Best evening

We had the best evening!!! It was our favorite outing of our trip. The guides were super friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. The sunset was perfect, the dolphins were plentiful and a big treat for the whole family. Seeing the locals catching shrimp dinner was an added surprise too. Would highly, highly recommend this adventure.

Absolutely Wonderful

We live in Grand Bay, Al and go to Orange Beach quite often but have never done any excursions. This one will definitely be hard to top now! From first arriving at the marina to departure we had an awesome time. Lisa greeted us in warm and friendly manner having to be scanned for temps thanks to the Covid-19. Once we were through that we got to board the 52’ Catamaran and were welcomed by the captain and his helper, Abby! We took a seat in the back of the boat on metal benches. There were tables and chairs on the front. We had a last minute group of four join us, so glad that they were allowed to join the fun. We had a great time with them. It was a little hot as we departed but as soon as we sat sail it was very nice and breezy. The trip through the Intercoastal was wonderful, lots of beautiful homes to see, lots of gorgeous boats passing by us with their passengers waving at us. Once we reached Wolf Bay the captain put up the sails and we were sailing.... searching for Dolphins. We saw quite a few... one pod of three that we got to view for a while. The weather was amazing, the sunset view, the awesome music were all perfect! This was definitely the highlight of our vacation and I hope we’ll make this a tradition. If you are thinking about taking a cruise I would highly recommend paying a little more and up grade to the Cetasean. It’s a beautiful boat with a fabulous crew!! Don’t forget to tip!! ???? ⛵️ Todd and Christy Wallace Grand Bay AL Roll Tide Roll
