Boat Tours for Dolphin Lovers

Dolphin Boat Tour

People of all ages love dolphins. The Indian River Lagoon is teeming with bottlenose dolphins, one of the most intelligent and fascinating mammals on Earth — or in the water. A Vero Tackle & Watersports tour allows you to see these mesmerizing creatures in their natural habitat. You might even get to hear them “speak” to one another.

If you book one of our dolphin boat rides in Vero Beach, we strongly recommend that you request First Mate Mildred, our friendly golden retriever, to come along. Mildred isn’t great at helping steer the boat, but she does have a sharp nose for bottlenose dolphins.

Enjoy a Magnificent Vero Beach Sunset With a Pontoon Boat Tour

Tiki Boat Tour

Head off into the sunset of one of our sunset private boat tours. This tour is one of our most popular tour times.  This is one of the best times to see the wildlife if that is something that you are into.  For much marine life, this is the best time for feeding as the low light makes it difficult for the predators to find them.  Then, of course, we know you will enjoy this trip because you will be comfortable in our pontoon boats. The small size makes it very easy to relax and stay connected to the rest of your party. If you are looking for shade, sit under the canopy or spend time under the open Florida skies. Onboard we will have a cooler and you can bring your favorite snacks along for the trip. What is a better sunset view than from one of our pontoon boats on the river?  I sure can’t think of anything, call us to set up your sunset trip!
