This was a cool experience. took a boat thru this reserve and saw lots of dolphins jumping out of the water. Very cool to pass by on your way to another island

All tours leave at 9:30am. If you can, take a private charter to zapatillas at Bastimentos National Marine Park at 8:30am and you will have the adventure to yourselves! Dolphins feed in AM. Better chance then.

We took a boat tour that included a visit to Dolphin Bay and it was sad to watch 15-20 boats chasing surfacing dolphin around the bay. It was like the dolphins were running away from the boats.

One of the advantages of being here during low season is that there weren't too many boats. We saw lots of dolphins. The tour guides are all good friends and respectfully allow each boat to get their photo opportunities, but you have to be quick...More
