    Great time!

    The crew was attentive and very friendly. They showed excitement for every dolphin sighting, brought the kids up for pictures in the captains chair and walked around offering to take family pictures for all the passengers. Lucy the parrot was also a huge hit! It did go a little longer than planned and by the end our little ones were done and ready to get off the boat. Not necessarily a complaint, but 1.5 hours would have been plenty for our crew, instead of the 2 hours. I think captain Jeremy was just trying to make sure everyone was happy and saw enough dolphins! Overall, a wonderful experience from start to finish!

    The Sunny Lady Dolphin Cruise

    The Sunny Lady is a very entertaining and professional dolphin cruise. The crew is very energetic and knowledgeable about what they are doing. I would recommend them to any one that goes to the Gulf Coast to look them up and to enjoy the experience they have to offer.

    Captain Jeremy and crew members Emily and Danny where awesome. They found the dolphins as promised and made sure everyone could see and get their pictures and videos. Would defiantly do the excursion again.

    The dolphin cruise on the sunny lady was hands down the best I have been on. My 3 year old is in love with dolphins and was so excited to get to see a baby dolphin.

    Thank you for the amazing review. We are thrilled to know our new 2018 crew on the Sunny Lady is showing our guest a wonderful time.The baby dolphin has been a hit lately and we are super happy you got to experience it also. We named the baby Jelly-Bean because she was born on Easter.

    Great experience and great on-board staff

    Great experience - would have liked to see more dolphins but we were able to see some. The group on board was a very enthusiastic one, so this made for a pleasant trip. Jeremy, our captain, was very informed about the locations and also about the dolphin life - with specific comments regarding the dolphins we saw. His parrot, Lucy, was an added attraction. Well worth the price we paid. Thanks to Jeremy and his staff for making this a pleasant "memory" from our Gulf Shores trip.
