The kids had a great time fishing.
I had a wonderful time with my four daughters out on the water. Don was a great guide and operator, he was friendly and very good with teaching my kids. They had never fished with me before. we all had a blast. Would use this Gulf Island charters again.
We knew that the fish weren’t biting hard, but Don and his wife made this an excellent experience. We brought kids ages 6, 11, and 14 with us and the 14 year old counted the fishing trip as her favorite part of our trip.

We were very happy with our dolphin cruise!!!!
Five of us went with Capt'n Don. We saw many groups of dolphins, and even a baby!! He was playing great tunes, too, and showed us the Lady of the Lake.... weird, fascinating. After we had our fill of watching dolphins, he took us out through the breakers. I have been on many boats, but Don is the safest, smoothest, most comfortable boat handler with whom I have ever sailed. Highly recommend this tour. The extra dollars for a private boat meant more time doing what pleased us, less time waiting for others. Some of our family are quite shy, and two are uneasy on the water, but they were all very comfortable with Don and voted this tour the family favorite activity of our vacation! Go!!
It was a great trip. The guides were awesome. Would do again.

Had a great time! Captain Don and crew were fantastic! Would definitely recommend.,
The captain and co captain were super friendly and very informative on our boat ride giving us the best possible experience. we got to see dolphins. Just to beef up the experience maybe for future bookings you get to feed the dolphins to get more up close and personal with them. We got a sunset photo with the family on the boat. All in all a great experience.
Everyone had a fantastic time on this cruise. The captain and his first mate were great. The weather was beautiful and we saw many dolphins. A private tour is the only way to go.

When we first got there it was a little hard to find, because it’s a turn that is under a bridge. So we did miss it and had to turn around. But other than that it was very easy parking. We got there 30 minutes before hand to check in. Upon checking in you do have to fill out liability forms. Which is standard anywhere. The ladies were so welcoming in the store. They all greeted us, even with it being super early they all had smiles on there face! The one lady who took us down to the docks was so sweet and funny, She yelled “BOYS” and then said they’ll all start coming. So our group had a great big laugh about that! When going down to the actual boat, denver took over, we filled out a form down there as well marking that we received the safety briefing, how to drive it and all that jazz. Denver was amazing! Getting out there is a different story, Once you're in the boat and driving it, because it’s a no wake zone it does take a pretty good minute to get out of the no wake zone. But they do give you a huge area to ride among. The boats are very clean and can do up to 40mph! It was so much fun zipping along! All together this trip was amazing along with the people who work there!
This was my first time on a cat boat, so I was not sure what to expect. It ended up being awesome! This was a unique way to get around on the water and super fun! I drove the boat, and found it fairly easy to pick up and learn how to maneuver. Would highly recommend this and would definitely go again!
We were looking for something unique to do and ran across this online! In minutes we were booked and had recvd email and texted confirmations. The day of our rental, we parked for for in the Caribe Marina parking lot and checked in at the tiki hut down on the water. After a few minutes of going over safety instructions, we were off! Each cat boat fits 2 people. It sits low to the ground like a go cart or honda civic. There's a dry box for your keys and stuff on the back and each boat has a bimini top for shade. This little boats have some def pick up n go to them, we scooted across the water doing like 35 mph! We didn't get wet, but when some bigger boats came by their wake did splash our feet. Once we got tired of driving, we beached it and had a picnic lunch. Each little boat has a cooler strapped to the front so we had no problem with storage. We only rented these for a couple of hours but I wish we would have kept them longer. They were a ton of fun!

My 18 year old daughter and I took the boat ride last week and LOVED EVERY MINUTE! We learned a LOT about dolphins and were thrilled to actually see about 15-18 on our cruise including four babies! The captain was so energetic and obviously loves his job and educating the public about these amazing creatures! It was an awesome experience that I highly recommend!!!
The dolphin cruise was fun. The captain was informative and funny.
We had the best time and look forward to coming back and cruising again with Jeremy ASAP !

Combine the excitement of a Craigcat boat with the fun of a guided dolphin tour on your next trip in Orange Beach....
My wife and I declined the tour and went out by ourselves. The cat boat is a great way to enjoy the bay. The AL side requires trolling speeds which is great for checking out all the nice bayside houses. Once you cross over in FL, you can open up to full speed. That's fun as well. There was also an air show going on so we watched six jets put on a great display. Then we rounded the northern side of the island and came back, never getting wet (except for feet). At about 90 minutes we were ready to turn it in. Lots of fun and great for couples. If you brought swimsuits there were a few sandbars that you could stop at to swim. But we preferred staying dry. Ken was the owner of this operation and was very hospitable and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
