Awesome dolphin day well Spent with family
, Aug 2022
Had a great time with my family and crew was friendly. We saw lots of dolphins and learned a lot about Galveston. My family and I are from Sacramento and just wanted something cool to do. This was awesome
Very unprofessional people that work there
, Aug 2022
On our way to the dolphin tour we had a blowout and was on the interstate for over 3 hours. So we missed our tour time. When I called they said that they could not give us another tour till Wednesday which we were leaving on Tuesday. I told her that wasn't possible and asked if I could receive my money back and the girl got very hateful with me and use the f word at me and called me a b****. Very very unprofessional people that work there

Amazing experience
, Aug 2022
We had to leave early for weather purposes that no one could control, but in the way back we got to see a dolphin. The team was amazing at trying to keep everyone dry in the middle of this storm. They were very kind and promised a full refund. Up until that point the tour was funny, family friendly, and enjoyable.
