OUR DOLPHIN TOURS
Join us for an opportunity to observe some of the most intelligent, playful and athletic of all sea creatures. Our dolphin cruise provides the opportunity to see dolphins in the wild. There are a number of dolphin pods in the area. We know where to look for them and strive to make every dolphin tour a fun and successful adventure. In that dolphins are wild creatures and therefore unpredictable, we cannot guarantee that we will always encounter a dolphin pod. We can honestly say that seldom do we sail on Wind Star, whether a dolphin cruise or not, that we do not successfully see dolphins. During a dolphin cruise we will make it our primary goal to locate dolphins. When we do find dolphins we use Wind Star's size and wake to encourage dolphins to play on our bow and stern waves. We are sure that you will have a great time on your tour.
