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!

Went out on the 60 hour trip. Caught plenty of tuna first night. Second night fished for snapper and amberjack. Caught fish till my arms were tired. Food inboard was good. I will go again. This is the best outfit to fish with in my opinion as far as party boats go.

Captain Noe & crew the best!!! Always catch Whiting & Sand Trout which is good eating!! Have fish fillet by crew & then in SPI "Dirty Al's"(casual dining) or "Black Beards"(nicer dining) will cook it up with sides:)) Awesome time bay fishing in Laguna Madre!! Use this your every time & never come back empty handed:D Can't beat the price... More
