The dolphins were fun to watch. But the guide made it more memorable. We will do it again next time we come. I’d like to do the sunset cruise next time we are here as cm well.

Good day on the water

It was a good experience and the weather was nice. Price was good. Will do again. I'm scared of water and an hour was long enough.
Great afternoon with the family

The guide and captain were very nice and knowledgeable about the area. We’ve done a dolphin tour in the past, we had a lot more fun on this one. My daughters and I loved that there was music playing- an unexpected dance party! So fun! Great memories made!

Our guide was delightful great sense of humor. We experienced numerous dolphins up close. The boat takes you right to them! I highly recommend this for a great time.
Great outing!!!

We had a great time!! The guides were very entertaining and knowledgeable. Fantastic outing. Highly recommend this tour, even for those that have been to Galveston many times, like us.
Excellent and informative tour of the bay.

Learning about Galveston bay and the sunken ship. A little bit of the History about Galveston and the dolphins. Steven and Austin did a great job answering all of our questions.
Great fun

The sunken ship and many dolphins were spotted. 🙂 Had great time. Would like to go again. I loved everything
Amazing experience and the crew was great
, Sep 2021
I would have been happy just being out on the water. But we got to see dolphins nearly as soon as we Left the dock. Some dolphins even showed up right next to the boat. I also really liked that if something were to happen and you couldn't make it or the weather was bad you have the option to rebook or get a refund. This is really good when you only have one time slide that works for you. It was an amazing experience. We will be going back.

The weather was perfect and so was the ride. Got to see a few dolphins but being on the boat was worth every penny. The guid and captain were great.
