Where are we going today?

There is nothing quite as magical as seeing the beautiful ocean wildlife spring out of the water in their natural habitat.

Dolphin Connection Texas are just who you need to take the whole family out for an experience you will never forget!

Spend the day out on the ocean with the smartest creatures in the ocean, and watch them play and swim beneath the boat - they may even come up and say hello!  If you're lucky, you might be able to stroke them! Amazing!

If you're worried about being on a big boat with a lot of people who all want to be in the front - don't! Dolphin Connection Texas have a maximum of six people (yep - six!) that go out on the boats at any one time. They also only go out during the peak viewing times, so they do really guarantee up close sightings! That also means you have to make sure you book!

The tours last from 1 - 2 hours - just make sure you don't forget your camera! You are going to be in for a treat!

Want a more unique experience? Did you know that with Dolphin Connection you can even hire a kayak to make your own way to the dolphins? Ingleside Cove is one of the safest bodies of water on the Gulf Coast, so you won't have anything to worry about as you sit back and watch the dolphins play at your boat.

The dolphins aren't the only creatures that you will come across. Kids - can you guess what else you will spot? If you guessed turtles, fish, shorebirds and even stringrays, you would be right! You can even pull your kayak up and enjoy some beachcombing or fishing.

What an amazing family day out!

    A group of us did this today and it was great. Lots of free dolphins came up to the boat to check us out, including some babies. The folks that run things are great. You should check it out.
