    Fun in the sun on the Gulf of Mexico

    The dolphin cruise was great. We actually saw plenty of dolphins. The boat ride was awesome. You can bring a small cooler with you with drinks if you like. The boat also have soda and chips for one dollar each. We stayed out a hour and a half and the scenery was wonderful.

    Great Crew!

    This was mine & my two daughters first trip to Destin & first dolphin/boat tour. The crew was amazing & Bud even came over and sat with my daughter who was very upset with the rocking of the boat to reassure her she was safe and everything would be ok. We saw lots of dolphins and had a very enjoyable time. I reccomened you take this tour the next time your Destin. Oh and my daughter didn't want to leave when the tour was over. A+ service!!

    Dolphin Sunset Cruise

    The cruise was great! I am concerned that my credit card was hacked the day after booking online. I have been traveling and haven't used my card for other charges.

    Great customer service. The sister hosts in board were very nice. And super helpful. I loved how they made sure all the kids got vip up front looks and views at the marine life. It was a very great experience and my wife and I would sure recommend this tour to everyone. We went on the tour literally right before we took a 12 hour drive back to San Antonio, Texas. Going on this tour meant we were going to arrive in San Antonio at 2am. This tour was really worth the wait
