This 3-hour boat ride exceeded my expectations by far. Bob and James are so knowledgeable about these dolphins that they can recognize them by name the minute they see their dorsal fins. The books for the children were wonderful! The booklets for the adults were fascinating, as we compared the photos of dozens of local dolphins to photos that Bob was taking as we were watching. I got great video of dolphins leaping in the wake at the back of the boat. It was so emotional it brought me to tears. We were given free water and a cute bag to collect shells in. I told James I was interested in birds, and he pointed out a lot of birds to me along the way. This is a wonderful excursion. I cannot say enough good things about it.

We have been on other dolphin tours and this is by far the best because it was SO much more than the boat trying to get the dolphins to play and jump out of the water for photos. Yes James the captain did get them to play and that was great for sure! He took us around and we saw over 20 dolphins as
Bob explained all about the dolphins and their habits, life cycles, etc… too much to mention. Additionally he explained all about the habitat - how the mangrove plants survive and prosper, the migration of the white pelicans, etc……

We definitely plan to join them again as they continue their study!!

Captain James and Bob did an amazing job explaining and finding dolphins. In total we saw 12 different dolphins in their natural element playing and entertaining. It was evident about the love and dedication that the team has for what they do and it translated into an absolutely beautiful day. Thank you sooo much. One polish point, raise your rates. You offer a superior experience and should be compensated for the experience.

Fantastic activity for young and old alike. The pictures don’t do it justice. The boat was wonderful and clean. The crew was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about their jobs. They identified all the dolphins we saw and had a story about each, and every one of them . Their enthusiasm over dolphin research project that they are involved in was infectious. you get an opportunity to become a part of the actual dolphin project. We must’ve seen 20 different dolphins in all different stages of activity. This is one of the best Eco tours I’ve taken.
