What we chose to do
We found TripShock on Google when we searched for dolphin cruises in Destin.
We booked two days in advance.
My family loves dolphins, and we had done a similar cruise in the area on a prior vacation.
We drove about six miles to the Harbor Walk area from our condo.
The captain and crew were very friendly and knowledgeable, and they ensured we all had a great experience.
We were happy to see a lot of dolphin near the boat, at least 30 sightings, including some babies. The boat was well-maintained and clean, with plenty of outdoor and indoor seats.
We really enjoyed being up on the bow, until we hit some swells and got soaked, but all in good fun. The captain gave us a history lesson about the area and pointed out local activities, as well as fun facts about marine life in the area.
The crew were all friendly, walking around the boat making sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The 1.5 hour duration seemed perfect to us, especially for the affordable cost.
The sunset cruise was a beautiful bonus, at only a few dollars more. We will definitely book again with this cruise company next time we're in the Destin area.
We would definitely recommend this activity to others who enjoy dolphin cruises because they were an affordable option with many dolphin sightings.
