Sunset Dolphins and Cocktails

Went on the sunset cruise. We saw Dalphins and had cocktails with Moma E tending bar and a beautiful sunset. Great end to a day at the beach.

Took a ride with about 40 other individuals on one of their boats mid-day, super hot out. Captain Robert and his mate were great guides, super friendly and engaging. I recognized Robert's accent promptly - not Cajun as others suggested, but New Orleans area (confirmed by Robert). The two crew chatted with as many boat riders as were interested, and... More

What a cool experience and a great captain (I think Robert...Cajun guy). Everyone was super nice and accommodating. Guaranteed to see dolphins and they didn't disappoint I think we saw more on our way back in than at the actual site. Great for kids and adults we had them right next to the boat. The captains enthusiasm and great spirit... More

We've ridden with them many times and always had a great time. This year Cpt. Robert and crew were great! We saw more dolphins this trip than in all others combined. Loved going out into the gulf for sightseeing and it was a gorgeous sunset cruise! It's a don't miss in Orange Beach!

Snorkeling was a great experience for my brother, mom and I. I would recommend it to anyone. But I have to say the best part was talking to the insane cajun captain robert. He isn't right in the head but who is!

We took the 6pm tour and watched the sunset on the bay. Dolphins guaranteed on site and the cruise is an hour and a half. Great crew very informative with surrounding areas. Let the kids take pictures and drive the boat briefly. Had a good time over all. For bigger groups can be a bit expensive but it was worth... More

Captain Robert (aka Cajun), one of the most entertaining & accommodating captains ever. Been on several of these types of trips over the years, and nothing compares to this trip. Typically, a dolphin tour is the average "hey, I think the kids would enjoy this adventure type of trip", our Captain Robert and his first mate made this trip a... More
