George and Gorgy (the dolphin dog) were amazing tour guides on the dolphin tour. George knows the bay area well and knows all the hot spots for where the dolphins "hang out". I loved that we were on a smaller boat than the typical dolphin tour boats. It allows you to get closer to the dolphins and a much more interesting tour!

Literally! We were standing out all the time! :) Dolphins and bird-life galore.

We had a great time with Capt. George and Gorgy (his dog and the best dolphin spotter on the boat) watching wildlife at South Padre. George has solid knowledge of the wildlife and is an experienced birder as well. His passion for the dolphins and wildlife comes through when he talks about them and makes for a genuinely enjoyable tour.
His boat is comfortable and makes for a a great and stable wildlife viewing platform.
Needless to say, we loved this experience and will be making a habit of meeting up with him at Fins to Feathers every time we return to South Padre.

Four of us took a tour with George and his dog and we saw a whole pod of dolphins. George is very friendly and knowledgeable about his tour. He is also very careful about how he navigates around the dolphins to ensure their safety. The experience was way better than what we had expected. We would absolutely go on the tour again if we make another trip to South Padre Island. Meanwhile, we would recommend the tour to anyone.

George and his dog, Gorgy, gave a humerous, quality tour. The small size of the boat made the tour seem almost private. And while we would have liked to have seen more dolphins, the ride was extremely enjoyable.

And my friend got to drive the boat for awhile!!!

We went on a private dolphin tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. George was entertaining, as was his dog. We saw multiple dolphins, they were jumping and flipping. What else is needed on a dolphin tour? George is also a birder, so he shared some knowledge about the birds we saw. There are a lot of birds to see if you prefer feathers to fins.
