What we chose to do
I started by Googling things to do in Gulf Shores. Then, I read reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. I did not read a single negative comment!
I booked 3 weeks prior.
It was highly rated on Yelp and Trip Advisor.
We drove, it was a 15 minute car ride from where we stayed at the Hilton Lodge.
ALL staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure everyone enjoyed the cruise!
I cannot say anything negative about The Sunny Lady. To start with, we were on our way to arrive for our 6:30pm cruise, set to arrive by 6:15pm. About 6:10pm, the staff actually called to confirm we were coming. I was impressed! I certainly got the impression if we were running a few minutes late they would’ve waited, but we were not late. I would suggest planning to get there more like 25 minutes prior to departure time (I now know better).
The parrot was a nice touch, the Captain made great efforts to find dolphins, and was successful. The Captain also let the kids drive the boat! My son loved feeding the seagulls Cheetos. We had a bonus also; a nice sunset! The cruise was not overbooked, and there was plenty of room to sit or walk around.
Yes, this cruise is great for adults and kids with fun music! I’d say it's great for anyone between the ages of birth and 80! The cruise lasted approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. My 11-year-old never got bored!
