BEST dolphin watch around and highly experienced captain & crew! My boyfriend and I came for our anniversary and while dolphin are not guaranteed, the crew searches up and down the coastline with such enthusiasm! I appreciate the committment to safety on this vessel and having a couple briefings of what to expect for those who have never been out. For those who have docked points or left one stars, the captain offers a FULL REFUND prior to leaving the dock because as stated... they are wild animals and there is no guarantee. Despite not finding dolphin, we spotted a Loggerhead turtle (incredible and beautiful animals). Just going on a boat ride and getting out into the open ocean was the highlight of our day. Not only does the captain and crew search several miles up and down the coastline but they provided history of the area and MY FAVORITE: WONDERFUL ADVOCATES FOR THE OCEANS! This company cares about the well-being of the ocean and its creatures. It is a carbon-neutral tour! If you're in the area and want to ride with the best of the best and learn important information, this eco-tour is the way to go! I highly recommend booking your next dolphin watch adventure with this company and we can't wait to come back! BLUE WAVE ADVENTURES YOU ROCK 🐬💙!!!

Well, the dolphin cruise was great. If we could've controlled the weather and made dolphins appear, it would've been perfect. The company makes it very clear that dolphin sighting is not a guarantee. We knew a storm had come through, and figured the dolphins would be out in deeper waters. They were. But we still enjoyed ourselves. The captain was quite humorous, and we saw some beautiful coastline. They warned us that the water was bumpy, but it didn't seem that bad. I only heard one woman asking for the blue bag (which then became her souvenir lol!) I would highly recommend the Blue Wave dolphin cruise.

Amazing! Show stopping! Spectacular! He didn’t promise Dolphins but WOW! We saw probably 20 at various times within the 1.5 hour tour, including absolutely precious babies! Loved the tour but loved the passion even more! HUGE thanks for helping protect our coastlines!

Small group tour on the Osprey was very relaxing and informative. We rode with the longtime owner and an experienced Captain.. Just the right amount of informative discussion. This group knew exactly where to go and seemed to really know the species behaviors and the local Dolphins. They also demonstrated a great respect for the environment. I highly recommend. Parking around Crazy Sister can be...crazy so leave yourself a few extra minutes but that is probably why they say to get there 45 min early.
