VERY mom and pop... VERY cool and personable. We saw four groups of dolphins, great scenery, and heard dozens of "dad jokes."

Don't let the website scare you aware about the dolphin SMART program they follow. We chose this place because of that and they didn't disappoint. We had dolphins along side our boat for the majority of the cruise. Cruise is a bad word though we stayed in neutral and floating with them to ensure they did not get hurt or... More

We had a wonderful tour! I highly recommend it. Reasonably priced and they gave us the tour that they told us about. Could not be any better satisfied. Friendly people from start to finish.

Our captain, Eric, was the best, as was his assistant Rachel. We enjoyed the boat ride and saw dolphins several times. My favorite part of this was that they are conscientious of the environment and the animals. They offer dolphin info and give you history of the area.

Great time!! Adults loved it and so did the kids. I would definitely recommend friends to check it out. Captain and deckhand are awesome with the kids and very interactive. Thanks for showing my family a great time.

Our family enjoyed the relaxing cruise among the calm backwaters. The captain and deck hand were very friendly, knowledgeable, and exhibited great concern for the dolphins. I learned a lot about dolphins and other marine life. Our children had a wonderful time and we will go back!!!

There are plenty of sunset/dolphin cruises in the area, but this one is very unique because you are aboard a 52' catamaran sailboat. Not only is the tour much quieter than power boats trips, but the dolphins seem to know and want to swim around this boat. The captain even has many of them identified and named. For less than...

We found a discount brochure at the Gulf Shores Visitor Center which gave us $3 off per person for a 2 hour catamaran cruise. We saw Dolphins in the inlet as well as a bonus little sting ray! The captain and deck hand were very nice and easy going. The captain shared a few restaurant choices with us and at... More

A more than pleasant boating experience with a very knowledgeable and entertaining staff. We saw many dolphins and enjoyed the nature aspect as well. Extremely family friendly and a wonderful outing!! I hope to go again soon.

We took the sunset dolphin cruise. Incredible! We saw several dolphins and the sunset was BEAUTIFUL. Lots of photo opportunities. I would suggest sitting in the front. It was not overcrowded, but I think we lucked out with an even better view by sitting up front. Tour guides were great. We had ages 12, 13, 19-24, and 30+. Everyone enjoyed... More
