“This is the only ride in the area that GUARANTEES you'll see wild dolphins! If you don't, everyone on the boat gets a free ticket for another day. The boat is large and stable and was built to attract dolphins into the wake so that you get to see them jump and play. After being on the Dolphin Racer, we rarely choose any other! On this ride you will also learn about local history, see pelicans and other sea birds, and some mansions on the intercoastal waterways, Wear sunscreen and have your camera ready! There is only one ride per day, so plan this activity into your schedule soon! www.starlitecruises.com/fleet/dolphin-racer.html”
