    Lovely way to end a day

    The crew was supper nice and accommodating. While we would have loved to see more dolphins, not the crew’s fault at all, the ride was nice and we loved seeing the sunset from the water.

    The Dolphin Watch cruise was phenomenal!

    The dolphin watch and Destin History Cruise is highly recommended for all ages the captain and his two crew members were very accommodating. This was a birthday gift for my husband and he enjoyed every minute of seeing the dolphins in their own habitat and the beautiful gulf of Mexico. I would suggest taking the sunset cruise at 5pm to see the beautiful sunset. The cruise was an enjoyable time I would go again to take other family members I recommend it highly oh and might I add it was very affordable.
