“Yay dolphins!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

For only $10 per adult you get a nice little tour of the harbor and get to see wild dolphins in their natural habitat. Being a huge dolphin enthusiast, this was extremely exciting for me! The captain was nice and was even able to recommend a good seafood place in the area. Would definitely do it again.

“Fun tour!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Very enjoyable tour! Captain Mike was informative. I was skeptical about seeing dolphins, but sure enough, we were not disappointed! Well worth the price!

“Lots of dolphins!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We cruised behind a shrimp boat. We had a momma, pappa & little one trailing us for most of the way. The captain was funny & knowledgable. We cruised by Carnival's Magic cruise ship, some oil tankers & a newly christened military ship - the Fort Worth.

Execellent value! No bathroom on the cruise :)

“Love this tour!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We've done this several times, now, and always enjoy it. The captain is informative, funny & personable. And he tries his darnedest to get us views of the dolphins, even when they're playing hard-to-get. And you can't beat the cost!

There is seating on the fore and aft decks, and more in the air-cooled cabin, which is where I usually wind up. There really are no bad seats. And there is a restroom onboard, although I haven't used it. Drinks (non-alcoholic) are available for sale as well.

The tour can be purchased in front of Harbor House Hotel, at a small kiosk. The boat itself is berthed in the small area to the left of Harbor House, which is where you will embark/debark.

Be prepared to get splashed if the captain makes tight turns to catch dolphins or the surf is choppy (we've never gotten wet, just splashed).
