“In my experience of over 20 years of knowing Roberta, and swimming together with dolphins, she has the most remarkable natural empathy with dolphins that I’ve yet come across. Her combination of high intelligence, a strong emotional body, and a nurturing nature makes her an ideal person to facilitate magical encounters with dolphins. I always recommend the dolphin trips she guides to all my curious and adventurous readers”.
– Timothy Wyllie, author, Ask Your Angels; Adventures among Spiritual Intelligences: Dolphins Extraterrestrials Angels; and Angels, Aliens, Dolphins & Shamans

– Sincerely, Sue Hoagland (Family Group of 10 people)
My boat is a 28′ Tollycraft cabin cruiser, beloved boat of the Pacific Northwest.
The Blu J, named after my young granddaughters Jade and Juliette, offers a ride in the shade up high on the bridge with the captain. From there, dolphins are easy to spot and photograph. The bow is wide and large enough for all guests to have a front row seat above bowriding dolphins.
From the spacious open sten, guests enter the water from a 28″ swim step deck.
A bathroom, bed, kitchen and plenty of dry storage ensure a comfortable experience.
What to bring:
- Swim attire
- Light jacket
- Snorkel gear (if you have it)
- Smiles provided.
The sea may spray the boat, so you and your gear may get wet. If you bring a camera or video, be sure it is kept inside something waterproof when not in use.
Not Included in Your Trip:
- Transportation to and from the boat
- Food other than fruit, snacks, and drinks
- Tips for your private guide, the boat captain and crew
