Many tour operators offer Dolphin trips. And even without a tour company you can go out on the Commewijne river to spot dolphins. just go to Leonsberg and charter a boat. My friends and a randomly booked a dolphin trip. Coincidentally it was with Waterproof tours, we already did another trip with them that left us very satisfied so we were happy. Unfortunately this trip was a disappointment.
The day that we went on the trip, the dolphins weren't where they usually hang out, so we had to go a far out to see them. luckily we saw a couple of them, unfortunately not for long. but hey it's nature so you can't complain. Hence this doesn't explain the poor rating I gave waterproof tours. on the boat we had enough to drink (incl alcohol) and there were snacks (chips). that part was okay. but the part that I really disliked is the passive attitude of our guide. he hardly gave us any explanation and on the way back he gave us some laminated A4 papers to read (info about the dolphins and the area). doesn't he understand that I came on this trip to relax? I do not want to read like 10 pages. the information should have been shared verbally. the documentation should have been for those who wanted more back ground information. furthermore the boat stopped at a small village on the river back and left again after 5 minutes, without giving any kind of explanation. the guided could hardly answer any questions. eventually we stopped at another place (I can't tell you where, because we weren't given that information) where we had some cold snacks such as "baka bana" "loempia" and "bara" and the mosquitoes out there were killing us. so everybody returned to the boat as quick as possible. we returned to leonsberg way after dark, tired and unsatisfied.
the only nice thing is that the guide called a taxi for us. because there was no way we have gotten back to town at that time.
