He pointed out places of interest, giving historical significance & other facts while searching out our main goal. And yes, we did see dolphins, even in the midday heat of summer. i would... More

We loved the tour so much we went twice. The Captains were funny and very informative. My family learned a lot about the harbor, dolphins, importing and exporting, and oil refineries. The first trip we seen about 20 dolphins. It was also very reasonably priced.

We go on this boat every time we visit Galveston. The staff are friendly, you get a little tour of the bay and usually see some Dolphins. Highly recommended.

This is a great family outing. The captain and first mate were excellent. They make sure you see dolphins. Great views from the waterway. It was my sister's birthday and the first mate sang to her. It was really an enjoyable time.

We had a great time and saw a good and active pod of dolphins. The captain was very entertaining and worked hard to make sure everyone on board saw the dolphins.
