Tour Info and Dolphin Guarantee

New this season we are introducing our first ever money back Dolphin Guarantee if you do not see dolphins or whales between December 1, 2017 and April 1, 2018.  This year you get to choose if you want to come with us on another tour free of charge or get 50 percent of your money back. The trips we dont see any dolphins are rare, however it does happen. We see dolphins 95 percent of the trips.  We are not guaranteeing the swimming with the dolphins.  We are regulated by the Department of Conservation marine mammal permit.  There are times when legally and ethically we can not swim with dolphins.  However, we do swim with them 85% of the time.  All of our encounters are on the dolphins terms, just the way we like it.  We care about your experience and are here to serve!!

Dolphin Seafaris eco tour departs daily during the main summer season from November to May with limited service available during the winter months of July to Nov.

Step aboard a purpose-built dolphin-viewing vessel and embark on a wild encounter with the ocean's most fascinating creatures. As the winner of a trip advisor award of excellence and qualmark certification, Dolphin Seafaris provides an educational and organic experience that's completely on the dolphin's terms.
