It was our favorite outing on our trip. The man in charge, George, was so friendly and nice and we had a great time, not to mention he had the cutest little dog! We saw close to 75 dolphins and many of them came up to our boat, even a few babies. It was a wonderful experience and well worth the money. He knew so much about the dolphins and had lots of great stories to tell. If you want great value, a friendly driver, and an amost guaranteed view of dolpins, then this is the perfect place to go. We absolutely loved it!

George Colley is so knowledgeable about birds and the entire South Padre area. He does a great job in narrating the tour. It is going to be on our agenda each time we visit South Padre. And the Dolphin Dogs are so cute!

The tour operator, George, was a true professional and a wealth of information on local life, bird life, sea life, and of course, dolphins. On this tour George commented that dolphin activity was above normal. These beautiful creatures thrilled us all. His dolphin dog, Gorkie, was great at spotting the dolphins and encouraging them to show their stuff. We had dolphins come within a few feet from the boat. I would recommend this tour for all ages, The boat ride was smooth and stable. We were able to take a lot of digital photos.
Note: These dolphins are in their wild natural environment. They cannot be touched or fed.

Best thing I've done the whole weekend. It was very relaxing and we saw a lot of dolphins. The guide was very friendly and knew quite a bit about the wildlife. I'll definitely being doing it again in the future.

My husband and I booked this dolphin tour at through the South Padre Island Dolphin and Sealife Center. We went with Mr. Colley on his boat and got great shots of dolphins and other area birds. At one point, we were surrounded by at least 15 dolphins that grew nearer when Mr. Colley called to them. I literally cried it was so beautiful. Mr. Colley was funny and put us at ease. I will come here again every time I go to South Padre.
