Tours aboard the houseboat are very comfortable. It is nice to stay inside the houseboat, out of the weather, until the dolphins are found. Once the dolphins see the houseboat, which they recognize and trust, then the real fun begins!! Being surrounded by happy dolphins that are playing around the boat is an amazing experience! I recommend this to everyone.

Our family of 5 enjoyed our tour with George. His boat was comfortable and offered shade. George found dolphins quickly and we were entertained by them as well as his cute dog, which seemed to be able to hear the dolphins before we could see them. The dog was as excited to see dolphins as we were. George was an... More

We have taken many trips with George - each one has been a thrilling experience with many dolphin sightings. On top of that, george provides a wonderful knowledge of birds we sight along the way. And he makes sure to position the boat for best viewing and (for enthusiasts like us) great photography. What a terrific, exciting, and affordable way... More

I thought the trip out to see the dolphins was excellent. We rode on a pontoon boat that was able to hold 7 people, including the driver, and a dog. The dolphins recognize the boat and swim right up to it. The dog is very friendly and loves people. She came up to us, but she wasn't jumpy and she... More

Best money we spent on South Padre Island! A very reasonable charge for a boat ride around the bay area. Embark from Port Isabel and take a trip with Rozzi the dog and his new companion, a pig! Who knew dolphin watching would be so much fun with a dog. Scarlett, the amazing dolphin whisperer would shout "I do believe... More

My family, friends, and I loved this tour. The experience with the guide and his dog was more fun than the dolphins! This is also a great tour for bird watchers. If we ever go back to padre we will return.

We had a great trip. We saw dolphins for an hour straight within 30 yards. They did 5 flips and lots of other great fun to see. The crew was really fun and you could tell they love dolphins. It was a truly personal experience.

We did dolphin watching twice during our trip. Once on a big boat with Breakaway, and the second time with Fin and Feathers. The smaller boat (only 6 passengers) made for a much nicer experience. We got closer to more dolphins and had a much better view. It is well worth the extra money.

I went on a tour April 13th with George and his dolphin-pointing dog who actually runs to the point on the boat (a pontoon the day I went) where the dolphins are. It's amazing to see the dog in action. We saw several dolphins some of which came right up to the boat and swam next to us. George has... More
