    A very enjoyable cruise!

    We learned about Destin history, Crab Island, and saw some sea life. The dolphins were the best part of the cruise! We got some very good pics and video of dolphins in the wake of the boat.

    Great time!

    This was a great tour. The crew and captain were very knowledgeable, engaging, fun, and passionate. The boat offers plenty of shady seating and an air conditioned interior area (and bathrooms). We saw many dolphins and got a glimpse of a couple of sharks. It was well worth the price.
