Take a cruise on our calm Gulf Waters for a non-stop lesson on ecology, history and wildlife of the Texas Coast. Nature Tours has several USCG inspected vessels available to meet your needs. All are safe, comfortable and wheelchair accessible with clean restrooms. We can accommodate large groups aboard our unique floating Marine Biology laboratories for exciting educational field trips, appropriate for students of all ages and abilities.

Would you like to pet a crab? Or kiss a stingray? Or see the tiny babies a father catfish carries in its mouth? It is always a surprise to see what swims or crawls in our trawl net! Examine the catch safely in our kid and critter friendly touch tank while our knowledgeable crew identifies and explains the habitat and life cycle of each animal. At the end of the trip we will ask your students to help us release all the animals back to their homes in the sea.

As you watch the wild dolphins frolic in their Natural habitat, keep your eyes open for Pelicans, Whooping Cranes, Sea Turtles and other endangered species that call our waters home. Enter the microscopic world of Diatoms, Copepods and Glass Shrimp when we deploy our specifically designed Plankton Seine and view our sample through a microscope to learn more about this fascinating and essential link in the oceanic food chain.

What Our Clients Say

“Excellent Dolphin & Sunset trip”

My girlfriend and I had an excellent trip on the Mustang on the $25 dolphin and sunset cruise. Both crew members were very engaging and entertained and kept the adults and children entertained throughout. Trip included a tour round the bay following dolphins and then watching them surf the bow of a tanker coming in. Followed by more touring and then a trawl to find some amazing sea life on the way back. Well worth it and highly recommended.

“Excellent dolphin watching”

This was so much fun! We took a sunset dolphin watching tour, and saw more dolphins than I've seen anywhere else. The Captain and crew were fun, friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone obviously knew what they were doing, as they knew exactly where the best camera shots were and where to find the dolphin. I highly recommend this fabulous boat trip to anyone going to Port Aransas. I only wish we had been there long enough to take the tour with the pirate fight!

“My whole family had a blast!”

All 9 of us ages 3-75 had a blast on the dolphin tour. We saw lots of dolphins and sea creatures, it's more than just a dolphins tour! While on board you not only see dolphins but they throw a large net out and fish and have a tub in the middle of the boat where they put the creatures caught so everyone can see and touch them. Awesome experience, we had a blast and learned a lot!
