┐Explore the diverse ecosystems of the Key West National Marine Sanctuary and the Great White Heron National Refuge of the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico & Backcountry habitat.

┐Observe the abundance of marine life as you snorkel shallow patch reefs, local wrecks, shallow sand bars... array of tropical fish, rays, sea turtles, sponge gardens, lobsters, crabs, lush sea grass beds, soft corals and more...

┐Explore the backcountry mangrove island habitats & uninhabited beaches - mangrove isles. tidal creeks ...the nursery & breeding habitat for many of the reef species.

┐Observe the diverse population of resident bird species - osprey, bald eagles, a variety of heron's, ibis, egret, cormorants and more...


Dolphin encounters are based on respect, communication, trust and are sensitive to the natural activities of the dolphins. We are committed to preservation of the marine environment, backcountry ecosystem and dolphin habitat.

We have an exceptionally high success rate of dolphin encounters, however, due to the nature of a wild encounter, we do not guarantee a dolphin encounter.

As a founding member and co-director of the Florida Keys Wild Dolphin Alliance I have pledged my commitment to comply with the FKWDA code of conduct & guidelines based on the ┐Marine Mammal Protection Act┐ which prohibits harassment, taking and feeding of dolphins

Dear Sheri,
Thank you for one of the greatest spiritual experiences. It was great to swim in the 'dolphin playground'.

Dear Captain Sheri Sullenger,
Just wanted to let you know how glad we are that the concierge at the Wicker House booked our dolphin trip with 'WILD about DOLPHINS'. We had a wonderful time with your partner 'Capt. Miles'. Stan was personable, knowledgable and committed to a respectful trip experience.. We admire the policy that you and Stan have set for dolphin excursions with 'WILD about DOLPHINS'. Of course, with the amount of time we were able to spend in the water around the dolphins on our first trip may lead to unreasonable high expectations on the next 'WILD about DOLPHINS' trip. Thanks Again.

Sincerely,

Jack & Jennifer MacDonough


Sheri,

Fondly,

Gloria
