We saw dolphins almost immediately and followed them around the inner bay until they dissapeared and then went around to find others. Captain Mike was very informative about the area and did an excellent job of minimizing rocking in the boat. We were dissapointed that we didn't leave the inner bay area but there were plenty of dolphins in the area.

My husband and I enjoyed our dolphin tour. The boat captain was informative and he was able to get us by a shrimp boat. This caused the dolphins to come out and we were able to see several dolphins during our 45 minute tour. It was well worth the $10 ticket price.

There were some mechanical issues on the boat before us so we were delayed but the staff were great about letting us know and giving people the option to change if the timing didn't work.
Captain Bud was informed and funny. We saw a ton of dolphins, including a couple of babies. Baby! Dolphins!! Seriously!
It was awesome and we had a great time.

Looking for something to do in Galveston, we decided to try this out. I figured, even if we see no dolphins, it was only $10 and we'd get a nice boat ride on a hot day. However, we saw dolphins almost instantly! There were tons of them and close to the boat, too. They were clearly used to the boat. They almost seemed to follow it for a while. They kept coming out of the water, so we got some really good views of these wonderful creatures. Some played around a little, too, doing jumps and spins. The boat captain was fun and personable. He was also fantastic with my 2 year old nephew! The captain filled us in on some info about the surrounding buildings, too. Would recommend to anyone! Forty-five minutes of fun!
