Dolphin Watch

About Our Famous Dolphin Watch Trip

Our Dolphin Watch trips are by far the most unique experience offered in the Tampa Bay area. Our captains can confidently tell guests they have a 99% chance they will see dolphins from our vessels. Are they that good? Well, yes … but they also know the deck is stacked in their favor.

Boca Ciega Bay and the greater Tampa Bay area is home to over 700 healthy identified dolphins. Guests never tire of seeing them swimming along in their natural habitat. If you’re lucky, you may see them jump completely out of the water (check out our pics on Facebook). After all, they like to look at you too!

While guests occasionally spot dolphins just beyond our docks, the best way to truly experience the natural wonder of these wild sea creatures is on board one of our luxury sailing yachts and glide silently among them.

Dolphin Landings Charter Boat Center typically offers 2-3 trip times everyday. The Dolphin Watch trip is sure to delight and always a different experience. This is a wonderful trip for kids of all ages (and those who are kids at heart!) Oh yes, and be sure to bring your camera!
