Beauty of the Bottlenose

This Gulf Shores tour is dedicated to getting close to dolphins—to watching them play and show off, and appreciating the seemingly effortless way they glide through the waters. During the dolphin tour in Gulf Shores, you’ll learn about the ecology, diet, life cycles, and social habits of the bottlenose dolphin, helping you appreciate these creatures even more.

These playful and sometimes sneaky creatures are unpredictable, so the company cannot guarantee you’ll see them. Even so, the places you’ll visit offer the best chances you can get, and you’ll get to see plenty of gorgeous bird species on the way too!
