There's a good chance you'll spot wild dolphins on one of our local boat tours.

Wildlife watching in natural settings is one of our area's greatest attractions, ranging from hatchling sea turtles and fuzzy bird chicks to super-sized manatees and enormous loggerhead sea turtles. Look for them in the wild at one of our beautiful parks or when cruising our waterways. Or visit them in local rescue and rehab centers, where you can learn more about their fascinating lives and how to help them survive.
