    Best Destin Cruise!

    I’ve done many Destin cruises. Leave the rest behind. This boat is clean with big bathrooms and several levels for your viewing pleasure. The history lesson is amazing. The captains are fun and there’s nothing they don’t know about the area. Lots of Dolphins! This cruise offers a glass bottom boat too. Pay less get lots more! Book it! We’ll be back!

    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
