About the Dolphin Explorer

Dolphins are very curious creatures and sometimes come up to the boat to check you out. Maybe YOU will get to look one of these mammals right in the eye!

The Dolphin Explorer is a 36-ft. catamaran powered by two 225 HP outboards capable of carrying up to 24 passengers. Because of its design, it is perfect for both navigating the water of the Gulf and the backwater estuaries of the area.

An excellent platform for survey work, it’s unsurpassed  to observe marine life and for photography. The Dolphin Explorer’s design and power are perfect for wildlife viewing and for fabulous photographs.

The vessel provides a choice of sun or shade for those with children, a “head,” complimentary water, and shelling bags. Be sure to bring sunglasses, your camera, sunscreen, and any snacks you and the family might enjoy.

There are two Marco Island dolphin survey trips daily, one in the morning departing at 9 a.m., the second departs in the afternoon at 1 p.m.

Our dolphins are very, very curious and sometimes come near the boat. Sometimes, we’re not sure who is studying who!
