It was my girlfriend and myself's 1st time doing the dolphin tour and it was amazing. We did see dolphins and the views were amazing. It was a good hour and the guide was very knowledgeable. Coming from out of town and being in Galveston for the 1st time, this tour was very nice to experience. Really recommend the tour especially with kiddos!

Not only did we see dolphins, but we saw an abandoned ship. The guides told us how a man tried to live on the ship with goats, then the national guard kicked him off. It was a cool story and experience to see all the ships and dolphins.
