    Romantic, beautiful, historical, peaceful!

    My wife and I went out with my brother and his fiance. We all had a wonderful time! We were worried about the scorching heat (104° heat index) but as soon as we got out on the water, we were cool and comfortable. The captain was awesome and his parrot is beautiful! We saw at least 10 different dolphins and some of them followed the boat and surfed our wake! We also got to enjoy a guided history of the area. Our captain was knowledgeable and informative. There were around 20 people on board but it was not crowded. There was plenty of room to walk around. We had so much fun, we plan to take some more friends out soon!

    Dolphin cruise

    Very nice, calm, entertaining, and educational cruise.

    The captain was very polite and people friendly. He was very experienced with the operation of the Sunny Lady. Lucy was very entertaining and people friendly, she stole the show right away. She is a 17 year old very pretty parrot. The dolphins were out and about and got to see them surf in the wake made from the Sunny Lady which was pretty cool to see. The captain was quite skilled in maneuvering the Sunny Lady in such a way that all were able to see the dolphins doing many things along the way and made it easy to get great pictures. We had an amazing sunset also which was very nice rounding out the cruise to a perfect ending. We were more than satisfied with our experience aboard the Sunny Lady and recommend taking this cruise when at Gulf Shores Alabama.

    Sunny Lady

    We went out on the Sunny Lady Dolphin Cruise and had a blast! Captain Jeremy was friendly, funny, and made us feel at home. We saw lots of dolphins with lots of photo and video opportunities. The scenery was relaxing and beautiful. Would definitely recommend this excursion!
