Terrific experience to witness many dolphins up close. My grandchildren were very excited to see dolphins in the wild that got close enough to touch them. The captain was very personable and made everyone relax for the voyage. Words of advice...don't forget your sunblock. We loved the whole trip!!!!

Went on the Dolphin Racer with my 14 yr old daughter, my brother & his girlfriend. We really enjoyed the ride from beginning to end. Capt. Dennis told some fun facts about Dolphins & interesting stories of the areas we drove by. Thank you Dolphin Racer staff it was a great ride! I'll definitely recommend this to everyone I know.

Great ride in a twin engine speedboat with travel in the bay (s) & the Gulf of Mexico; with good historical & geographic commentary. Wait ... did I forget the Dolphins? Those super surfers are a great attraction!

Because we had such a great time two years ago on the Dolphin Racer, we took our friend out again on March 23rd as part of his 60th birthday celebration. We'd been telling our friends what a fun adventure The Dolphin Racer is but I don't think they really understood how great it is 'til they experienced it for themselves.... More
