Dolphin Cruises

All Dolphin Tales cruises (except for our special, and limited, Blue Angels outings that are scheduled March through November), depart daily. Check our online calendar for cruise availability, times, and prices. We post schedules a few weeks in advance. If you wish to book a month or more in advance, please call us. We are more than happy to work with you. Please have all your necessary payment and contact information together before you call to book. This greatly speeds the order process, and keeps our customer service team happy! The Blue Angels 2016 practice schedule online, too.

Dolphin Tale’s professionally certified and USCG 100 ton licensed Captain Bart has been closely observing our estimated 40 local dolphin population for years. He is familiar enough with this pod (this is what a group of dolphins is called) to have named more than a few. Spring of 2015, we had 4 babies. Spring of 2016 has brought us 6 baby dolphins!
