We took this tour around 5 P.M. and were surprised by the number of dolphins we saw and how close they came to the boat. But the best part of the tour was the captain. He's kind of like a big kid just out having fun and has a great sense of humor. And if it's a hot day and you want to get wet, just let him know :) The $10 to get on board makes it some very inexpensive entertainment.

We took the Queen of Peace Golden Seniors and it was great! We all enjoyed it! We saw dolphins immediately once we got close to a shrimping boat! We were worried that the oil spill would have really put a damper on the outing but to the contrary. We got to see the men working first hand to clean up this massive spill! The wild life looked good over all! Captain Mike gave a great narration of Galveston History from Jean Lafitte to the great storm and concluding with the commerce of the Ship Channel. And Captain Mike has great boating skills! We will definitely go back!

A bargin price. The boat was small but very comfortable. You get to see it all from the water. The guide was experienced and polite, a pleasure to be in his company. Quality from begining to end of trip.

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...
