Dolphin Quest

In 1848, a great hurricane washed over Florida, blasting a passage through the sand of Madeira Beach. It would be first traveled by the pirate John Levique, whose legend would lend the inlet its name, Johns Pass. But Levique was not the only individual to make use of the pass. In what is now Boca Ciega Bay, travelers can make out the cresting fins of bottlenose dolphins and the slick backs of manatees. The sailors of Dolphin Quest strive to give their passengers up-close experiences with these creatures, embarking on 90-minute tours to seek out the elusive pods. The calm waters make for a pleasant ride as the Coast Guard-licensed captain and crew narrate, largely by way of free-verse shanty. On their journeys, passengers may also see frigate birds, osprey, and pelicans craning their necks from the mangroves.
