This was a great tour for our family of 7! My kids loved riding on the boat and seeing the dolphins! I would recommend the earlier tours because it gets toasty later in the afternoon but it was worth it to see the dolphins.

Went on a Dolphin Watch on June 15th. It was amazing!!! Crew is accommodating and friendly. Be prepared to get soaked - especially if you sit up front. It was a blast! I'm in my 60's and loved it.

$25 per person..Adults & Children. They do 2 trips per day...book early in the week, in case you dont see dolphins, they will give you free return tickets. Worth every penny!

I don't believe there are senior rates...kids, adults, seniors all same cost as the trips book extremely fast and seniors and kids take up 1 seat just like anyone else.
