Private Dolphin Tours with Live Oac

Private Dolphin Tours

Have the boat all to yourself! You and your group can book the entire boat for a totally private experience. A Private Dolphin Nature Tour can be just that, or feel free to customize your adventure with additional activities or destinations that aren't normally offered as part of a shared trip.

Our Private Dolphin Tours are typically run on our SUV Deck Boats, so SUV Boating™ Charter Rates apply (see below).

Includes most activities and destinations. Some variation in rates for fishing charters applies.

We offer a "Dolphin Guarantee" on specific outings, listed below.

Thanks to our location and the excellent local dolphin population around the Wildlife Refuge, we expect to see dolphins on our dolphin-specific trips. See below for which trips qualify. We can't control nature, so in the rare event we miss seeing dolphin, here's the deal:

If we don't see dolphin, you will receive YOUR CHOICE of either:
  • A certificate for a second outing of equal value,
  • Or a time extension (as schedule allows, if we think some additional time will make the difference… it often does)

This only happens a few times a year, so the chance of seeing dolphins is very close to 100%.

Live Oac’s “Dolphin Guarantee” applies to the following programs:

Live Oac SUV Boating™ charters can accommodate up to 6 passengers per boat, and we have multiple boats available for larger groups.

Our 2 hour Dolphin Wildlife Refuge Tour™ is our most popular. It gives us plenty of time to explore, see dolphins, and learn about the backcountry waters. For private charters looking to add activities like cast netting or crabbing, the 2 hour is typically recommended.

We can get out and have a good dolphin experience in as short as a 1 hour trip, and that is definitely recommended for groups with children 3 years or younger.

A 1½ hour trip offers a nice compromise between the two if you’re not sure.

Longer trips are available, but are generally recommended when adding other activities such as watersports, fishing, beachcombing, or destination trips.

Be sure to CALL US if you have any questions about timing and for a personalized recommendation for your group. Our captains field most of our phone calls, and we’ll give you the best suggestion based on our years of experience taking out groups just like yours.
