    Wonderfully experience

    Wonderfully experience had the dolphins playing around the front of the boat. Tripshock had booked us at 300 which captain said he did not have a tour but we could gladly come back at 500 and he had one we could go on. They worked hard to find the dolphins and was well worth the effort. Highly recommended.

    Blue Dolphin Tours the Best!

    I took my 79 year old father, his friend and my aunt on this tour. It was fabulous. There is an ac cooled cabin, so they could stay in there until the tour started. We saw plenty of dolphins and because the Blue Dolphin is a pontoon boat, we could go where the other deeper boats couldn't. The Captain was very informative and interactive. We will definitely do this tour again.

    Excellent dolphin tour

    Had 6 kids between 4 and 11 with 5 adults. All had a great time. The captain got us up close to dolphins feeding so had great views. The surprise at the end really had the kids excited.

    Orange Beach Dolphin Tour with Blue Dolphin

    We have used tripshock in the past for our dolphin cruise in Panama City, but this time we went to orange beach. We had a really good time on this cruise and saw several dolphins. Since we had two young kids, it was nice to have air conditioning. Yes, it's very hot in alabama right now! We don't live far so we might come back before the end of the year.
