    Orange Beach Sunset Cruise from The Wharf

    First of all, you could not beat the beautiful weather we had during our visit to Gulf Shores during the Shrimp Festival! It was the perfect time to enjoy a sunset cruise. Dolphins were very active and seemed to be enjoying their day as much as we were.!

    Thanks for the help

    Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

    Very disappointing in that we didn't see many dolphins. Maybe we should have booked with a boat that was going into the gulf. However, the personnel were agreeable, and the boat was clean. Thank you for asking.

    Mr. Moser, thank you for your input and for joining us on our cruise. I would like to point out, however, that whether you go in the bay or in the gulf, please remember that dolphins are wildlife and we have absolutely no control over how many you may see. Perhaps next time you may see more of them. Thanks again! Staff/Crew of The Sunny Lady
