I've been on many Dolphin tours from Florida to California and even in the Caribbean and this by far is the cheapest and most entertaining. There were 7 family members ranging from ages 7-44.

Capt. Adam was great and very informative. We saw a good amount of dolphins (although hard to capture on film).

Blake was our captain. Quite entertaining and we got to see plenty of gulls and dolphin so keep your camera handy! Gives you a feel for the busy port area visible from the water.

We didn't bring our dogs with, but the web site indicates that infants and dogs ride for free. I' m sure you could email them for further clarification. Since space is limited, I would think that well behaved dogs only... More

Parking across the Pier 21 is $4 an hour. Fuddruckers will validate for one free hour if you park in parking across the street from the restaurant, and if you eat there, of course.
