About Dolphin Encounter
They say you can’t live life to the fullest unless you get out of the boat, but these dolphin encounter cruises suggest otherwise. From the decks of the glass-bottomed boat, you’ll voyage to the natural habitat of the spinner dolphin. Here, enlightened by an onboard naturalist, you’ll experience the thrills of up-close encounters with playful dolphin pods. You’re also likely to catch sight of other marine wildlife including tropical fish, manta rays, sea turtles, and migrating whales.
Great time. Crew was very knowledgeable on area sea life and coastal hot spots. Lunch with the spinner dolphins was a blast. The manta ray (lefty) was an added bonus.
