Want to have a chance to spot the Florida local wildlife up close in their natural Habitat? Look no further than the ORIGINAL dolphin watching nature cruise and eco tour inside Johns Pass Madeira beach at Hubbard’s Marina aboard The Big Blue Boat.
Our operation is family owned and operated for nearly 90 years and four generations since we started from row boats back in the 1920’s. During our relaxing, safe and fun hour and a half dolphin cruise through the calm protected Back Bay waters you will spot dolphins, see the million dollars home, visit a bird nesting island, and a commercial fishing village as well.
Dolphin sightings are even guaranteed since we have been doing this for so long we are able to predict when and where the dolphins will be. Plus, you have a great shot at spotting Manatees, Bald eagles, Osprey, Herons, Egrets, Roseate spoonbills, Skimmers, and many more local seabirds too! On top of all the great sights the captain and crew will also be narrating during the tour to make sure you hear all about the local area and when you spot the local wildlife they will tell you more about the great sights you enjoy during the fun cruise provided at Hubbard’s Marina.
The Big blue boat we take you cruising on with us also has a men and woman’s bathroom, and a full snack bar complete with candy, snacks, crackers, cold water, soda, beer and wine. Also, the boat has a large seating area to accommodate any sized groups with large aisles to make maneuvering the vessel easy. When you do spot the local wildlife or anytime throughout the cruise once safely away from the dock you’re welcomed to stand up and enjoy the boat and its many amenities until we approach the dock for the trip’s return.
The large safe and US Coast guard inspected vessel we take you out on is controlled by a USCG Master captain and your first mates area always well trained and very experienced to help you identify the local wildlife that you might spot during the trip, plus they are very knowledgeable on the eco systems to ensure the safety and preservation of our local resources. This Dolphin watching nature cruise and eco tour with Hubbard’s Marina aboard the big blue boat is great for families with any sized or age children and anyone who enjoys spotting beautiful sights, sounds and wildlife.
Plus, if you want to spend the day inside Historic Johns Pass for great local shops, restaurants and bars you can use your ticket for $5 all day parking in the garage, or you can use the meters if you only plan to stay for the hour and a half relaxing tour. Hubbard’s Marina is the only dolphin cruise company in the area with its own parking dedicated to our cruising friends. Making your arrival easy and your walk short to board our beautiful big blue boat for some fun in the sun
Our family business has been enjoying these waters for four generations since the 1920’s and we are excited to show off our beautiful area to your family during this enjoyable cruise.
