    The best Dolphin Cruise~!!

    We LOVED our Dolphin Cruise~!! Our whole family saw lots of dolphins. Our guide was great at handling the boat and his assistant was constantly offering to take pictures and serving drinks at the same time. This was a fun cruise that we look forward to taking every time we are in Destin.

    Hannah Marie Dolphin Cruise

    The captain and the girls on the ship were awesome! However the girls including the manager that run the Hannah Marie stand are absolutely horrible and are extremely rude! I left a very detailed review on their fb page that any customer can look up!

    Great trip!

    We had a great time! The captain & crew were awesome. Nicely dressed & you can they genuinely enjoy what they do! I completely under estimated the rocking of the boat, because it was intense at times. But, it was still very enjoyable!

    4 Stars

    Nice cruise, definitely geared towards tourists. One of the crew members was extremely rude to both myself and another passenger in two separate incidents...they need to get rid of him. However, the captain was friendly and another crew member was very kind to my young daughter and went out of his way to check on us during the voyage.
