Our tour guides were excellent at knowing when and where to spot dolphins. We saw several pods and learned a bit about the species native to the CC Bay Area. The prices are reasonable, too. Take your kids; they will love it!

My husband and I enjoyed the Dolphin Encounter cruise. The captain did his best to find dolphins, and we did see some, but they weren't as visible as I had hoped. Not the captain/company's fault, though! We did enjoy the ride as we navigated through...More

We chose the evening cruise with our 3 granddaughters ages 3,5 and 8. We all enjoyed the water, sites and the dolphins. The crew were informative and friendly. My middle granddaughter even got to be "captain" as she stood at the helm.
