Our family went on the morning fishing trip ( 8:00am to noon). My son is 10 years old and he and all the other children on board had a ball. The boat is comfortable with seating inside the cabin as well as on deck. We saw lot's of wildlife including some sea turtles. The staff was polite, attentive and very... More

This was my favorite attraction! Our guide trolled for fish, which he then told us about and allowed us to handle. We were able to hold live starfish, flounder, and even a puffer fish! Every time we spotted a dolphin, the captain kept circling the boat to allow optimal viewing. I would recommend this trip for everyone!

We were on a different Dolphin tour (different company) but ran into Dolphin Docks' tour boat on the bay at Dolphin Cove. It was a huge boat that ran OVER the feeding dolphins several times. I seriously hope no dolphins were injured or killed by the careless captain. I thought we were all there to see Dolphins, not run them... More

My kids are 16 and 9 and both had an amazing adventure. The staff is very nice to the children and keeping them interested. I'd highly recommend this if you are interested in marine life and want to take a nice stroll into the gulf/bay.

Folks, we went out as family & friends to catch fish; however, the service is nothing short of amazing. You may be coming for some fishing, but the Captain: Noe & Deckhand: Willie simply make the trip absolutely phenomenal. The cost is about $18 per person (fishing) with spectators paying about ($10). I must have caught about 18 fish throughout... More

We took our extened family on the Eco tour from Dolphin Docks. We should have read the website that says they drag a net across the bottom of the lagoon. They dump the critters they pull up into a plastic tub and then hand them out to visitors to hold and take pictures of. There was very limited Eco information... More

We did the Dolphin Watch/ Eco tour on the 70" boat named “Fish Tales”. This excursion was 90 minutes and very reasonably priced: $16. for adults and $13 for kids. About 20 minutes into the trip the crew drops a net and they drag it on the bottom for a while. Any sea creatures they find are placed into a... More

Got to see some dolphins on the way out to watch the sunset which was beautiful, and then anchored in the perfect spot for the fireworks display on Friday! It was great and the captain of the boat was perfectly accommodating- will absolutely return!
