What we chose to do
When I googled swim with dolphins near Pensacola this showed up.
I booked the tour 2 days in advance.
I have always wanted to swim with dolphins ever since I can remember.
We drove from Pensacola.
The staff was really great! Captain Jay was such an awesome captain! He did his best to make our trip worth it. Also the intern we had Whitney, was pretty amazing as too.
Captain Jay did his best to give us an experience we will never forget! It started out where it could've been rough and stormy. We got to go see a sunken ship and we saw some ocean life. Then we went to a place the captain called the camels back and we got to see a shell that was over 20 yrs old. Then he took us to an island where we got to see squeaky sand and we had to hurry because it looked like it was gonna storm.
Captain Jay was so good with my son who was hanging all over him interested in everything the captain was showing and explaining to us. My son can talk and talk and captain Jay was so patient.
So the sky’s finally cleared up some and he took us one last time to see if we could see any dolphins. We did! Captain Jay did a wonderful job of placing us where we needed to be and that first dive I came eye to eye with a dolphin! It was so breathtaking! An experience I will never forget. He tried to get us to see them again but they were so quick and it was very murky from the storms. I can not thank him enough for everything he did for us on this trip! Also intern Whitney was just as amazing with the kids as the captain was. I also can’t thank her enough for helping the kids get to experience this as well.
Definitely! Going to see the dolphins and other ocean life in its natural habitat and learn about them was such a neat experience for me and my kids.
