What we chose to do
We found TripShock on Google when we looked up dolphin cruises in Orange Beach, AL. TripShock made it easy and fun for us all.
We booked our dolphin cruise a few hours before the boat left the dock. It was very last minute, but no problem!
I had been on many dolphin cruises before. When I was explaining them to my friends they all got very excited and thought it sounded like a very fun activity for us!
We took a twenty minute drive from Gulf Shores to Orange Beach to get to the marina with our dolphin cruise boat.
The captain and other worker on the boat were very nice, friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. He answered all of our questions and was genuinely nice to us all and helped us find the dolphins!
The beautiful sunset was one of the most amazing water sunsets I’ve ever seen! Watching the boats cruise along the water and being able to be a part of that was great.
We also saw so many dolphins, it was unreal. They jumped in the waves of our boat and were swimming very close to the boat.
Dolphins are much bigger than you may think and getting to experience their beauty up close is great. I also really like getting to experience them in their free and wild habitat.
I would definitely recommend this activity to any and all groups. It’s short enough to keep a kid's attention, but long enough to relax and enjoy.
There is seating all around the boat, and the service is great. Overall it was a great experience.
