    The Dolphin and History Cruise

    This tour promised we would see dolphins and other sea creatures and they lived up to their promise! Not only did we see sea life we also learned some history of how Destin started off and developed, the crew was very nice and enthusiastic and kept us entertained the whole trip!

    Dolphin Tour and Destin History

    The captain and the crew were excellent. They made sure we enjoyed the ride and saw plenty of dolphins and sharks. The history portion was great and have us a new beach to visit. It was worth every dime
