The Dolphin Watch and Ecology Tour combination begins with the crew of the Double Sunshine dragging a net along the floor of the Laguna Madre and bringing up live specimens of marine life. The sea life is then put into our living salt water laboratory where a Crew Member gives a presentation on what has been brought up in the net before the specimens are returned to the water. After the Eco Tour presentation the Double Sunshine continues the excursion following the dolphin pods around the Laguna Madre.
Join us for a relaxing morning cruise aboard the Double Sunshine. One of the most unique activities on South Padre Island is the dolphin watching tour. South Texas is a year-round home to several large pods of dolphin and The Original Dolphin Watch is your ticket to viewing them in all their natural splendor. One of the most memorable activities you will take part in while visiting South Padre is a cruise with us. Share the thrill of meeting bottle-nose and spinner dolphins in the wild and experience the unique bond and kinship they inspire in mankind.
