Great fun. We saw a lot of dolphins and learned a bit about Destin. The boat was big enough that you had room to move around, but too big. There was a spot for sitting inside and they had snacks for sale.

We took an afternoon cruise to see some very lazy dolphins. There were a number encountered, but they seemed inactive. The explanation was that they were half-sleeping. The crew and narrative were interesting so it was a good afternoon on the water in Destin. The parking is difficult to find for tourists.

My husband, kids and I absolutely love this! We booked a certain time online and saved about $40. The trip was well worth the money. We saw dolphins, turtles, manitees and a shark. You can bring a small cooler onboard which we did. The crew was fabulous and helpful and the captain did a fabulous job telling the history. My... More

The captain was great, considerate and interesting and the crew efficient and polite. They wanted to be sure their passengers were safe and happy, and saw any chance of dolphins. The price is reasonable. What we didn't like was the crowd of inconsiderate people that each took up 2 seats and left many standing. The crew needed to be more... More

The cruise is a great excursion for children and adults. Despite being in the off season, the boat was pretty full. The captain and crew did an excellent job meeting the needs of all guests that I saw. We did get to see several dolphins around the jetties and Gulf. Highly recommended.

The sunset cruise was fantastic. The captain gave us a tour of the harbor, cruised the Bay Area for dolphins, and continued into the gulf to see more dolphins. The fantastic finish was the sunset. Excellent crew!

We were trying to find a dolphin cruise operating in January and this was the only operator we could find. We bought tickets online and saved money on the ticket price. The cruise was great, we saw many groups of dolphins and the crew was excellent at helping spot them especially helping the kids. Our grandson got to Captain the... More

We booked the dolphin cruise today and truly enjoyed our time looking out for dolphins - considering the choppy waters, we still saw a lot of them today. Book it online for a little discount.
