Captain Matt is a great tour guide and just a nice guy. My girls and I enjoyed seeing the critters, riding in the boat, and taking a dip at an island. We will be seeing him again!

Sunset Cruise

about 2 months ago
Captain Matt was the perfect guide and host to not just a boat ride but an adventure. He surpassed our expectations by going out of his way to find us a dolphin soirée and an unforgettable sunset in the bay. He took us on a sight seeing excursion that just Put us in “Awe”. He is very knowledgeable about the Inter-coastal waters and made our trip an experience! Will look Matt up anytime we’re ready for a good time on the water!! He also extended his recommendations to land for good ones and great food! Thanks Matt!!

Matt was absolutely wonderful and accommodated the whole family on their music requests and his DJ skills. He was super laid back and very knowledgeable about the dolphins, the area, and other marine life. One of the funnest things we’ve ever done!

Private excursion made our trip!

about 6 months ago
Captain Matt's cruise was a truly customized tour through the most beautiful turquoise waters in both Alabama and Florida. Captain Matt almost immediately found us a pod of dolphins that entertained us along with "dream" shopping the yachts and mansions, while oohing and aahing at the amazing Robinson Island. Captain Matt seems to be a great all-round guy, who made us feel at ease and answered all our questions and more. As we passed other group cruises filled with people, my tween son remarked how lucky we were to have the entire boat to ourselves. We will definitely see Captain Matt again on our next trip down!

Only Way We Will Ever See Dolphins in Orange Beach Again

about 5 months ago
Captain Matt was fantastic! Great insight on Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area, knowledgeable about dolphins, and the private boat experience is the only way we will do a dolphin cruise again. The big at is clean & comfortable. Clearly, Captain Matt takes pride in the boat’s quality and cleanliness. We will be back next summer and will see Captain Matt again.

Dolphin Cruise

Captain Matt was great! Our grandkids were most interested in dolphins and they were not disappointed! We had dozens of sightings. Some of us also enjoyed the music, the fast boat and the sightseeing. We highly recommend this private cruise.

Private Dolphin Excursion

I truly enjoyed myself! It was an excellent experience. I am a dolphin lover, so to see them up close & almost personal was breath-taking. I could actually hear them taking their breath before going back under the water!! Captain Mat was so cool!

Great experience

This was my families first dolphin sightseeing adventure, and the first time my little ones were on a boat. Within the first 5 minutes of the cruise our boat was surrounded by a pod of dolphins. Matt was personable, friendly and even humored our 14 year old son. He engaged with our 7 year old daughter and our 5 year old had a blast. If you're wanting to enjoy the dolphins, see other marine life and memorable sights along the various coves, then book your reservation with Captain Matt!
