    Fun for whole family

    We took our grandkids on this 2 hour comfortable glass bottom boat ride through Destin harbor and out into the Gulf. It was an intensely hot day but very comfortable temperature sitting on the boat. We couldn’t see anything through the glass bottom-the water was too murky, but up top we saw several dolphins and stingrays. Fun way to spend a couple of hours at any age!

    We saw dolphins!

    Captain was knowledgable, and accomadating. He even turned the boat completely around to find dolphins. We saw dolphins as we intended, very fun, and the crew were exciting!

    RSVP Boat in Destin

    Reservation process was easy. They overbooked us though. That part was not too cool. But, they quickly notified us and is supposed to give us a refund. I hope that is or will be the case. Thanks.
