9 of us went on the Dolphin Explorer. Unbelievable experience! We saw 22 different dolphins, learned so much about them, shelled at a beautiful beach, and more importantly the 3 children with us had a BLAST!!!! You will not regret doing this experience!

Excellent experience for all. The captain and the Naturalist, Bob, had so much information to share and we're happy to do it. We were a family of six with an age range from 4-74. Saw many Dolphins.

It was our 3rd trip with the dolphin explorer and we enjoyed every minute. Saw a lot of Dolphins and loved the stop at Tigertail Beach with the nesting birds. Even found 3 sanddollars. Will come back again. Heidemarie
