Au programme

You will meet me at my electric catamaran, Squid, under our HONEST ECO sign. If you do not see a time or date that works for you let me know! I can probably figure something out.
We will depart from the dock located at the Historic Seaport. We will then head out on the water to an area that I know which provides a year round home for about 200 wild Bottlenose Dolphins.
This is my moment to share the wonders of these marine mammals with you, while always operating my vessel in a manner that is safe and respectful of the dolphins and their need for space. With the right know-how I can usually find dolphins in under an hour and in calm waters. After observing the dolphins many different behaviors from the boat we will head to one of my favorite spots to snorkel with sponges, coral heads or a patch reef. I will take you to the best place with the best visibility that day. I'll be your guide, leading you around a calm snorkeling spot and point out animals that make our ecosystem unique and answer any questions that you have.
Other things to note
Check in at the HONEST ECO boat Squid.
The maximum number of guests I have on board is usually around 15 guests. I can take up to 24 guests on a private charter.

I founded and own HONEST ECO. With Kentucky bluegrass roots and a B.S. in Biology, I found a world with a blue sea too alluring to ignore. I arrived to Key West in 2005. Now I have 10+ years of experience studying Biology and being on the water in Key West with the dolphins. I now own a small business, HONEST ECO, with my wife and 2 young kids. we are trying to make a big impact by educating and leading by example. I worked with David Walworth, an MIT educated Naval Architect and Principal Engineer known for his high efficiency catamaran designs to help design and engineer the perfect boat for my guests and the environment. The family, moved west and spent the next year and a half of our lives building SQUID, from scratch! I'm very passionate about being respectful to the dolphins and the environment

This was an awesome experience!!! The staff were so knowledgeable and eager to share information/answer questions. We saw many dolphins. We saw sea turtles swimming as the boat moved in between locations. The snorkeling was easy and fun. The snacks were delicious, fresh, and plentiful. Would do it again.

Very fun experience! We got to see a lot of dolphins and our guides were very knowledgeable about the ocean life we saw. It was a very relaxing experience but we learned a ton. Would highly recommend!

The entire experience was great . I liked the fact that they cared about the environment and actively participated in making a difference by not only cascading the knowledge in how to be mindful towards the aquatic habitat but also went as far as to invest in an electric boat. That shows the extensive passion they have towards the ocean and it’s habitat and beyond. I would absolutely recommend to go out on this excursion with these guys in particular. I feel that this will be an amazing experience for anyone.

Captain John and Marine Biologist, Jesse were awesome! Jesse was educational without being overwhelming, he answered all of our questions and you can tell he is very passionate about his field of study and the Florida Keys! Not to mention the delicious fruit, veggies and humus that he cut up for us on deck! Captain John, did some excellent boat maneuvering throughout the trip. Snorkeling with a Marine Biologist is a must! And our Dolphin sighting was fantastic, you can tell the animals know and respect Squid! We will absolutely be back with Honest Eco!

This was such a great experience! We saw lots of dolphins and a few stingrays, which was magical. Jesse and Brady were so knowledgeable, and you could tell how much they enjoy their job. They were also really funny, which made the experience even better. Recommended this experience to others I met in Key West over the week and will be doing so in the future, too.

Honest Eco is a great company to take a cruise with. Their staff is experienced and well educated. We learned a lot from Jesse that was on both of the cruises we booked. They brought us to gorgeous locations and I couldn't have asked for a better trip.
