This was my second time on the dolphin racer and it never fails to disappoint. So much fun. You are guaranteed to see dolphins or they give your money back. The dolphins like to play in the wave in the back of the boat.More

They do have small life jackets. They are big and bulky, but my 4 year old niece wore it the entire time for our peace of mind.
