Our tour guides were excellent at knowing when and where to spot dolphins. We saw several pods and learned a bit about the species native to the CC Bay Area. The prices are reasonable, too. Take your kids; they will love it!

The boat is a little overhyped. The staff is nice, but I saw another boat also doing dolphin encounters and it appeared much nicer. It was more what I thought we would experience. I had called and asked questions directly about handicap access for my...More

My husband and I enjoyed the Dolphin Encounter cruise. The captain did his best to find dolphins, and we did see some, but they weren't as visible as I had hoped. Not the captain/company's fault, though! We did enjoy the ride as we navigated through...More

We chose the evening cruise with our 3 granddaughters ages 3,5 and 8. We all enjoyed the water, sites and the dolphins. The crew were informative and friendly. My middle granddaughter even got to be "captain" as she stood at the helm.

They didn't let us out to swim, but also it was February. They do provide a nice tour that includes not only seeing dolphins but a little bit about the lighthouse and some other sites along the shore.
