After learning about the dolphins and taking lots of upclose pictures, we then take you into our beautiful bayous for an ecotour, where you may see wildlife ranging from Ospreys, Eagles, Deer or maybe even an Alligator! Smooth Sailing Tours: Step aboard the Cetacean, our beautiful 52' Sailing catamaran for an awesome cruise into Wolf Bay! Kick back and relax while listening to great music and enjoying your favorite beverage as we sail the calm waters of the bay.

There is a covered area for shade and comfortable seating. I would suggest calling ahead about minimim age. This is about a four hour cruise. Enjoy your time on the gulf.
