What we chose to do
I discovered this cruise three years ago when I first started coming to Fort Walton Beach for my birthday.
After reading all the other awesome reviews, my spouse and I decided to give it a try. We are so happy that we did because this cruise is well worth the money.
You are guaranteed to see dolphins, and they also take time for every one to get a good picture as well.
I booked it just hours before the depature time. We got down to the harbor about an hour early so that we had time to check in and get in line.
I chose this activity based on the reviews and the fact that it said we were guaranteed to see dolphins. I had never been on a speed boat tour before. This one had been up and running for a while and looked very fun.
Also based on the pictures, the boat was clean and the views were amazing. I also enjoyed the fact that the crew gave riders a chance to steer the boat.
The price for the length of the ride and type of boat ride were appealing as well.
Getting to the harbor was less than a 10 minute trip from our hotel on Santa Rosa Blvd. Once at the harbor, it is easy to locate where the cruise ship is and where to line up at. The check-in buildings are color coded.
The staff on the Sea Blaster is amazing! They are so nice and very interactive and fun. They also let the riders steer the boat at a point in the ride, which is great!
This dolphin cruise was beyond awesome! From the staff, to the atmosphere of the other riders on the cruise, they made it very memorable.
I loved how they stopped when the dolphins were close and shifted the boat to the left and/or right so that everyone on the cruise had a chance to see the dolphins and take pictures.
They would also sped up the boat to catch them if the dolphins were spotted further out. I loved how at one point on the cruise, it feels like you are so far away from the shoreline that all you can see is water and a beautiful sunset.
I enjoyed the wine they served on the cruise as well. It was nice and chilled, as well as the sodas and water. The boat was also very clean and the bathroom was as well.
Overall, this dolphin cruise is one that I will always take when I come to Fort Walton. It's fun for all ages.
Yes, this cruise would definitely work for other groups as well as just a couple. Since the crew is very interactive, they will make it worth your while. They are very accommodating.
