    Fun ride

    Had a great time with our kids. Water was a little rough but we loved that part. Only got to see one dolphin, briefly but that's okay. Enjoyed the scenery and history of Destin. Crew was knowledgeable and friendly and the photographer did a great job. Awesome time!

    Dolphin/History Cruise

    The crew was awesome, knowledgeable and very friendly. I didn’t like going to the very top though to go over procedures. It made some people sea sick and if we could have sat on the 2nd level to adjust and hear procedures then I think it would have helped the 5 people that got sick.
