    Veterans Day weekend

    Kudos to your staff! I was in Destin for the weekend visiting my son who is stationed there in the USAF. It was awesome! There were tons of dolphins and the Captain was sure to announce which side of the boat so we could capture the view and snap a video or picture. The sunset was simply amazing and the staff was so helpful to capture pictures. I would definitely do this again. My only suggestion is to tell people NOT to feed the seagulls as they tend to poop or spit out stuff afterwards.

    Great time!

    We had a wonderful time on the dolphin watch and Destin history cruise. We saw so many dolphins and learned some neat facts about Destin as well. The captain and his crew were friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. Even offered to take several group photos of me and my friends. And I loved that we could bring drinks along for the tour - everyone had a blast!
