→ We specialize in memorable occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and honeymoons.

Dolphin Cruise: Most encounters take place in the back bays around Perdido Key, FL, and the Orange Beach, AL, area. On occasion, we find dolphins just off the coast in the Gulf. Help us locate dolphins by bringing binoculars— keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready! You may see Osprey, Eagles, Blue Herons, Pelicans and many other birds and wetland animals indigenous to the bay area. The Gulf Coast waters play host to many sea turtles, sharks and rays. The unique, and private experience allows you and your party to view dolphins up close instead of from a distance on a large boat with 50 strangers.

Sunset Cruise: View the most beautiful sunsets the southeast has to offer along Alabama’s Gulf! We’d love to customize the perfect sunset cruise for you. Smooth water and red, pink, orange and blue skies will provide a flawless backdrop to a romantic evening on the water.
