We took our 5 young children on this dolphin tour, and it was fun from the time we got on board until we exited the boat. The captain was wonderful and knowledgeable, and there was even a little pirate adventure for the kids to keep them entertained!!!

Everything from making the phone reservation to exiting the boat was simple and pleasant. Bubba and Andrew were both personable and full of info. Tons of views of dolphins and great scenery on Ono Island. We just finished the 6pm cruise and both the weather and scenery were perfect. A must do for families!

My whole family had fun today! Dolphins came up to the boat. It was a great learning experience! There was a little adventure for the little ones as well. The staff was nice, down to earth and had a lovely southern charm. My only regret is that I didn't take enough pictures. Definitely coming back!! 😃👍

Amazing experience! Lady on front desk was very nice and the captain and deck hand was also very nice! They do great with kids and make sure you see Dolphins and have a good time!

This was a last minute vacation, with always having a love for dolphins when we decided to head to the ocean, we wanted to do something different. We looked up dolphin cruises and with so many to choose from we decided to go with Blue Dolphin Cruises because they don't over crowd their boats. Just being out on the water... More

First off, from calling to book, to paying, to the actual cruise, every staff member we encountered was amazing! The cruise itself lasted about two hours and it delivered. We saw several dolphins. Captain Bubba was very knowledgeable about the area and the dolphins. The kicker for my family was the gentleman running the cabin area of the boat, Andrew... More

We visited the gulf shores area for vacation this past week. We loved this cruise! It was everything we expected and more! Fun for the kids with unexpected surprises. Great for the adults to have the option of the indoor area with a/c or outside. Very fun outing!

Had an amazing experience on this cruise! The captain was very informative. I felt like I got way more than what I paid for. Saw dolphins within 20 minutes after leaving the dock and he made sure our tour still lasted 2 hours by taking us around the area and telling us local trivia. Pick this cruise over the competitors!
