July 26 2018

How did you discover this activity?

We found TripShock on Google while searching for birthday surprises for our daughter in the Gulf Shores area.

When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?

We booked two weeks out.

Why did you choose this activity?

Our family had never been on a dolphin cruise and we thought it would make an excellent birthday surprise for our daughter. We were not disappointed!

How did you get to the activity location?

This activity was just a few minutes drive from our condo.

What was your experience with the activity's staff?

The captain, crew and Lucy the bird were all amazing and knowledgeable.

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

We were so excited to actually see the dolphins swim. It was amazing and exciting to witness. Our captain was very knowledgeable and made sure that everyone aboard was able to enjoy these beautiful animals in the bay. Once the captain became aware that we were aboard to celebrate our daughters birthday, he allowed her to drive the boat. He also asked that all of the passengers sing Happy Birthday to her. It was so neat for her and we loved seeing her happy expressions. The crew made the entire experience amazing for our family, but especially for our birthday girl.

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

This tour was absolutely wonderful. We would highly recommend the sunset cruise. It seemed to be easier to see the dolphins and the pictures with the sun going down turned out beautifully.
