    Great dolphin cruise for the family!

    My family had a blast on the dolphin cruise! We saw a ton of dolphins and got a great view of a Destin. There was plenty of room on the boat. There was even an air conditioned room and a snack bar. I would definitely book this same cruise again.

    Great Value and fun

    I checked prices and this one was very competitive if not the best price. Nice boat and a great Captain. Made sure we we saw sea life and also gave us history about the area. I would highly recommend.
