Dolphin Cruises

What is on your bucket list for a beach vacation memory? Dolphins is a common response. Dolphin Tales offers you plenty of opportunities to watch them in their natural habitat. Our Dolphin Tales crew is committed to create lasting memories for you and your family. We give you an up-close view of the wild dolphin.

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!

Please note all special deals and scheduled excursions are subject to change. Weather is always a factor. Captain Bart and Tabitha believe in making your vacation as much fun as possible. We occasionally offer new trips or modify existing ones. We always look forward to meeting you, and deeply appreciate your business. Positive comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. You may post them to our Facebook page or to Trip Advisor. We value your opinion. If we don’t meet your expectations, we would much prefer you discuss that with us personally. That’s another advantage of booking with Dolphin Tales. One of the owners will always be on board the boat. Many times, both owners are on board.
