“I love my job here at The Original Dolphin Watch” Our goal is to educate and entertain our guests –Preservation through Education; there is so much marine life here in our own back yard.  We are always excited to share our knowledge of the marine life found in the Laguna Madre area.

Relief Captain Luis

Before I started working at The Original Dolphin Watch I was unaware of the variety of marine life here in the Laguna Madre.  I really enjoy giving the Eco-Tour presentation, having the opportunity to share the knowledge I have learned with our guests is my favorite part of my job.
