We loved this cruise, we did the Sunset Dolphin one. We had a coupon that we received from Tripshock and so the cost was $20 per adult. It was well worth the money the guides were very nice & informative and liked to have a good time. We seen dolphins in several different areas. They have a glass bottom for... More

Six of us decided to sign up for this cruise to view dolphins. The captain, Roy, was so engaging and professional. He really cared if he was able to show us pods of these special creatures. He said he's been doing this several years and formerly took people out to parasail. Did I mention he is really cute, too? Well,... More

We often have visitors, and this is one of the most fun attractions for all - grownups, children, tourists and locals. Every trip is a little different, but you always see something, usually dolphins frolicking in the setting sun, and it is always a great adventure.

We went out on the "Gentle Winds" party boat for a 6hr trip this morning. Brock and Dan were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They made sure we all had good fishing info, plenty of bait, and help whenever we needed it. The fish was kept on separate stringers per group, so you knew you were able to keep the ones... More

Great dolphin cruise with the family. It was a very relaxing ride the crew turned out to be very entertaining although we didn't get to see very many dolphins that day (which is totally out of the control of the boat crew) he did at least try different spots for sightings I would recommend this company for dolphin tours.

Let me start this review by saying that I've fished with this company many times and have never had any problems. My party of 4 adults booked a trip three weeks in advance when we were going to be in Destin on vacation. At 7 pm the night before the 6 am charter, I received a phone call stating that... More

The men in our group did 2 fishing charters, one was a party boat and the other was a 4 hr charter. They had great luck with the fish and were able to max out both days. The guys helping on the boat were friendly and helpful.

Booked a trip for small group and found out they booked ua for a party boat. Rescheduled for the next day and the captain did not know how to find the fish. After four hours, we had very few fish. Another boat that came in beside us had a bunch of big fish. How disappointing. I wish you could book... More

After planning our vacation for several months and driving 7 hours one way to reach Destin, we booked a 6 hour fishing trip in middle of the week. After arriving 45 minutes early and then sitting on the boat for about an hour, we were given the news that the Captain was not going to be able to make the... More
