Cold Mil Dolphin Boat Tours

Offering a selection of tours, from morning through sunset, there is a cruise to fit everyone! We chose the morning Double Surf dolphin boat cruise to keep the grandkids busy, and it was an excellent choice. Two of the boats in the fleet cruise side-by-side, and create a perfect wave to beckon dolphins.

Meeting at the Bear Creek Marina, check-in is at the small store to the right of the marina. After check-in, it was time to board, with a deckhand assisting. Once seated the deckhand passes out the life jackets to the kids and goes over the safety instruction. As we cruise out of the marina and into the waterway, the excitement is building as we learn about the habits of the bottlenose dolphin.

Dolphins Sighted on the Dolphin Boat Tour!

Suddenly a shout arose, “Dolphins! Look over there!” and it was all heads turned and eyes searching for the dolphins. As we searched, a family of three dolphins suddenly appeared, surfing the wave created by the boats cruising in tandem.

The dolphin raced beneath the waves, gaining speed, and then shot out of the water, flipping over the waves. The smallest dolphin, our guide said was a little over a year old, was jumping and playing in tandem with one of the older dolphins – it was amazing to see. Under the water they twisted from side to side, racing, gaining momentum, keeping pace with the boat. I could see one of his eyes clearly – they seemed to speak right to me, “Watch this!” And with that, he leaped out of the water again and again.

As the boat cruised along the waterway, and between dolphin watches, the guide invited the kids to use scoop nets and “fish” for small fish and crabs in the boat's live well. Plenty of little “shiners” and small blue crabs, minus their claws, kept the kids busy.

Dolphin Boat Tours are a Great Way to Start the Day!

Sadly our 90-minute cruise was over too soon, and we headed back to the dock. Everyone wore looks of wonder on their faces, mesmerized by the delightful dancing, playful dolphins.
