Took the two hour dolphin watch / tour. Didn't see any but still worth the trip - would do it again. Suggest going early before it's blazing hot!

We have came to Blue Wave twice now and it has not disappointed us yet. The crew is quite knowledgeable. We went on the dolphin cruise and seen dolphin playing in the ocean, so majestic.

You do need a reservation. We went in July and sadly did not see any dolphins, however the water was so rough, not sure if that had anything to do with it or not. They offered for the entire boat to come back since we didn't... More
