Florida may not be the country that leaps to the forefront of your mind when you think of land-based dolphin tours, but in the last 20 to 30 years the volume of dolphins and whales in the waters off the coast of Jacksonville has increased as the rate of fishing has decreased. As a result, you can now plan your holiday to have clearwater dolphin tour in Jacksonville, Florida with the hopes of seeing some exciting marine life off its beautiful shores.

Be sure to get the most out of your dolphin tours by either booking a place on a glass-bottomed catamaran, or by renting a private boat that will take you directly to the action.
