    Dolphin, Sunset Cruise

    Amazing! I would highly recommend this tour! The staff was fun, funny and engaging. The dolphins delivered and you can’t beat a Destin sunset. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

    Amazing Sunset Dolphin Tour

    Awesome tour!!! Roy, Amanda, and Robbie were great! They were very friendly and knowledgeable. The water gets rough, so take that in mind if you get sea sick easily. Chips, water and sodas are available to purchase for $1, but you can take your own snacks and drinks aboard (no glass bottles allowed). We saw lots of dolphins even babies and the sunset was spectacular. Highly recommend this tour!
