You will join our dolphin scientists on a 3-hour long, wind-in-your-hair-style expedition. Recreational, engaging, and fun, our interpretative tours will get you a close-up look of wild dolphins, creating memorable and transformative experiences that will last a lifetime. Don’t forget to bring your camera so you can capture it all. You will be interested to note, that we collect important scientific information during our dolphin tours. Depending on the sea state, we also use a hydrophone to listen to the symphony of sounds beneath the waves. Together, you have the unique opportunity to experience conservation research in action and - to the degree you wish - be an active participant as a citizen conservation scientist. We conduct our dolphin tours aboard the 33-ft Osprey, equipped with comfortable jockey seats. Modeled after fast-response Coast Guard rescue vessels, the Osprey combines extraordinary stability while cruising at up 25-35 knots. But please note, even though we almost always encounter dolphins, Mother Nature does not guarantee anything. However, should you not see a dolphin you can come again for free.
I have been exploring the lives of dolphins for decades. For the last 15 years, I have been studying dolphins in Palm Beach County, focusing on the socio-ecology of the animals and how their overall health relates to our own health and wellbeing. Focused on environmental stewardship, conservation and wildlife education, I've created these dolphin tours to provide people of all walks of life the opportunity to watch wild dolphins up close, while using the revenues to finance the important conservation work of the Palm Beach Dolphin Project/Taras Oceanographic Foundation.

Its flagship program is the Palm Beach Dolphin Project, a long-term conservation research study of wild dolphins living along the coast of the Palm Beaches, Florida.

Our dolphin tours take us out to the open ocean through the Jupiter or Palm Beach Inlet, along the coast of the Palm Beaches and at times - depending on the weather - into the Intracoastal Waterway north of Jupiter. Since we are looking for, and then following the dolphins, the exact route varies from one tour to another. Notable landmarks we may pass are the Jupiter Lighthouse, Juno Beach Pier, Sailfish Marina, The Breakers and Mar-o-Lago.
