Looking to have a wonderful time and make memories with your family while staying at our beautiful beach house? Why not take a tour of the most beautiful and majestic sea creature known to man: the dolphin. Yes, there are Dolphins in the Gulf and can be found in Galveston. Galveston has many companies that will take you on a memorable dolphin tour.
Today we will talk about two of them: BayWatch Dolphin Tours and Galveston Water Adventures. Both companies will be sure to offer you an unforgettable chance to see some beautiful dolphins.
BayWatch Dolphin Tours is a family owned business which has been doing dolphin tours since 2005. One of the remarkable things about their tours is that they are 100% dolphin safe!
Their boats do not have propellers, so they are able to take you up close to the natural habitat of the dolphins without risk of accidently harming them. They are open all week year round. Adult admission is $10. Children two to twelve years old get in for $5.
Infants ride for free. You are also free to bring your pet free of any charge! You can also rent out their boats for family parties, reunions, and birthday parties. The cost for those activities will be $350.00 plus tax & 15% gratuity. I can personally vouge for this company. The captains and the tout guides are very fun and entertaining people.
The captain even let one of the kids steer the boat! And best of all, I have seen multiple dolphins every time I have taken a tour! Overall, it as a very productive forty-five-minute tour and money well spent.
Galveston Water Adventures is another suitable place to take a dolphin tour. They offer a one-hour tour of Galveston’s Harbor, which allows guests to view the marine life and many birds.
Admission for adults is $12 plus tax. Children twelve and under get in for $8 plus tax. Infants get in for free. You can also book a private event for birthday parties, weddings, etc.
They charge $350 per hour for private events. Personally, I really enjoyed the dolphin tour. Captain Jay made the trip very entertaining and memorable! He was also very knowledgeable with everything in and around the area. Overall, it was a very fun tour with many dolphins and other marine animals to see!
In conclusion, both places will provide you with an experience you will remember for a lifetime. Bring your whole family to come see the wonderful marine life that the beautiful island of Galveston has to offer. Book your tour now; the dolphins are eager for you to come visit them!
