    The crew was nice, but we were very disappointed that we didn't get to see any dolphins or any other marine life. I think the trip was to short to find anything. I would suggest making the trip more like 2 1/2 - 3 hrs, that will allow you to go farther out and maybe get to see dolphins or other marine life.

    Highlight of our trip

    This was the highlight of our trip. The tour guide and crew were awesome! They knew exactly where to go to see dolphins and I took some great video and pictures. Definitely would do it again when I return to Destin.
