What a great tour! We saw several dolphins, and our guide maneuvered us around for better views. Then we went along the shore and he had lots of interesting info and tips.

Captain Bud was GREAT and scoped out the DOLPHINS... Saw LOADS of DOLPHINS (several calves too) and they came very close to the boat...(January 4,2014) The first time we ever saw about 5 in formation...They looked like "Dolphin Soldiers"... REALLY COOL!!! Highly recommend doing this as a combination tour with Cool Tours, which was AMAZING... GREAT Value... $ Well spent! Thanks for a FUN experience...

“Nice way to spend an hour”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Trip was very good value at $10 for a 45 minute tour. You get a tour of the bay with a commentary by the captain and you get to see dolphins. We saw about 10 on our trip and at one point there were 5 together. It was really nice to see and as mentioned well worth the price. The bay is not picturesque but it's the dolphins you go to see so glad we saw some !

“Best thing we did in Galveston!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Had a wonderful tour, and for only $10 per person! We were a little skeptical at first because when I called the day before our tour the woman on the phone was not overly friendly or informative. They were a little hard to find at first because we had no idea where we were going. Once we did, they were super easy to locate.

They took us out even tho there was only 2 of us. We saw a bunch of dophins, which was facinating to see :) Was surprised with how much history the Captain provided us with on the city, the history, and all the surrounding ships! Best thing we did! Would highly recommend if you are in Galveston!

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.
