    Serene & beautiful...

    The ship's captain & the crew were friendly & knowledgable. We saw lots of dolphins & even some manta rays jumping out of the water across the wakes made from the boat. We took the sunset cruise and the sunset was breathtaking.

    We thought the trip was fantastic. There were six of us. It was one of most memorable adventures we had while visiting the panhandle of Florida.

    Destin dolphin watch

    We had THE BEST time. The experienced Crew knew where to spot these beautiful mammels and understand their behavior so well that the narration throughout the 90minutes was as engaging as the dolphins jumping alongside. Thank you too for the genuine concern shown for passenger safety. The entire operation, beginning with the User friendly booking site built a trust and professionalism setting this experience above others and as a general highlight to our stay in Destin. Thank you so much for the happy memories and for your interest in our feedback....! On a scale of 1-5 with 5 as tops, this rates a 10

    Dolphin cruise

    Nice evening cruise (5:30pm), with several dolphin sightings. Crew was very friendly. One crew member would stop and talk to small groups of people and tell them about stars homes or some Destin history. It was difficult to hear what he was saying. Would have been nice to hear those interesting facts on the loud speaker. I do not feel you should have to pay extra for parking.
