On an overcast morning we traveled down south to Manteo and caught a boat ride on the Roanoke Sound. We were guaranteed to see dolphins and sure enough the advertisement was right! We were on a flat little boat that traveled out into the sound for about an hour and a half. We headed towards a lighthouse before we encountered the first group. The dolphins really get within a few yards of the boat so there are quite a few photo opportunities. I think the family had a great time out on the water and I loved getting to be on a boat tour. Any time on the water is fine by me!
