We went for family wedding trip. Saw quite a few dolphins really up close. They show you local sea life also by dragging a net. We saw sting ray, star fish, small fish, crabs. They play music for entertainment and have a tour guide announcing local info. Good size boat with top side and inside full bar and air conditioning... More

We went out for a deep sea fishing trip (5hrs) and had a good time, however, it seems there are no fish in the ocean. There was only two fish caught and there was about 25 folks fishing. The crew was super helpful and getting the equiptment ready.

Friendly and on time. They gathered sea life in a net and showed passengers. Exciting to see stingrays, crabs, fish and sea stars. Also saw tins of dolphins and the gulf.

Moved boat multiple times to look for more fish. Folks at rear of boat caught almost all fish. No place to wash/clean hands. Shrimp were so small towards end of trip... More

I took my son and two granddaughters on the Eco Tour Dolphin watch and we loved it!! The boat has both inside and outside areas. It offers plenty of shelter from the Texas sun. The crew is polite and very knowledgeable. The day of our tour a sting ray was brought up to show and the girls each got to... More

We took this charter before and this time the red snapper was not in season. They could have posted that our the website so that we would know ahead of time. We were not informed until we got there. Also we did not go on the boat that is advertised on their site and were moved to a smaller boat... More
