There are few things in this world that are as enchanting as catching a family of dolphins
frolicking in the crystal clear waters of Anna Maria Island. The Florida Bottle Nose
Dolphin is commonly seen on our shores and once you have your first sighting many seek a interactive dolphin experience and Anna Maria Island has some epic dolphin tours. We’ll list our recommendations below for the best tours, locations and photo ops! The local areas offer dolphin tours, these are aquatic outings where you observe schools of dolphins while being guided by a captain who is familiarized with their local hangouts and see them in their natural habitat. Then there are dolphin experiences, these run at a higher ticket price of course and are not as abundantly
offered as the dolphin tours. Dolphins typically travel in a posse’, grow to be 5-8ft and are actually a mammal-relying on a natural air supply and nursing they’re little dolphin babies (cue the “awwwwwwe’s”), which they have about every 2-3 years, they can even have twins! They eat about 30lb’s of fish each year and the dolphin tours usually come prepared with their favorites for you to throw. Calving season from Florida runs late April to May, since dolphins like to give birth in shallow water’s spotting of the whole am are frequent during this time of year-head over to the beach today and see if you can catch a glimpse of our favorite Florida mammal! Take a look at the bottom page video and see some live local footage of Nicholas at Clearwater Aquarium live in action!
