Daytona Beach
Dolphin and Manatee Boat Tours

Enjoy a 90 minute dolphin and manatee tour aboard our shaded 32-passenger flat bottom boat. Ponce Inlet Watersports offers many selections and one of the most popular is our tours.

 

Cruise the intracoastal waterways between Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach, Florida on our dolphin and manatee tour boat searching for:

 

  • Dolphins
  • Sting Rays
  • Shore Birds
  • Sea Turtles
  • Manatees

 

What you can bring:

 

  • Snacks/Food
  • Beverages

 

On every trip, we set anchor and get off the boat to explore spoil Islands along the Intracoastal waterways and collect shells.

 

Don’t forget to look for sand dollars and check crab traps. (Collection methods vary depending on conditions)

 

**Bonus: We also have an ice cream stand. Lots of delicious flavors, and doggie scoops on the house! 

Don't just take our word for it

We had an awesome tour and Lauren was great! We didn’t see any dolphins or manatees but we did get to see a sea turtle and a manna ray as we docked after the tour. Very entertaining and educational.

We went today September 3, 2021 and please forgive me I don’t remember their names but the captain and the crew are both females very educational. love seeing the dolphins and learning all about the area. Will definitely come again the next time I am visiting Florida. They also recommended going to the marine center which we did before hand, also very educational and only five dollars per person. we did not visit the lightHouse unfortunately. Maybe next time. All in all very enjoyable experience

Amazing day with Ponce Inlet Watersports! The captain and first mate made it most enjoyable with engaging information of the area while servicing the waterways from removal of any garbage or debry. They even interacted with my young children while making them have fun but also feel safe! We did see a few dolphins and other species native to the area! Very reasonably priced and it great boat ride around the light house!

Amazing boat trip today with the Ponce Inlet Watersports today!! The captain and first mate made the trip super exciting and informative although not much dolphin or manatee sitings!! Well worth the trip and reasonably priced!! Thank you!! Will continue to bring out of state guests to your services in the future!!!

Update: I forgot to mention how accommodating and attentive the whole boat staff where to my little ones who asked questions upon questions and then spoke about the new Luca movie (under the sea creatures) and with out a beat didn't ruin the imagination of a little boy but encouraged it!!

I’m a local and took a tour with my young daughter so she could experience a boat ride before she heads to to camp. She was very nervous. The crew were so considerate and friendly and my daughter had an incredibly experience! I, myself, was very impressed by the knowledge of our crew! They are very informed on the biology and ecology of the area. I did not expect to have so much fun!

Gina & Captain Dan were awesome: friendly, experienced and funny! We were thankful to have found Ponce Inlet Watersports after a company in Clearwater canceled our dolphin tour at the last minute due to boat maintenance issues. And the Ponce Inlet price was phenomenal, more than worth it for the high quality experience, boat, and staff. It was fun to see the dolphins up close! Will definitely return with my family at a later date!

My family and I decided to do the 10am dolphin and Manatee tour during our vacation on 6/29. We had such a fun time. Our son was so excited to get on a boat and search for wildlife. They provide adult and children lifejackets which is a HUGE plus. We got to see some of the native birds and a pod of dolphins too. I love that captain Tom will stop the boat and turn around when wildlife is spotted so everyone on the boat can see. Our guide Bailey was INCREDIBLY knowlageable about the area and wildlife too. The stop at shell island was also cool. You are able to get off the boat and walk the beach, get in the water, shell hunt ect. They provide shell bags for everyone too, and the shells are plentiful on this island. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Very family friendly, affordable, the staff is professional and funny too. Check them out on social media as well, they will post pictures from your tour also. Thank you captain Tom and tour guide Bailey!

We took my sister out to sea for the last time. A small informal celebration. JIffy and Captain Josh were absolutely wonderful - very caring, sincere and patience.
With our time schedule, Jiffy said he would take care of everything...AND he did !
Josh knew exactly when to help us and when to step back. His professionalism made our trip most memorable. Not only that, he's quite a character !! ...
For sure, we strongly and highly recommend this company AND Captain Josh .

Captain and first mate very friendly and educational about Dolphins and manatees. Child friendly . Allowed them to sit at steering wheel of boat . Both of my nephews got too . One was 8 the other 11 (looks older ) but the captain allowed him to do when going faster on boat . This truly meant a lot to me and I know it effected Isaac. Thank you again . The best money spent on our trip from Kentucky . First time to Daytona area for me and first time ocean experience for my nephews . Highly recommend ! Also the first mate helped me on and off boat , which I truly appreciated .

We actually got a flat tire in our rental on the way and they even waited for us to arrive. Tom the captain and Tom the biologist were awesome! And we actually rescued an injured sea turtle ❤️ I would definitely come back! Thank you guys for such an amazing experience! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We were questioning if we made the right decision to take two, two and under on the boat tour!! It was worth it (with plenty of snacks). The tour guides make the experience so worth it and the stop at the end to explore was the perfect ending! Thank you 😊

Our experience was pretty amazing! Not everyone caught a fish but the experience made up for it! We learned that you are able to hold these type of jelly fish and we even seen dolphins while on our fishing trip. It was a little chilly and our tour guide offered his jacket to my daughter. I would highly recommend for a family outing while visiting!

My Daughter and I took the Dolphin Manatee 90 minute boat tour and really enjoyed it! Right from the parking lot to the boat, the staff was amazing, helpful, and kind. Our boat tour started a bit late due to a large group running behind, but the crew was fantastic. The cruise itself was beautiful, on a hot sunny day, no manatees, but a handful of dolphins, birds, and jelly fish. A quick stop at a little beach was nice and the crew really cares about the environment and the animals which is really nice. Highly recommend and we will be back!

We were in for bike week and took a 90 minute dolphin Manatee tour which we were talked into by one of the employees. I couldn’t believe the quality of the trip for the price.

We saw many dolphins in the wild and although we didn’t see any manatees, We got a very thorough education about The channels, inlets, and safety while navigating them, as well as a front row seat to the wildlife preservation efforts of the staff. It is clear that everyone on the boat had a heart toward preserving the animals. The animals seem the priority for the crew and that was very touching to see. We learned about all of the wildlife that we did spot along the shoreline. We learned about mangroves and oyster beds. (Ouch!) we had a great stop at Shell Island as well. I mean the island was just OK but my smoking friends were really happy for the break. It doesn’t hurt that an ice cream boat showed up “conveniently“ upon our arrival and one of my biker friends decided to treat the boat. If you are a smoker I highly recommend this move so that the tour keeps the stop at Shell Island. I mean there really isn’t a lot of shelling to be done there... do you know what I mean?LOL.

Captain Daniel and first mate Amber treated everybody with dignity and respect no matter how they were dressed. In fact,every staff member from the parking attendant to the trainees It was an excellent, customer-first focused individual. Terrific outing. highly recommend.

I cannot thank Doc and Ashley enough for my first time fishing experience. Very customer oriented, taught me to bate a hook, cast and fish and I brought in four fish, a nice red, a black drum, and two jacks. Great trip, would absolutely fish with them again.
Doc knew exactly where to go to hit the fishing holes. Doc filleted all the fish for us and then we headed to “Off the Hook” up the street from the marina and they cooked all our fish for us. Delicious! Thank you again Doc and Ashley!!!

Shortly after check in we boarded the boat with Danielle and Captain Rob. We learned so much about the history and wildlife around us, all while enjoying a nice breeze on the boat. Both informative and fun!!

A stop to a sandbar/island area to collect shells was a delight. Capt. Rob even took his flip flops off and went in knee deep water to grab a she'll my husband spotted from shore. Danielle helped identify and gather shells too. It was so nice to chat and share the excitement of our finds with them.

We will definitely be making regular trips out with them and bringing our out of town visitors too.

Thanks to the staff and crew! 👏👍🛥️🐚🐬

We had a wonderful Captain and first mate!! They were very attentive and knowledgeable about the area. I don't know how to fish and neither do my 8 and 7 year olds, but we all ended up catching fish and had a great time. You can't go wrong with the price either. I would highly recommend!! Thanks for a great experience and if I'm ever in the Daytona area again, I would definitely do the fishing charter everytime!

Had an awesome time with family that came down to visit us from Indiana. Captain Dave, and I believe his name was Nick, and the photographer were all great! Definitely recommend checking this place out if you get the chance. I went parasailing in Key West and bought the photographers SD card with the pictures and videos and they were so terrible. The pictures and videos that Ponce Inlet Water Sports take are so crystal clear!

Our 8 and 5 year old sons have been wanting to fish in the ocean like on the show Catching Monsters but also wanted to see wild life and find some seashells. I contacted Ponce inlet water sports and they recommended chartering a boat with Captain John. Our 4 hour fishing, dolphin and seashell finding boat ride was nothing short of fantastic. Captain John was great with our kids (and our 17 month old!!) and we all had so much fun. We caught several different type of fish and some were keepers that we took home and ate for dinner. I highly recommend them. We will be back next year!

I highly recommend the back water fishing with captain John!!! He is an amazing guide and a genuinely nice person! We had so much fun, he told us a little about the area and got us set up quickly. We caught 8 fish in a little over an hour (4 different species) and then on our way back he stopped so we could look for shells. We then got a surprise and saw a storm rolling in. He got us back fast and safe before it started raining! We appreciate the friendliness and the professionalism of the entire crew! Thank you all so much for a great time!!

We went on the dolphin and manatee tour. We thought we was guaranteed to see them but it turns out you are not guaranteed. We didn’t see anything other than birds. They said they didn’t see anything the tour in front of us either. Our kids was disappointed as well as the adults. We had 9 people in our group. We felt like it was a waste of money. The crew was nice.

Captain Doc and Captain Kristy were the best. Kept all of us entertained with facts and interesting tidbits of information regarding the estuarian habitat and inhabitants in addition to some of the history of the area. Everyone caught fish and special attention was given to the kids who were having as much fun as anyone on the boat, without taking away anything from any adults on board. Would definitely recommend the trip for a fun day and fishing as well. Very educational for Arizona people... enjoyed all of it!!!

We have had the best experience with this company. This is my first time in Daytona Beach and we have spent 3 days of our week long vacation with Ponce Inlet Water Sports. Their staff is top notch which sets them above others in the area. Jiffy who works inside is not only knowledge about everything you’d possibly want to do on the water but patient and cares about your experience. He’s first class! Haley, Captain Rob and Captain John where also so knowledgeable and quite funny as we took the Dolphin & Manatee Tour. This was such a relaxing experience. These three were so funny and made our experience so much fun!

If you’re in this part of Florida, please make sure you put this on your list of “must do’s!” You won’t regret it!

I chose this activity because of all the great reviews and it surpassed my expectations. Capt. Jack and his mate/guide Kristy were amazing. We saw dolphins several times as well as other local wildlife and learned so much about the ecosystem. The guide even caught a jellyfish to bring aboard to show us and let the children hold and touch. When we stopped to look for shells at a small island Kristy was immediately available to take great pics of people with the lighthouse in the background. I highly recommend the 90 minute eco tour, it’s fun for all ages!

LOVED IT! Went on the 4 hour fishing tour this morning and it was awesome! My daughter has special needs and the Captain and crew Kristi I believe were so good with her! Woman on our boat caught a SHARK! Incredible to see - the crew helped her but let her do all the fighting and reeling. I caught a puffer fish! We all caught many mangrove snappers and when we came back the Captain cleaned and filet them and the shark! Dinner will be delicious!
We also saw dolphins, osprey and sting Rays. The crew was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I would go again and highly recommend to anyone. Reasonable price too.

They truly care about the needs and experience of their clients. After more than a year of working on our “Burial at Sea” for my daughter, we finally were able to accomplish it. Not only are they respectful but they went out of their way to make it beyond amazing. They filled out a burial certificate with exact coordinates, wind speeds and wave height. Captain John helped with pictures and even circled the site so we could video. Then, after we finished our ceremony he took us to see the dolphins......

Ponce Inlet Water Sports is beyond amazing. I highly recommend them.

I am not the most coordinated person...I fell twice right off the bat...but Bryan's explicit instructions kept me and my husband and daughter balanced and loving the feel of paddleboarding for the remainder of our 2 hour tour! We were fortunate to see a hog-nosed ray, a stingray, jellyfish, cormorants, and other sea birds and wildlife...not too shabby for first-timers! Thank you, Bryan, for your expertise and patience. You made our first paddleboarding experience incredible and unforgettable, and it was amazing to bask in the beauty of Ponce Inlet and its wildlife!!! I want to do this again! Amazing adventure!

We lost a family member unexpectedly and we traveled from Michigan and Alabama to take care of things..needing an emotional break, they were the only place touring when we called they held the boat for us not even knowing the circumstances! And we had an amazing relaxing, and very informational tour! It was the exact stress reducer we all needed! And the dolphins def did not disappoint us...it was awesome! Thank you staff you were great!!!

On a chilly day we made a last minute decision to head out on this excursion. WE HAD A BLAST! Captain John and Hailey were a pleasure to spend time with. Between the MANY dolphin sightings, they shared a ton of interesting information about the area and wildlife! Our party had senior citizens, adults and small kids and everyone had a great time. If you are considering booking an excursion, BOOK today!

They lived up to my expectations... which isn’t easy... I was very happy with the experience... the Captain and tour guide had wonderful upbeat personalities and they really engaged with their guests on the boat... they took their time to give us interesting facts about the birds and dolphins we saw... they gave information about some of the homes we saw along the way..... I especially liked that the Captain was able to answer my question about how the lighthouse has survived the storms it has weathered over time... they were courteous were wonderful with answering questions.. when we started seeing the dolphins they took time to make sure we had the best opportunity to see them... seeing a dolphin in its natural habitat was on my bucket list... thanks to Ponce Inlet Water Sports I can cross that off my list... I’d do the trip again without a doubt and the price was absolutely affordable... I recommend them with a full 5 stars.... Wonderful adventure... THANK YOU....

Thank you Captain John and Ponce Inlet Water Sports for an awesome private charter fishing trip!!!!!

We had a goal to go fishing while visiting New Symrna​ Beach. Kinda disappointed that the swells were too big to go deep sea fishing...but we found a place that did "backwater fishing". We figured why not, we wanna go fishing! And the price was right.

Not really knowing what to expect, we packed some beer and sandwiches (and sunscreen, of course!) and headed to Ponce Inlet.

Easy peasy 'check-in'. A short drive to the marina and we were ready to go! A private boat just for us...how cool! Captain John was super chill and welcoming...which we were so thankful for!

We not only had a memorable time fishing (caught 11 different species!), but also saw manatees and dolphins! It was magical :)

Captain John is so knowledgeable about the area it felt like we were on a sight seeing cruise!

Freshly filleted fish that we walked over to the rum bar next door and they cooked it up for us. Delish!

I will definitely come back again whenever I'm in the area and would recommend it to anyone looking to have an amazing Floridan adventure!

My husband and I took the dolphin manatee tour today and it was awesome! The captain of our boat and our other tour guider was so informative about all the areas we toured, the sea life, and also kept us laughing frequently. It was so cool to dock during the tour at the seashell beach and have the fun of searching for shells. So enjoyable and relaxing. The price of the tour was very affordable. A great time! I highly recommend it!

Our family of 5 had a great time fishing with Capt. Doc and first mate McKenzie. We were catching fish within 15 minutes of leaving the dock. We ended up with a pretty big catch and had a fantastic time. Capt. Doc even cut our fish and bagged them for us. This will be our go to fishing location every year when we visit Ponce Inlet.

I booked our boat tour for Monday the 14th of August. A little confused when we first arrived but once everything was taken care of money etc., it went smoothly. Our price was quoted as $300 but when we got there Jiffy said it was $350 not a big deal. We met Captain John and he brought us on board. It was a 4 hour excursion with my family a total of 6. We planned on tubing, fishing and island hoping. We did do fishing and island hoping and that was fine with all of us. We saw Dolphins that was so cool to see and baby one too. Amazing weather and can't say enough good things about Captain John! He helped my grandson's fish well he helped all of us fish and even let Carl drive the boat he was in heaven. When we stopped on the island's we found sand dollars and crabs and sea shells that was so much fun too. Would recommend this to anyone and everyone who likes to go out for a couple of hours and enjoy the scenery and catching some fish and just relaxing and seeing the beautiful dolphins. We all had a terrific time. Thanks Captain John for making our day a super one. The Westphal's from Wisconsin!!!!

John guided us to some great fishing spots, baited our lines and was super informative about all our catches! We spent a little time cooling off at a tidal pool while the kids tossed a casting net and hunted for hermit crabs. We can't wait to do this again!!!

Today my growing crew of 8 went on the eco tour with Captain Samantha and Danielle. It was wonderful, peaceful, educational, and we were excited to be able to see the mantatee. Although, this mantatee was in distress, so the boat stopped to call it in and get help for the momma and her devoted baby that followed her. I would love to read any updates on our friend from today. Thank you for a wonderful experience and knowledge that was shared with us. Although, we didn't see any dolphins, but that is nature and to be expected so no worries. I highly recommend this 90 minute tour for an educational and relaxing experience.

They were the most awesome ppl to have us aboard their boat. Very well versed on their job. These two made the trip so much more enjoyable The use of their fire bucket was very much appreciated. Since it was a first for them bit i didn't get the pic of you two and my wife holding the bucket Lol. Thank you for everything We will recommend this company to anyone

Before you read my review you should know I'm in no way affiliated with the company. Check Trip Advisor for a few reviews I've done there.

Best. Boat. Tour. Ever.

Captain John with his punny humor, charisma, knowledge and experience led our expedition. His willingness to stop the boat for almost 15 minutes so we didn't just slowly idle past something we saw in the distance created an amazing moment for all of us. Because of it, we saw Dolphins. A BABY DOLPHIN! Up close! A lot of others on the boat saw a manatee. I didn't get to see him or her because I got caught up in the beautiful view all around me and the feel of the of the boat moving through the water. I love being out on a boat and don't get to do it very often... not being a millionaire. � Not for a moment did I feel unsafe.

I experienced the quiet vibration of awe when everyone on the boat went still and watched these beautiful beings we share our world with in their natural habitat. (A first for me.) And, wow, the cathedral like vibration of excitement we all felt when we first saw and met them. I don't have words for that moment. Thanks, Captain John. That'll stay with me forever.

We stopped on an island so everyone could check out the terrain and gather shells. Through pure luck and Captain John checking the time of it, we had the extraordinary good fortune of seeing a shuttle launch while we were there. Wowzers

The Amazing Danielle (It really is her job title. Seriously. She more than lived up to it.)...How do I count the ways of the pure awesomeness that is her? I've been on a few boat tours since moving to Florida and, years ago, was a tour guide for the Gone With The Wind Festival tours back in GA. Being a tour guide isn't an easy job but she made it look effortless. Her passion about her job was obvious. She was friendly, personable and eloquent. There were no stupid questions. Her knowledge and passion about the history of all we saw, geographically, and marine life was almost frightening at how extensive it was. I love it when a tour guide winds up feeling like a friend... not something I've experienced since moving to FL. � She did. Rare & Priceless.

I have early, onset Parkinson's and was given great, non dramatic assistance. Never felt self conscious.

So, there ya go. My review is a novella because I'm a writer and have tried to cover as much as possible. I hope this gets you to the right place if you're looking for a great experience on a boat tour. I only booked to treat a visiting friend. I'm so glad I did.

John was hilarious and extremely good at what he does. We couldn't drop our lines in without catching fish. Both were super reasonably priced and very personable. Would recommend to anyone and their company is what will bring me back to Daytona/ Port Orange.

Me and my family have been coming to Daytona beach for vacation since I was born. I use to go out on the critter fleet for fishing. But 4 years ago I found out more info about Ponce Inlet Watersports and they had a backwater fishing trip. Me and my family have been going there ever since. This year we upped and booked a private charter in July for deep sea fishing. The captains have been great and very knowledgeable. Keep up the great work y'all and can't wait for many more trips to come.

This is the second time we have done the Dolphin & Manatee Tour. Once in 2015 and again this year 1016. Captain Doc and First Mate Eric were fun, knowledgeable, and First Mate Eric even got off the boat at the island to help us hunt Hermit and Fiddler Crabs. In 2015 we saw dolphins and manatees. This year the water was colder, so no manatees. But, the dolphins came out to play around the boat and we were treated to a great experience! Thank you! We will be back next vacation.

We chartered a boat for a half day with "Captain John" and had the best day! He was fun and took us to some great spots...all the kids caught fish today...8 different varieties! The kids even had time for some tubing! They all had a blast! The inlet is absolutely gorgeous, we could not have asked for a more beautiful day! Made some great family memories today and we can't wait to do it again! We would definitely recommend Ponce Inlet Water Sports...they are professional, friendly, fun and made it so easy for us...they took care of EVERYTHING! So worth the $! We will request "Captain John" again and you should too! Thanks for an incredible day John & Jiffy, we all loved it!!!!

We randomly called Ponce Inlet Watersports because we thought the prices looked great. We did a Private Charter Boat. John was our boat driver/ awesome fisherman guide. He kept our hooks baited at all times which allowed my husband to enjoy fishing. He was great with the kids and would highly recommend this place and John as a guide. Thanks John for a fun experience and Klayton's favorite part of our whole vacation! And we even saw dolphins twice!
