military and received a discount when we purchased the passes, at $47.00 I wasn't impressed, but we did the tour but will not do it again on our next trip to John's pass.

This was our last day of vacation & we had some time to kill. We were looking for a small boat ride. The Shark Boat offered 1 hour bay cruises. The boat is located at John’s Pass Boardwalk. We were able to reserve tickets work in an hour of departure. This boat was fun as it’s shaped like a shark. The captain & his assistant were very nice. The boat ride includes a narrated cruise around the bay where you see dolphins, birds, celebrity homes & historical landmarks. This is a great family adventure. They allow you to bring drinks onto the boat & there is even a bathroom.
I really enjoyed this shark boat cruise. Definitely worth an hour of your time.
