Captain Johnny Dolphin Tours
Enjoy what Captain Stuart Wescott calls a guaranteed dolphin watch tour June through October. Not only scenic, the tour on the Captain Johnny is incredibly educational. Learn about the bottlenose dolphins that frequent our waters. See them mate and birth on many cruises, and enjoy their playful behavior.
Breathtaking views abound. There is plenty of elbowroom aboard Captain Johnny so no one misses seeing these creatures in the wild. The boat is covered for sun protection with a restroom on board. It also is Coast Guard inspected. Learned, local crews are available to answer questions about the Outer Banks. This is the kind of trip that enlivens and refreshes guests as they cruise across the water with wind in their faces!
Want to see a glorious Outer Banks sunset, too? Then choose their sunset dolphin watch. The tour departs about two hours before sunset, which varies week to week. You will be given a departure schedule when you reserve tickets. Tickets are only sold the week of the tour. Reservations are preferred, for the tour sells out early. It runs Monday thru Friday weather permitting unless a private tour has been scheduled.
So what do they mean by guaranteed? If no dolphins are found, paying passengers may ride again free during the current season (with some restrictions). Office hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Trips are scheduled at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and sunset cruise is 6:15 p.m. Call their recorded message line at 252-480-9151.
