    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.

    Awesome Trip!

    This was an excellent trip! We had a party of 11 ranging in age from 2 to 64 and everyone enjoyed it! The captain took special care to make sure everyone saw dolphins. Highly recommend!

    I loved how energetic the workers were and how they were so nice and answered any questions we had, and also they let my son honk the horn and let us take family pictures. Would recommend this to anyone.

    The crew was wonderful and we were able to see so many dolphins, and learn about Destin history while having fun! Definitely recommend to everyone, family friendly and AC area to catch a break from the sun.
