Welcome Aboard “Manute’a”
In 2007 Captain Dave added a second sailing catamaran to our fleet of dolphin and whale watching boats, the high-tech, high-speed, Manute’a. She is U. S. Coast Guard inspected and certified to carry up to 49 passengers.
Manute’a (pronounced mah noo tay ah) offers the most unique dolphin and whale watching in the world. Her features include our exclusive two Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods, research hydrophone to hear dolphin and whale vocalizations, three Eye-Spy Dolphin Nets, micro dolphin and whale museum, and two bathrooms.
BE one of the dolphin pod and feel what’s it’s like to swim with dolphins without getting wet in our Eye-to Eye-Underwater Viewing Pods! Each Pod has glass windows on both sides that allow you to actually be “eye-to-eye” with the animals. We can usually accommodate up to two adults or three children in each Pod at a time.
Hear the dolphins too with our research quality underwater hydrophone. Experienced marine naturalists share our collection of dolphin and whale artifacts and explain how the animals live. Mrs. Captain Dave’s yummy Triple Fudge Brownies are served complimentary on every whale watching safari. With a maximum of 49 passengers our high-speed, high-tech catamaran sailboat Manute’a is never crowded!
I found this group on Facebook! Was not sure my husband who is paralyzed on his left side as the result of a Stroke could have this experience. From the first phone call and forward the group at Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari put all of our concerns to rest! The team at Captain Dave’s were so helpful and made our trip one of the best experiences of our lives! The boat was wonderful and the captain and crew were knowledgeable and fun! We saw Whales and Dolphins! I have already recommended this trip to my friends!!
