Dolphin Cruise Tour
B L O G | S U N S H I N E S C E N I C T O U R S
Dolphins are the most mysterious
mammals in the sea. We love
watching them as they swim
majestically in the waters.
There are a lot of activities out there
that give people a chance to watch
dolphins, like circuses and aquariums,
but since those places encourage
captivity and cruelty, it is best to
watch dolphins and other sea
creatures in their natural habitat.
Lucky for us, it is easy to go on boat
rides to see dolphins and even swim
If you are planning to take a dolphin
cruise with your friends and family, it
is very important to come prepared
and know all the safety guidelines to
have a fun cruise.
In preparing for your next dolphin
watching tour, here are 4 tips to
remember to have a safe and
responsible dolphin cruise.
1. Find the Best Operator to Handle
Before going on a dolphin cruise, it is
important to prepare for everything.
Do some research beforehand and
look for the best operator to handle
and guide you on board. The trip
should be fun and exciting, as well as
educational and informative.
Having a professional guide will
provide you with everything you need
to know before, during, and after the
dolphin watching tour.
What you will need from the operator
is the overview of their company,
what to expect during the cruise,
safety guidelines, and their safety
policy on dolphin watching. Having a
responsible operator will ensure that
your trip will be smooth, safe, and
Always remember that the boat
should be at a safe distance from the
animals at all times.
Your boat should be at least 330ft
away, and maintain a calm,
predictable pattern to avoid startling
the whales and dolphins. Avoid any
sudden changes in speed, direction,
and noise level.
The boat should approach the
dolphins at a slow-pace, and steady
movement from the front or rear. If
there is a second boat, it should follow
behind the first one while
maintaining the same pace.
