Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do any of the dolphin boat tours travel into the Gulf of Mexico?

The Southern Rose Dolphin tours will occasionally travel into the Gulf as long as weather and sea conditions allow for the opportunity. Many dolphin cruises do not travel into the Gulf of Mexico due to strong wind and waves which make the ride uncomfortable or even dangerous. It is also not necessary to travel into the Gulf to view dolphins and other wildlife. Your Orange Beach dolphin cruise captain will be able to find pods of dolphins, sharks, sea birds, and other exciting marine life without needing to venture into the Gulf waters.

2. Are the jet ski dolphin tours guided or self guided?

The Gulf Shores dolphin tours on jet skis are generally guided. However, jet ski rentals alone are self guided in the time frame booked. If you are hoping to find dolphins during your jet ski rental in Gulf Shores, we recommend booking a guided dolphin tour on jet ski instead of just a rental.

3. Do you actually see dolphins on these tours?

Yes, there is a great chance to see dolphins during your tours. Our staff at Tripshock has been on several and have seen dolphins everytime. Dolphins are very prevalent in Orange Beach's Gulf Coast waters, regularly cited by swimmers, boaters, and fisherman. Often, dolphins come in pods, so you is even a good chance of spotting mommas and babies during your dolphin cruise or tour.

4. What is the best time of day to see the most dolphins?

The best time to see dolphins is the earlier morning, afternoon, and evening. Pretty much anytime of day you have a chance to spot dolphins on an Orange Beach dolphin tour. You have the same chance of seeing dolphins on all tour times provided, as well as other wildlife like sharks, stingrays, and sea turtles.

5. Are their any age limit requirements for dolphin tours?

The dolphin boat tours are great for all ages from babies to grandparents. In fact, they're really one of the best kid friendly Gulf Shores activities. However, there are several jet ski dolphin tours that require the driver to be over 16, 18, or 21 years of age depending on the partner.
