Take an exhilarating tour on the Dolphin Racer!Watch as acrobatic bottlenose dolphin surf and dive alongside!This high-speed tour lasts between 1-1.5 hours beginning with a narration by the Captain and then leading into a breathtaking chase with nature as the speedboat picks up speed and looks for dolphin.The huge wake created by the Dolphin Racer attracts jumping dolphins.It's sure to be an adventure you will remember for a lifetime. Don't forget to bring your camera.

Enjoyed the boat ride and seeing the dolphins. The dolphins weren't as playful that day but it will still well worth the trip. We did get ours off Groupon so we only paid $14.95 per person. Well worth the 2 hours.

Ordinarily, it is $24.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can look up a Groupon and get it for much less. It's probably best to just call them to find details and check out the Groupon.

Most of our customers don't experience any motion sickness issues aboard the Dolphin Racer, but it's always a good idea to take something if you think you may have sensitivity, just to be safe :)
