Go with one of our guides and see wild Atlantic bottlenose dolphins up close and in their natural habitat. Hear the sounds they make and see how much fun they have playing! We have been doing this for years and are very successful at finding dolphins. Our find rate is over 95%. But there are no guarantees. You may not feed and/or approach dolphins in the water. This is a very popular tour. Each waverunner seats up to 3 people.
