    Dolphin & Destin History

    It was excellent! Best trip ever! Fun for the whole family, kids ages 2-8! Took trip on our last vaca day: Friday and We saw so many dolphins and more! Sharks and a Mantaray! So exciting!! We had a great dolphin show right in front of us. The crew was awesome and interactive. The crew went above and beyond! Our son 3, made friends with crew, they are great with kids! Made sure their little eyes could see it too. Again, Great for any age, and the best part besides the dolphin experience was the ability to move around the boat to see what you want to see!

    Best dolphin cruise in Destin

    Captain was great and took lots of time with the kids. We have been on several different boats and this one by far was the best.
