Come with us and locate bottlenose dolphins and loggerhead sea turtles!


2.5 hours


Join our naturalist on a search and discovery mission on this 2.5 hour boat excursion to encounter the fascinating bottlenose dolphin and loggerhead sea turtle. Bottlenose dolphins are a common resident of our salt marshes and inlets behind the barrier islands. As you observe the dolphins feeding, playing, or simply cruising around in their native environment you will learn all about their social behavior, feeding habits, and much more. Also learn about the life history of threatened loggerhead sea turtle which we often catch sight of during the summer months. You will also have about 1 hour to get off the boat and explore Capers Island's "Bone-yard Beach".

Trips are Sunday through Friday from 6:00pm to 8:30pm during the summer months. (Memorial Day-Labor Day). In the off season trips are Sunday, Weds and Friday evenings with times scheduled to coordinate with sunset.
