Reviews of Destin Dolphin, Sailing & Snorkeling Charter

Sailing with Captain Bill
Awesome experience! Captain Bill went out of his way to make sure we got to see a lot of dolphins, sting rays and we even saw a few small sharks! Wish we had of had a better snorkeling spot but, overall the boat was amazing and the trip was great! Will definitely book next time we’re there.

Catamaran Dolphin watch
Our family had Captain Bill take us on his roomy catamaran/sailboat to look for dolphins. With his help, we saw a couple of pods of dolphins and went sailing off the coast in the Gulf of Mexico. He also took lots of candid photos for us on his phone and texted them to us later. He was very kind, helpful, and has a lifetime of sailing e Perrin e with a vast knowledge of sailing and the area. We will definitely book with him again. Thanks. -AJ

Captain Bill was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
This was the best experience, my teenage boys were kept engaged and entertained. Capt. Bill was very knowledgeable and told great stories and gave history on the areas we sailed and snorkeled.

Dolphin Trip
Captain Bill was everything she more. Gave us local insights both land and sea and tracked fish dolphins for us. We had an incredible time. We WILL travel with him again when we come back

Une belle aventure !
Captain Bill a été super gentil avec notre groupe . Il nous a montré des dauphins , on a fait du snorkling. Une belle aventure dans les eaux turquoises de Emerald Coast . Je recommande fortement .

Maximum Magic was AWESOME!!
We purchased VIP seating to see Noah and Heather Wills Maximum Magic Show at the Theater at the Harbor Walk. It DID NOT DISAPPOINT. We sat three feet from the stage and his “magic” was incredible!!! We laughed and were in awe. He engaged the audience and has an huge personality that is captivating. Our favorite trick was the Grand Finale. I’m still stumped. Lol.

Best charter
This is the best charter I have done in Destin. Private, easy access, no booking hassles, good parking. Captain Bill was very nice. The sailing charter was relaxing and we saw many dolphins. We snorkelers and found shells, hermit crabs and anemone. 10/10 would do again. My group had kids as young as 7, experienced and unexperienced snorkelers.

Capt. Bill is the BEST!
My family was looking for a nice day on a private catamaran dolphins watching and snorkeling. We were lucky to find Capt. Bill and It was a perfect afternoon. Capt. Bill knew right where to see a lot of dolphins and take us snorkeling. My teenage boys and nine year old girl all said, “sailing, dolphin watching and snorkeling was their favorite part of the vacation”. We’ll be back to go fishing next time!

Great Sail... Great Captain
We took our grandchildren to the sailing for the fist time. They had an amazing time and we had a peaceful relaxing time. He went out of his way to find dolphins for the grandkids. Highly recommended

just now NEW What a fun experience! We had never been on a sailboat and it is so relaxing and calm! Captain Bill is such a good guy! We saw dolphins, tons of sharks, huge crab and so many fish. I would choose this charter any day over the over crowded tourist boats.

Friendly and skilled captain
Great captain on the perfect boat for the area. I have two boys (9 and 7) with ADHD, and they can be a handful at times. Captain Bill was very patient and kind to them, which went a long way towards everyone having a great time. Captain Bill's experience was evident as he brought us directly to a pod of dolphins, while safely navigating the sea of other boats in the area. He politely gave our family space to do our own thing, but was totally approachable and conversational if needed. His boat is plenty large enough for a group to spread out comfortably either lounging on the front trampoline, or on one the bench seats in the rear. This boat is capable of floating in very shallow water (my 9 year old could easily touch), which came in handy when we stopped for a swim at a semi-private beach. Although it may not look as substantial as other boats you can hire, it has everything you need. It is plenty fast by sail power and very stable and safe.

Just the two of us
We were scheduled for 9am. My daughter and I were the only people who got up in time to go on this charter. Captain Bill was wonderful. He took and shared photos of our excursion with us. It was such a beautiful trip. We had never been sailing, and Bill really tailored the trip to suit our desires. I will book with him every time. We cannot wait to do it again.
