    Great Dolphin Cruise

    After two cancelled cruise we finally enjoyed our third attempt. Had a great Capt named Bill and he let Bill drive the boat. We saw lots of dolphins close to boat. It was a beautiful sunny day and fun time.

    Dolphins + Sunset =

    The captain is quite informative; sharing his dolphin knowledge on an adult level while keeping children involved. The dolphin surfing in the wake was so fun to watch! and the sunset spectacular!

    Great experience

    He took us out a little longer than usual so we could see more dolphins. Also very knowledgeable and told us interesting facts and stories from when he worked with dolphins! Also we saw some stuff that he said he's never seen before like dolphins jumping pretty high out of the water! I will definitely be returning if I am ever in gulf shores again! Great experience!
