The Guaranteed Dolphin Watch is our most popular tour from June to October. This two hour cruise is ideal for all ages.You will hear a factual narration on the Bottlenose Dolphin. Dolphin mating and birthing observed on many cruises. See the most respected aquatic mammal in it's natural habitat. Breathtaking views are all around you on this tour. Our large viewing areas offer everyone a good spot. Each vessel is covered for sun protection with a restroom on board and Coast Guard inspected. Our crews are usually native to the Outer Banks. They love to answer questions and show off the local area to all of our visitors. We believe you'll have the time of your life and it will be the most memorable afternoon of your trip to the Outer Banks.

We expected to see a few dolphins but hit the jackpot, there were a lot more dolphins then we ever dreamed of. The captain was very knowledgeable and his excitement was contagious. Definitely highly recommended!
