A US Coast Guard Master Captain steers the vessel past playing dolphins and manatees lounging in their natural habitats on eco-river tours or sunset tours down the Indian River. Tours leave at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday–Sunday. Sunset tours are available on select Fridays and Saturdays; customers should call ahead to confirm for sunset tours.
Aboard a 35-foot vessel, DolFun Tours' US Coast Guard master captain guides guests on treks along the Indian River, passing the Historic Dragon Point and Mathers Turn Bridge, as well as the Eau Gallie Yacht Club . After passengers select their spots from the boat's indoor and outdoor seating areas, expeditions traverse the river's diverse estuary, where more than 4,400 species of birds and fish dwell. As the ship drifts by, visitors can catch sight of manatees resting in their natural habitats and dolphins rehearsing lines before auditioning for the next Flipper remake. Passengers can hook up their own music via an iPod plug in, bring their own food and drinks, or take a dip in the water. Along with daytime jaunts, DolFun Tours hosts sunset tours on select weekend evenings.
