We took this tour around 5 P.M. and were surprised by the number of dolphins we saw and how close they came to the boat. But the best part of the tour was the captain. He's kind of like a big kid just out having fun and has a great sense of humor. And if it's a hot day and... More

We took the Queen of Peace Golden Seniors and it was great! We all enjoyed it! We saw dolphins immediately once we got close to a shrimping boat! We were worried that the oil spill would have really put a damper on the outing but to the contrary. We got to see the men working first hand to clean up... More

A bargin price. The boat was small but very comfortable. You get to see it all from the water. The guide was experienced and polite, a pleasure to be in his company. Quality from begining to end of trip.

What a great tour! We saw several dolphins, and our guide maneuvered us around for better views. Then we went along the shore and he had lots of interesting info and tips.

Captain Bud was GREAT and scoped out the DOLPHINS... Saw LOADS of DOLPHINS (several calves too) and they came very close to the boat...(January 4,2014) The first time we ever saw about 5 in formation...They looked like "Dolphin Soldiers"... REALLY COOL!!! Highly recommend doing this as a combination tour with Cool Tours, which was AMAZING... GREAT Value... $ Well spent!... More

Trip was very good value at $10 for a 45 minute tour. You get a tour of the bay with a commentary by the captain and you get to see dolphins. We saw about 10 on our trip and at one point there were 5 together. It was really nice to see and as mentioned well worth the price. The... More

Had a wonderful tour, and for only $10 per person! We were a little skeptical at first because when I called the day before our tour the woman on the phone was not overly friendly or informative. They were a little hard to find at first because we had no idea where we were going. Once we did, they were... More

We saw dolphins almost immediately and followed them around the inner bay until they dissapeared and then went around to find others. Captain Mike was very informative about the area and did an excellent job of minimizing rocking in the boat. We were dissapointed that we didn't leave the inner bay area but there were plenty of dolphins in the... More

My husband and I enjoyed our dolphin tour. The boat captain was informative and he was able to get us by a shrimp boat. This caused the dolphins to come out and we were able to see several dolphins during our 45 minute tour. It was well worth the $10 ticket price.
