So much fun! Great captain! Nice boat, well kept. Fun atmosphere and best of all, we saw so many dolphins!! We also learned a lot about ships and different boats than I ever thought imaginable! This is a must do for all ages!

We went to see the dolphins which we did see a bunch which was awesome. The other thing I loved about this is that our boat captian also included education about the dolphins, shrimp boats, and places in the area. You must do this!

I only wish that I had known about this when I was down here with my daughter. Such a low price (10.00 per person if you do not do the Elissa and the museum). The captain and his deckhand are funny and keep you entertained as they point out the dolphin. You really get up close to fishing boats and... More

I took this tour in June with my extended family of 11. It was a wonderful tour for the price. Actually the price was so little that we had no expectations. The little boat was clean and the captain was super friendly. We saw more dolphins than we thought possible (though to be fair they didn't fly out of the... More

We had a fun time on the boat seeing the harbor sites. The pelicans and seagulls were entertaining. We did see a few dolphins too! The price is reasonable and the guide enjoyable,

It was awesome getting to see real wild dolphins. I recommend going on the first boat ride in the morning when the dolphins are feeding behind the shrimp boats. The Captain gives good history and info on things in the harbor. The best part was the price. 👍👍

This tour was great and for the cost you can't beat the value. The staff was courteous and efficient plus a very knowledgeable captain. A great way to see the harbor and get a feel for the ship activity in the harbor. Oh, and we did actually see a few dolphins lol plus some kind of a sea snake. I... More

We had 2 adults, 1 teenager & a 5 yr. old in our group. It was our favorite thing to do on our trip this week! The Capt. did an excellent job navigating. He found us lots of dolphins, even babies! We saw many interesting old ships & the Capt. told us some interesting facts. This was my 2nd time... More

We went on the Baywatch Dolphin Tour at 4:30 during the week. It's inexpensive ($10 adults, $5 kids) and we enjoyed the boat ride but we did not see a lot of dolphins. There were a few baby dolphins playing in the water (none jumped so we couldn't see them very well) and we also saw tales of adult dolphins... More

We had a wonderful time watching the dolphins on this tour! We saw dozens of dolphins right up close! The captain gave a great tour of the entire harbor- he was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. Great value! We highly recommend it for families with kids! They sold cold drinks on board as well for just $1.
