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

We had a great personalized tour with George and Gorge the dog, we followed a group of 4 dolphins, saw lots of birds, learned about the inland waterway and the portuguese man o war, and got fired on from the pirate ship. My kids loved it, we loved it! Our captain was super, he even let the kids steer the... More

We went on a dolphin viewing boat trip with George and dolphin dog Gorgie. There were 5 of us on the excursion and we found the dolphins just a short ride from where the boat was docked in Port Isabel. We had a great time. There were up to 7 dolphins that jumped and swam right beside the boat for... More
