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

An excellent boat tour with Scarlett and Rozzi the dolphin-dog; dolphins and birds, and sunshine. LOTS of dolphins. We had a great day.

My beautiful wife and I took the dolphin tour on Labor Day, no reservation, last minute lucky call. George, the guide only has room for six passengers at a time, so it's a personal tour by design and reservations are recommended. The dolphins were active, lots of pictures. The birding was good, too. George is a lifetime local and shares... More

George and Gorgy (the dolphin dog) were amazing tour guides on the dolphin tour. George knows the bay area well and knows all the hot spots for where the dolphins "hang out". I loved that we were on a smaller boat than the typical dolphin tour boats. It allows you to get closer to the dolphins and a much more... More

Literally! We were standing out all the time! :) Dolphins and bird-life galore. We had a great time with Capt. George and Gorgy (his dog and the best dolphin spotter on the boat) watching wildlife at South Padre. George has solid knowledge of the wildlife and is an experienced birder as well. His passion for the dolphins and wildlife comes... More
