Come aboard Chase-N-Fins, a spacious 50 foot long Navy liberty ship that has been customized for relaxing scenic tours! On the two hour tour you will enjoy beautiful views from Pensacola Bay as we cruise the calm inland waters looking for dolphins. We stop along the way to view wild dolphins playing in their natural environment. Often, the naturally curious dolphins will swim right beside the boat! Our crew is well educated about the dolphins and will be happy to tell you about the dolphins as you watch them. In addition to dolphins, you will get a unique water view of local landmarks such as Ft. Pickens, Pensacola Lighthouse, and Naval Air Station Pensacola. Bathrooms are available on the boat. We offer water bottles for sale for $1.00 a bottle, and you are welcome to bring small coolers with drinks and snacks. (no glass please!) We also offer Blue Angels cruises and private tours!

Very nice people and great boat ride. They are very mindful of the dolphins and the dolphins seem to love their boat and playing in the wake. Charlie the deck hand is very funny and makes for an enjoyable trip. Definitely recommend using Chase N Fins. Some of the other places we called did not call back and another that... More

Upon arriving into Pensacola Beach, we called Chase-N-Fins to reserve a spot for their evening cruise. Joann answered the phone and was so very helpful! She told us what time we needed to get there and where to park. Once on the boat, Charlie and Mike took over and gave us lots of good laughs along with interesting information, and... More

We had a blast on this trip : blue angel practice and dolphin tour. We saw a bunch of dolphins and they came really close to the boat and swam alongside us for a while. Charlie is hilarious!!! It was fun and informative from the start to the end. I would recommend to anyone.

We took a dolphin cruise and we saw Dolphins, but they seldom came close to the boat. They were more apt to follow smaller boats. Most of the tour was just cruising on the bay, which was nice, but not enough Dolphins.

My family of 5 had a fantastic morning cruise with Chase N Fins. We got really lucky and within 10 minutes of leaving the pier we saw multiple dolphins. By the first 30 minutes, I'd say we were watching 15-20 play and eat. They were in a great mood and surfed behind our boat's wake for a long time. We... More

We brought a group of 50 youth from NC to Florida to do some mission work and spent part of our free day aboard Chase-N-Fins. Our team had an excellent time and Aquatic Charters was so awesome to work with! They allowed us to arrange a private charter of the boat, so that it was just our group. Charlie, our... More

This was our family's 2nd year in a row on the Chase-N-Fins dolphin cruise and we couldn't have had a better time. After about 30 minutes out on the water we were able to see a TON of dolphins, a few of them swam up to within a couple feet of the boat, it was AWESOME! Charlie was a great... More

I highly recommend this dolphin cruise outfit - the perfect of combination of dolphin facts - delivered with a twist - and cruisin' time. The first mate was very personable and accommodating. What's more, you're guaranteed a dolphin sighting or you get another shot at it!

We really enjoyed this activity because we have been to visit a beach town, but never took advantage of any boat tours. The guide was very entertaining. Most of the people on our tour were very friendly. We also had the pleasure of seeing dolphins in their natural environment. We suggest everyone to book with this company and enjoy the... More
