O. F.

We had a group of 21 and by booking ahead they were able to accommodate us. The Captain found a pod of Dolphins and they stayed around our boat for ten to fifteen minutes. I had never been that close to Dolphins in the ocean. Our entire party really enjoyed the Doplhins and the sight seeing tour.

Fun cruise! Even our kids, aged 18, 16 and 12 enjoyed this trip to see dolphins. Would definitely do it again. We saw a lot of Dolphins on the day we went out.

O. V.

We have been coming the outer banks for 17 years and have recently grown very fond of paradise dolphin tours. Captain Dave and his right hand man Andrew are phenomenally knowledgeable and friendly. We saw scores of dolphins around the boat (which was very well kept and clean). Our family has been annual customers and are never disappointed and easily get our money's worth. Don't be afraid to ask for some stories because these veterans are full of them! Highly recommended you check it out if you're in the area!

My family and I took a sunset cruise last week. It didn't take long before we were surrounded by dolphins! It was so much fun seeing them in the wild. The Captain and Guide were very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great time and I highly recommended it!

We had a great time with Captain Dave and his assistant Andrew. This was our 2nd visit and again it did not disappoint. We learned more about the Dolphins and their world. It's not a canned tour it is tailored to each group. We saw a large pod of dolphins and there were a few babies in the pod too. I highly recommend this cruise as a break from the beach or for any animal lover.

I had a great time on the dolphin tour. We came at a great time and saw tons of dolphins and many came right up close. Out mate Andrew was very nice and very informative, great guy overall. Our Captain was very nice as well. Overall, had a great time, definitely worth our money.

Frequently Asked Questions

1What is the best time for a cruise?
Any time is the best time for a cruise!! It is really a personal preference.
2Do you guarantee that I will see dolphins?
Yes. We do guarantee that you will see dolphins or ride again for free. The dolphins are wild and are free to move about in the sound. We are the closest to the dolphin and we know where they feed in the Roanoke Sound. It is just a matter of finding them and the ride is wonderful itself.
3How long are your cruises?
Our cruises last 2 hours. It usually depends on how far we have to go to locate the dolphins. Some days we can see them right from the dock.
4Are reservations required?
Yes. A reservation holds your spot on the boat. We do allow walk-ons if room is available. We simply need your name and number in party and a phone number so we can reach you in case something changes (like the weather). A credit card is required to hold your reservation.
5Where does the cruise go?
We cruise the Roanoke Sound. We do not venture into the ocean.
