“Phenomenal dolphin experiences and genuinely wonderful crew! Thanks for a spectacular week!!”

Grace Zorn-Toburen, Philadelphia, PA

“After hearing a friend share her experiences on the Dolphin Dream every year for the past 9 years, I surrendered to the promise of an incredible Summer vacation unmatched by anything I’ve ever done in the past. That promise was kept. I have done many fun and exciting things in my 67 years, from Whitewater rafting to skydiving; none have touched my soul in the way this experience has. Lifelong memories were created in one week of continuous awakenings of my heart and mind. I will only regret having waited 9 years to experience this adventure. I will certainly be returning for more “Dreaming”.”

“Dolphin adventures with Captain Scott and the “Dolphin Dream” have become an annual part of my life for the last 9 years–and this, my 10th year, has not dimmed with time or failed to meet my expectations. Wild dolphins circle me in the water with continuous eye contact and dolphin chatter. And on a truly magical day, a dolphin with that special connection may invite me to touch or even stroke him. Night snorkels capture intensity and excitement as the wild dolphins leap and dive and “zing” and “zang” to hunt for flying fish and squid. What a unique and wondrous experience! Something that I’ve shared with family and friends. If life gets me down, or I’m just having a difficult day, I can always recall these incredible moments to bring a smile to my face. Boat is safe and comfortable; crew experienced, friendly, and capable; and the food is great! Next summer will bring another “wild dolphin adventure”.”

April 2003

“Dear Scott, Travis, Conner and Lib,

the first time I stayed in America and Grand Bahamas.

Thank you very much for alls – this trip was very great and made me very happy. And the dolphins were sooooooo bautiful like a dream …..

on the day and in the night. The first time in my live been the situation to touched a dolphin and it came again and want that I touched him once more.

I want to come back here again.”

Sabine Schoenwald

“My wife and I just got back from the Dream Team experience, after reading the web site I had some expectations about what I would see. We both have encountered dolphins in a enclosed tank, and were trained to perform for the public. But the dolphin dream team out of west palm beach Florida was so well organized and exceeded all our expectations . We had encounters with dolphins every day. Multiple encounters with 3 to 18 dolphins . They also included the night dive which was a real treat. Bright lights brought up squid and flying fish which attracted the dolphins. For me personally the climax was when a dolphin swam around me in circles and let me touch him multiple times. This was a life changing experience for me , there is a connection between man and dolphin that is somehow innate in both our species.”

“Words are not really adequate in describing what happens on this trip. Scott Smith and crew are outstanding in finding the dolphins, helping you in and out of the water, free diving with the dolphins and showing us how to interact. To have a dolphin look you in the eye, swim with you in circles, come up close within centimeters, and every now and then allow you to touch them, is beyond my ability to translate. You will need to book a trip on the dolphin dream for the most amazing interaction with dolphins in their own environment. The boat rides great in rough weather, we had a storm one night with 60 mile an hour winds that I slept through and couldn’t believe that we had been in a big storm. The food was great and we were all very well fed thanks to Gail. Connor and Travis were patient and gracious helping us in and out of the water, free diving down to get the dolphins attention, keeping the boat clean, and the fridge well stocked. I have been to all inclusive that do not even come close to comparison for the soul touching experience you will have being with dolphins every day and in our case three nights. I will be back next year, and will be trying to get all my friends to come along with me.”

“We’ve been on Dive Boats and Dolphin trips for years and this is by far the best boat out there! Captain Scott knows the area, is extraordinarily competent and the crew is very attentive. The boat is very stable, solid and comfortable; our home away from home. And the dolphins….wow. and wow again. photo ops everywhere! We’ll be regulars!”

“This is our first trip to the Bahamas & it is on our honeymoon. We’ve enjoyed the trip with you. We are very happy to have met the crew, the other guests & of course……..the Dolphins!!! Thank you very much for your hospitality. We want to come here again!!”
