The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
We Hit the Jackpot Aboard Sunny Lady
How did you discover this activity?
We searched on Google for dolphin cruises by Gulf Shores, and found TripShock. The information on their site was very helpful, and all of the reviews and ratings were great! We kept searching, but came back to TripShock to book, and I’m so happy we did; our experience was magical!
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
We actually ended up booking a few hours prior to departure! We wanted to make sure it wouldn’t be cancelled because they didn’t have enough people booking (we had this happen before, and it took weeks to get a refund).
Because of this, we decided to book a few hours before, and the captain even called to make sure we were coming. It was a very easy and smooth process!
Why did you choose this activity?
We are from Indiana, so marine life is something we don’t get to experience often. We have twin girls who absolutely love dolphins, so this cruise was everything to them, and me! After searching and reading through reviews, we decided the Sunny Lady was the best pick for our family.
Our girls are still talking about that tour, and will be for a long time. It was so amazing to see dolphins jumping right next to our boat, they even let us feed the seagulls!
How did you get to the activity location?
We were only about 15 minutes away, pulled right into the parking lot, and could see the boat from our spot. We got out of the car and walked right on to the boat. It was easily accessible, and not difficult to find!
What was your experience with the activity’s staff?
I have nothing but good things to say about their staff! Everyone was extremely nice, and interacted with us the entire time! You could tell they knew about marine life and how to get the dolphins to interact with us. We learned a lot about dolphins from them!
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
We stayed in Gulf Shores for 7 days, and this cruise was, by far, our favorite memory of the week! The Sunny Lady was a blast. We were able to move around the ship to have a better view of the dolphins. The captain spoke to us the entire time, describing each dolphin by name, and sharing little fun facts about them.
We hit the jackpot that night, we had dolphins jumping out of the waves right next to our boat! We were able to see a mama and baby dolphin, which our girls loved, and a few males diving down to get food. The staff provided us with Cheetos to feed the seagulls with, and that was so much fun!
We took so many pictures and videos that we will continue to watch for years to come. Our girls were so happy, and loved every minute on that ship. We will be booking the Sunny Lady with TripShock in a few months when we come back to visit! You won’t regret it, our experience was magical!
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
We most definitely will be telling all of our friends, or anyone who is curious about our dolphin cruise! As easy as it was to book, find, and board the ship, it would be rude not to tell everyone! This tour is perfect for all families, or even for a fun date night with no kids.
