Meet Captain Sheri Sullenger

“My deep connection and love of the ocean and dolphins for the past two decades led me to Key West to share the wonders of the dolphins with those of you seeking the opportunity to learn, observe these magical mammals in the wild. Not a day or dolphin journey goes by where I am not touched by the presence and grace of observing the dolphin. I deeply appreciate the unique opportunity bestowed upon to me as a facilitator / guide making available the unique opportunity for individuals & groups to personally observe and learn from wild dolphins in their natural habitat.”

Captain Sheri Sullenger owner/operator of Wild About Dolphins, specializes in excursions providing a unique opportunity to observe and learn about wild dolphins in their natural home habitat in a respectful manner. During the course of each journey she shares her knowledge and fascination of not only the marine mammals but also the backcountry island habitats, coral reefs and more.

Sheri has fostered a personal connection and relationship with the resident dolphins that make their home in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic waters near Key West. Sheri is intimately familiar with the diverse travel patterns, behaviors and sites to find the resident dolphins.

Sheri’s deep love of the ocean and the dolphins for the past two decades led her to Key West to share the wonders of the dolphins with people seeking the opportunity to learn, observe and interact with these mammals in the wild.
