While on your dolphin watching tour, don’t forget to take photos.

We want you to not only remember the dolphin watching experience, but also to treasure a souvenir. We encourage you to take photos during the 90-minute boat ride.

Dolphins are social creatures so don’t be afraid to approach them.

Dolphins are among the most friendly creatures on the planet. Dolphins are a friendly and sociable species. They will show off their skills by displaying their aerial moves and breaching into the water. Dolphins enjoy playing, hunting, and raising their calves as a family.

Fun fact: Dolphins enjoy traveling with their ‘friends and ‘family. They travel with groups of 10-15 dolphins, called “pods”.

It is strongly discouraged that you swim with dolphins while on your dolphin boat cruise. Instead, enjoy their natural habitat and just watch them.

We encourage you to just watch these dolphins do their thing, and not swim with them. This is for the safety of both you and the dolphins. Federal law says it is against the law to “swim with dolphins”. This is because it puts stress on them when humans swim alongside them. This can lead to aggression and agitation from the marine mammals.

Please note that sonar devices should not be brought on the dolphin-watching tour.

All sonar devices (including depth sounders and fish finders) should be turned off during the dolphin boat ride. To prevent stress from affecting marine mammals, turn your phone on silent and disable the vibration option.

Photographs of dolphins and sea creatures should be taken without flash, as it can cause anxiety.

Our dolphin watching tours will be worth every penny. Sunshine Scenic Tours can help you book your first boat ride with dolphins.
