Owner description: One of the most unique activities on South Padre Island is the dolphin watching tour. South Texas is a year-round home to several large pods of dolphin and The Original Dolphin Watch is your ticket to viewing them in all their natural splendor. One of the most memorable activities you will take part in while visiting South Padre is a cruise with us. Share the thrill of meeting bottle nose and spinner dolphins in the wild and experience the unique bond and kinship they inspire in mankind.Dolphin Watch TourDolphin Watch Eco-TourDolphin Watch Sunset TourDolphin Watch Fireworks Tour

We've booked with these guys twice in the last month they're that good! They're competitively priced and professional (not all the dolphin tours are, please beware). Sonny (sp?) did a fantastic job on the eco-tour bit of the journey and knows his stuff! I was impressed with the information conveyed and tips he had when, and if, you encounter some of those critters around SPI. Thank you so much TODW for great memories with both our families. We will definitely being referring you to our friends here in the RGV and any visitors.

With our son & 3 grandchildren, this trip was a must. They all had a fantastic time. From the live sea life brought up to the multitude of dolphins seen.

very impressed with the original dolphin watch! loved the music they chose and the commentary. saw SO many more dolphins than we expected (we went on the sunset cruise). definitely worth $13 as it is 2 full hours of seeing dolphins and learning about areas and waters surrounding South Padre Island.

This was great! Well worth the $13/each we spent. We saw a few dolphins, but the sunset was phenomenal! and the crew of the boat was super! We were out for about 1.5 hours on the bay, saw a huge tanker coming in, and went out to where the bay meets the ocean. It was money well spent! I highly recommend it for people of all ages.
