This Alabama Dolphin Tour is brought to you by Dolphins Down Under in Orange Beach, Alabama. These new custom vessels are of the most stable of boats, and our knowledgeable Captains and crew will guide you and your family on an exciting, informative and educational quest in the smooth pristine waters of the back bays to watch dolphin frolic and play in their natural environment. Minutes away from Gulf Shores, Alabama! Each vessel is equipped with four large glass panels(2.5' x 6.5' each - 65 square ft total) so that you have a chance to view the dolphins if they play and swim beneath the keels of the boats. You will also have the chance to see Osprey Fish Eagles, the Great Blue Heron, and many other wetland creatures and birds in our bay area. The tours last about 1½ hours, and there are marine restroom facilities available, as well as a snack bar and fitted life vests for children and infants. We guarantee that we'll see dolphins on our trips, and when we get the rare chance to see them under the boat, its a real treat!

Same as the Dolphin Cruise that didn't have the glass bottom at twice the price. The glass bottom was actually about a 2x3 foot square you looked down in. No one could see anything through it. We went around beside the other Dolphin boats and...More

Captain Robert gave us more than our money's worth tonight! We cruised until we saw dolphins and then we cruised more until all the little ones (18) got a chance to "drive" and everyone saw dolphins swimming and jumping! Fun night for all ages!

Depends which of their tours you take. Prices posted on website. For the snorkel tour, $35, but I DO not recommend this company. Waste of time and money. You never leave the channel and it is not a true glass bottom boat... More
