Please call for tour availability during Off Peak Season between October and March. Peak Season includes Spring Break.
10am Fins and Feathers
Join us in the calm of the day as we watch dolphins hacking a free meal behind shrimp boats. See below the surface at the magnified form of the beasties! Reaching the islands, there’s white and brown pelicans, ring-billed gulls and black skimmers. An Osprey is guaranteed, the only predator who dips his claws under the surface to catch a fish.
On the way back we’ll be on the lookout for the magnificent frigate bird who can stay aloft for up to 2 months and catch dolphins as they defy gravity jumping in the bow of the big tankers.
11:30am Baby Watch!
It’s the happiest time of the whole dolphin year! Starting this March, we’ll be on baby watch! This tour focuses on observing mother and calf and the unique way two dolphins swim as one.
Newborns swim in the “pole position” on mom’s shoulder where they find protection but also enjoy a front row seat in the underwater classroom. If you are the first person to see a brand-new baby, we invite you to pick out a name, and we’ll show you how to identify its mother.
1pm Extreme Dolphin Watching
Do you like rollercoasters? Are you a thrill-seeker? Does speeding along in a powerboat with the wind in your hair and saltwater on your lips sound like fun? Then you will want to sign up for our Extreme Dolphin Watching!
We say extreme because in order to see dolphins surfing, we must venture out into the waves. And who wins when dolphins play chicken jumping in the bow of the big tankers? Come and see!
Special Sunset Tours:
Valentine Dolphin Trips
Love is in the air, literally. When dolphins mate, it’s a visible and electrifying water explosion. They mate chest-to-chest preceded by lots of splashing and leaping as males compete for females.
