The Guaranteed Dolphin Watch is our most popular tour from June to October. This two hour cruise is ideal for all ages.You will hear a factual narration on the Bottlenose Dolphin. Dolphin mating and birthing observed on many cruises. See the most respected aquatic mammal in it's natural habitat. Breathtaking views are all around you on this tour. Our large viewing areas offer everyone a good spot. Each vessel is covered for sun protection with a restroom on board and Coast Guard inspected. Our crews are usually native to the Outer Banks. They love to answer questions and show off the local area to all of our visitors. We believe you'll have the time of your life and it will be the most memorable afternoon of your trip to the Outer Banks.

The ride was beautiful and we saw lots of dolphins. There was some education and humor from the captain. It was the highlight of my trip to OBX.

Calm, light breezy day and we were around 8 -10 dolphins for over an hour. I don't like that I had to have 100 characters minimum on the review.

Fantastic day. Enjoyed every minute. Captain Stuart was very professional and entertaining while providing information and a very enjoyable boat ride. We were able to spend quality time with our daughter and grandchildren.

My husband and I booked a sunset cruise for us and our 3 kids. We found this to be not only very exciting for the kids but also very educational for them as well. We saw dolphins, jelly fish, and lots of osprey. The sunset...More
