Review of Dolphin Watch and Destin History Cruise

  • Wilburt Gooch USA Mar 26 2018 11:21am

    It was a very bad experience. We did not tour the gulf, we went very slow and made a small circle in the harbor. We spent most of the time stopped so the staff and guests could feed the birds Doritos. Not worth the $102 we paid at all.

    Hi Gilbert, thank you for cruising with us and leaving a review. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy this cruise. The reason we were unable to stay out in the Gulf is due to the rough seas. This was a precaution for your safety and the others on board. Even during great weather days, we don't spend more than 30 minutes in the Gulf and mostly stay inland. We do appreciate your business and hope you'll give us another try in the near future. Sincerely, Olin Marler Team.
