Several species of wild dolphins are also seen year-round. Imagine yourself surrounded by stampeding dolphins, stretching out for miles in every direction!

Turbo-charged for fun, our rigid inflatable (zodiac) boat offers you a smile-plastered-to-your-face, exhilarating thrill ride with upscale features including heavily padded seats with seat backs, custom teak floor, and large custom sunshade. And with its low centre of gravity, this catamaran is a great option for guests concerned about seasickness. During your safari, as you watch dolphins jump and whales fluke, sea lions lounge, and birds prey on fish, marine naturalists will provide interesting narration for a trip that’s both exciting and educational. At the conclusion of your whale watching safari, you’ll receive one of Mrs. Capt. Dave’s famous Triple Fudge Brownies as our way of saying “thank you”!
