This was a very good choice. It was raining but it didn't matter. We saw a group of young dolphin playing (tossing around a fish). Knowledgeable captain, first mate and intern.

After having watched Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins in Hong Kong, I have looked forward to having another dolphin experience for a long time. This trip to Nags Head was so amazing. It could be close to the pretty dolphins and enjoy sea views.

Are there bathrooms on the boat? We have a 4 and 6 year old - not sure they won't need to go to bathroom on a two hour tour?

Yes. It is a very tiny bathroom. No sink. Our four-year-old had to use it too!
