$10 for a Dolphin-Watching Speedboat Trip (Up to $21.45 Value)

Up to 125 passengers board an open-topped speedboat at Corey Causeway, casting off into the glittering blue of the Gulf of Mexico as they search for finned friends. The captain identifies picturesque beaches and waterways as he zooms along, creating a 3- to 4-foot wave in the boat’s wake. This wake attracts bottlenose dolphins that surf, leap, and twirl into it in full view of patrons and their cameras. Cruises typically depart at 1:30 p.m. daily, and last 60–75 minutes.

Dolphin Racer Speed Boat

The thrum of the Dolphin Racer—Florida West Coast Cruise's speedboat—carries through the water like an ice-cream truck's jingle. A 4-foot-high wake trails behind, fanning out into a fork as the speed increases and the passengers ready their cameras. Soon, a glistening fin breaks the surface. The first bottlenose dolphin seems to levitate on top of the wave while it bodysurfs for the sheer fun of it, then disappears back into the sea. Its pod follows suit, leaping, splashing, and riding the swells, soaking up the attention of the human spectators.

Sights like this are typical on the Dolphin Racer Speed Boat. The sunny yellow craft skirts across the waterways of the Gulf Beaches on 60- to 90-minute trips while up to 125 people lounge on the open deck and the captain narrates the sights of the passing beaches. Ample viewing space ensures that cameras can capture split-second jumps and spins when the dolphins heed the call to play. Whether it's because of the thrill of breaching, the pride in their celebrity status, or an underwater bet to see who can communicate with humans first, the dolphins' presence is virtually guaranteed—the boat offers a complimentary future cruise in the case of no-shows.

Fun In The Sun. Dolphins were Awesome. Captain was funny and informative. Great Pics. Kids had fun. Mom & Dad relaxed and enjoyed the ride. FYI, Get a seat as close to the rear as possible. This is where the Dolphins ride the wake.

Lots of Fun, Great People on board, And you will DEFINITELY see lots of Dolphin racing and jumping along side of the boat! If you want to see the baby dolphins, now is the time! I saw a few mothers with their calf, jumping and having fun with the waves of the boat! We got LOTS of great pictures too!

It was an awesome experience. Where I was sitting, the dolphins were only about 8 feet away! I loved it and will go back.
