    Great family outing with doggo

    Our dog, Tuff, is afraid of lots of things but we expose him to as many different experiences as possible. At first he was afraid but he warmed up and seemed to enjoy the dozens of Dolphin sitings. Captains are awesome.

    Wonderful time!

    We had a great time on the dolphin cruise. Capt Adam was great and told fun stories and gave lots of fun facts. We saw lots of dolphins and our fur baby had a great time in the ocean breezes. Would recommend highly!

    Great Tour!

    This tour was very informative. We got to see plenty of dolphins and learn about the local area and marine life. They are very dog friendly and our pup really enjoyed poking her head through the railing to watch the birds and the dolphins. Captain Adam did a great job making this tour worth your while, and I would recommend this to any of my friends and family.

    Great Experience!

    I took my dog Abbott to Galveston for his 12th Birthday and decided to try the dolphin boat tour. I was a little nervous T first about taking him but he did great and I could tell he really enjoyed it. We got to see several dolphins that day and even a couple that jumped completely out of the water. It was awesome! I highly recommend it if you have a chill dog.

    Fun for dogs

    Our dog really enjoyed the tour! She was a bit nervous at first but loved the ocean wind. Staff were really nice.

    Not open

    According to everything I found on their website indicated they were open even the message on their phone indicated the same. Paid for parking, we and our dog ready to go. No one in ticket booth, no sign other than one stating they sold face masks. No one around to ask. Saw their boats in harbor but obviously no one working. So disappointing!!! Would give no bones, but that option not available. I understand with the prevailing covid conditions, but they need to update the message on their phone and post a sign at their booth. A waste of time for something we were really looking forward to. 😥

    This tour was not as extensive as the one done by Harborside, but dogs are very welcome. We saw lots of dolphins and other cool sights.

    I have a dog who LOVES car rides, so I thought she’d enjoy this. It was a pleasant tour filled with lots of information. We watched dolphins for about 15 minutes, but then moved on to a tour about other Galveston locations. My dog loved the wind and the salt spray. Captain Adam was great and even gave my dog a little shout-out over the speaker. We parked in a lot down the street for $5, but downtown parking a little farther away is free. Side note: I have another dog who doesn’t love car rides and new situations. After the tour, I was really glad we didn’t take him. Just know your pup!

    Fun Tour

    This was a great tour! Captain Mike was a great tour guide filled with dolphin facts, island history, and great jokes. Plus our pups loved being out on the water. We will definitely do this tour again!
