    Fun but crowded

    This is our second year taking a dolphin cruise while vacationing in Destin. The first time we used a different company, they had a different type of boat that accommodated a smaller group of people. This year we decided to try another company, we were not disappointed. Our only negative was this boat was bigger, therefore a lot more people were there. One of the crew mentioned they were not even at capacity. We never made it to the glass bottom part of the boat due to the amount of people on the boat. However, we saw dolphin and still enjoyed the ride.
