This was a fun and informative excursion! We used a Groupon. Captain Dalton and First mate Jackson were great. I felt like we were in good hands with this captain. He was obviously very experienced, safety conscious, and doing his best to provide dolphin sightings....More

The crew promised us we would see dolphins and they delivered! The dolphins were riding the wave of the boat, sometimes 3-5 out of the water at a time. The captain turned the boat after giving the dolphins a rest and got us another show!...More

This was amazing. We saw many dolphins & they even were flying out of the water in the boat's wake. We really enjoyed it & highly recommend the trip to visitors. By the way, we have been FL residents for 3 years.More

The tour was a lot of fun. Captain Dalton did a great job finding the dolphins and attracting them to swim in our wake. It was pretty exciting. Only improvement would be a shade cover. It was pretty hot that day.

Ordinarily, it is $24.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can look up a Groupon and get it for much less. It's probably best to just call them to find details and check out the Groupon.

Most of our customers don't experience any motion sickness issues aboard the Dolphin Racer, but it's always a good idea to take something if you think you may have sensitivity, just to be safe :)
