First, when it's hot, having an air conditioned cabin is a huge plus. We went at 4:00 on a very hot afternoon and because the boats travel a lower speeds, there is little breeze outside. But inside was very comfortable. Captain Bubba was pleasant and very knowledgeable about the dolphins and a nice and very accommodating guy. First Mate, Andrew... More

We were looking for a good and safe first time experience for our 5 year old. This company fit the bill perfectly. These folks are super friendly and truly enjoy their work. We had a special treat with 2 dolphins right in the harbor. They escorted us out for a long way. Everyone loved seeing these 2 up close. There... More

We had attempted to book a different dolphin cruise, but it was booked up. They recommended Blue Dolphin. When we first got there, I was a little skeptical. The boat looked a little older than others harbored in the vicinity, was not "open" like the others. I was pleasantly surprised. This enclosed pontoon had a/c, which given the outdoor temps,...

These guys did a great job. They accommodated 14 of us on short notice due to a baseball tournament schedule. Fun people to work with, and very affordable. Pleasant surprise that the kids got pirate bandanas and even got to raise a sunken pirate chest from the bottom of the bay!

Our family had a wonderful experience with Blue Dolphin Cruises! Got to see many dolphins and the crew was exceptionally nice and friendly. Andrew went out of his way to learn the kids' names and talk with us. Highly recommended!

Great 2 hour tour. We seen a couple dozen Dolphins at different location. Not a bad two hours for the price. Well worth it. The crew is very friendly and will answer all your questions.

I looked at several dolphin tours before deciding on this one and boy did I make a great choice. It was a comfortable and very enjoyable experience. The captain and his crew did an amazing job making everyone feel at home and made it an extra special adventure for the kids. Big thumbs up for these guys!!

This is an excellent family adventure to go on. The staff is wonderful and the boat ride is great. We were able to see many dolphins and the staff made sure everyone had a chance to see. They even find a treasure chest on the ride for the kids!

Bubba and Andrew were friendly and very informative. They made sure we saw plenty of dolphins! I also was impressed with how kind they were to an elderly gentleman who wanted to enjoy the dolphins, they took their time to help him onto the boat and made sure he was comfortable!

Each time I come to the Gulf Coast I be sure to book a cruise on the Blue Dolphin Cruises. I feel very comfortable with the staff each time and we always get to see dolphins. Sometimes more than other times ... but there are always dolphins to see. This time the Captain actually had a young man taking drink... More
