We had a great time. The staff and crew were great. The water was choppy so the dolphin sightings were next to none but that's just the chance you take. We strive to take a history tour when available on vacation and this fit the bill. Everyone had a great time and it was a great introduction to the Gulf... More

The crew was friendly, personable, and informative. The cruise was relaxing and we got to see plenty of dolphins coming to the surface. It's a definite plus that you can carry on your own beverages (no glass). I would not recommend this for someone who easily gets seasick though, because the boat does rock over the waves in the gulf.

We did the 5:30 pm dolphin cruise in hopes of seeing a nice sunset as well as dolphins. This cruise was 1.5 hours verses other places that offer a 2 hour one. 1.5 hours is plenty. The staff was extremely friendly & accommodating. I would definitely recommend Olin Marler, prices affordable, and staff great. We did see dolphins & a... More

We took the Gulf of Mexico Dolphin Cruise. We really enjoyed the cruise and saw many dolphins. The crew was nice and they also sold snacks on-board. Seemed to push tipping the crew a lot more than I'm used to. The boat also offered a glass bottom to see underwater but that is overrated. The glass bottom area was small,... More

Went fishing on the Gulf Breeze fishing boat for a six hour trip, April 10. The fishing was excellent and the crew was great! The boat was smaller than the real big drift boats so it was nice to not be so crowded. The fishing was excellent and crew worked really hard to make sure everyone had a great time.... More

Overall, this trip was great. The crew was super helpful. The boat was very unsteady which made it hard to fish. A couple of people in our group got seasick. It was very crowded on the boat. None of this could have been helped other than the crowdedness.

I had a great time with my 13 yr old daughter. The crew was nice and they made sure we found dolphins. We were lucky enough to see a pool of dolphins with a baby. So cute! It was cool (low 60s) and windy so we were thankful that the boat has an inner deck that we could escape to... More

On 1Apr17 I went on the Olin Marler charter boat Trade Winds out of Destin Harbor. There were 21 fishermen + 3 crew (Capt. & 2 mates) on the boat for our trip. At the scheduled departure time (7:30 am) I saw the young lady that took my payment (I think her name was Kristy) standing on the dock pleading... More
