Captain Mike, Michelle, and First Mate Johnny made my mom's 70th birthday celebration aboard the Indian Summer a night none of us will ever forget! Captain Mike was incredibly accommodating and made sure everything was perfect from start to finish. We boarded the beautiful boat and sailed out into the Bay of Banderas - and right into a group of... More

In the past month we did a whale watch cruise with Red Dolphin Cruises and also a whale watch and snorkel cruise. Both of them were wonderful days. We didn't get to see whales breaching, but we did get to listen to them and did see whales both days along with turtles and dolphins one day. Mike, Michelle and Johnny... More

Mike was fun and quite a great host. The late afternoon evening cruise was fun and exciting. We saw humpback whales AND heard them "talking". The dinner amazing,... More

Listened to whales talking to each other, saw whales, went swimming, ate and drank the entire time, had great conversation with interesting people, treated like kings...what more can you ask for. Mike, Michelle, and Johnny are perfect hosts with a perfect setting. This is my second time on the tour and I brought my parents this time...it did not disappoint!... More

Went out on a cruise yesterday with Mike, Michelle, and Johnny. Had an absolute fabulous day! They could not have been more generous, friendly or helpful on making our day the best! Saw many whales which was very exciting for us. Good food, drinks and company! Recommend it to everybody! Thanks for a great trip! See you again on Sunday!

Every year for the past 5 years, my sister has booked several Red Dolphin cruises during the winter season for her visiting friends and family (including me). We have gone on full day cruises and sunset cruises. Every trip is different as you can customize what you would like to do and where you would like to go. We have... More

We would highly recommend this sailing trip. Mike and Michelle were wonderful and food and drinks were great too! We snorkeled, kayaked, swam and relaxed the day away, ending with the sunset and also ran into a school of dolphins! We all had a great time and we look forward to the next time.It was the highlight of our vacation.... More

Mike and crew were absolutely awesome! We had a great time and they pulled off my proposal for my now fiance perfectly! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and I would absolutely recommend anyone that is interested in booking a charter to use Mike and Michelle as they are the best in all areas!
