    We had a great time and the crew made sure the children on the trip were the priority! When wildlife was spotted they quickly gathered the children and made sure they saw the animals first! Would definitely recommend to friends and family traveling to Destin.

    Fun Times

    Fun times with the boat crew. Very nice and helpful team all the way from the parking to boat. Only negative is the was a cluster getting on with people crowding to board and aggressively trying to secure preferred seating. Once on board, I realized why. The boat doesn't really have good viewing from everywhere. So to see the dolphins that were around, you had to constantly move around the boat to see them. And guess who was aggressively crowding everyone to see? Made for an irritating experience

    Hannah Marie dolphin Cruze was great!

    Great time, saw 15 dolphins with my girlfriend one sea turtle and one shark. Crew was very funny and hospitable. Small history lesson and lots of fun with the sea gulls. They also made sure everyone was safe and knew they were safe on their trip. Great time and great price for the experience.
