Experience the thrill of watching dolphins in the wild on our state-of-the-art luxury sailing vessel, Ocean Spirit. This deluxe dolphin watch experience will run with a maximum capacity of only 35 people and will include lunch and refreshments.
See acrobatic spinner dolphins, friendly bottlenose dolphins, and curious spotted dolphins while our certified Marine Naturalists interpret their behaviors and share fascinating facts about wild dolphin characteristics and biology.
We sail when possible depending on weather conditions or whale activity and may need to use our engines for the safety of the animals, in accordance with our “Be Whale Aware” policies for safe and sustainable wildlife viewing.
Dolphin sightings are guaranteed or go again free on another Dolphin Watch within one year.
