Private Dolphin Tours

Been dying to see dolphins frolicking around the Outer Banks? Get yourself to Kitty Hawk Watersports and we’ll take you where they hang out and play. Those fascinating creatures can be hard to find, but our guides know the prime locations for dolphin activity so you’ll get the close-up view you want. (Hint: the waters around Nags Head and Kitty Hawk are pretty popular.) Contact us at (252) 441-2756 today to make a reservation for one of our dolphin tours.

Dolphin Tour Outer Banks







  • Our two-hour guided dolphin tours are available from mid-May through mid-September, but we increase their frequency during peak dolphin season in July and August.
  • Hours — We offer four dolphin tours each weekday during July and August and two tours each Saturday. Our tours do not operate on Sundays except for during holiday weekends. Call (252) 441-2756 for specific times.
  • Dolphins — Because dolphins live together in large groups called pods, there’s a good chance that we’ll see multiple dolphins fishing, splashing, and socializing. They are wild animals, though, so we keep a safe distance that’s close enough for a meaningful encounter.

Picture-Perfect Dolphin Encounters

Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals on the planet, and their biology and social behaviors capture our imaginations and curiosity. But it’s those smiles that keep us coming back. And when you get close enough to snap a picture of that distinctive grin on your dolphin tour, remember: They’re as curious about you as you are about them.
