Dolphins are incredible creatures. They have social skills and are highly intelligent, agile, happy, and playful. And they even share emotional similarities with humans.
Tampa Dolphin tours are geared toward finding Florida’s favorite Dolphin – the Bottlenose Dolphin. It’s the most common and well-known species of the Dolphin family. They usually live and travel in large groups that range from 10-30 members. Sometimes, you might even find them in a group as large as 1,000.

- The average lifespan of a Bottlenose Dolphin is 40 to 60 years.
- Females give birth to a calf every 3 to 6 years, after a 12-month gestational period.
