Absolutely the best dolphin tour we’ve ever been on, even better than any we’ve been on in the Caribbean. Captain Dalton and Jackson are amazing. We will be back! 🐬🚤

What an amazing experience. Captain Dalton and first mate Jackson made sure that we saw plenty of dolphins. Also enjoyed learning so much about these beautiful animals. If you are in this area you definitely need to go out on the Dolphin Racer .

Ordinarily, it is $24.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can look up a Groupon and get it for much less. It's probably best to just call them to find details and check out the Groupon.
