We had a great afternoon of fishing. We went 3-7pm and there were only 16 of us on the boat. We caught a bunch of trigger fish, white snapper, and of course even more red snapper that had to go back - out of season. The crew was great and when I got a huge hook thru my finger, Russell,... More

Upon entering the harborwalk around 2:00 we saw a lot of companies offering two dolphin tours a day at 2:00 and 5:00. Since we were with kids and it was a cool day, we thought we were out of luck. Fortunately, the company offers three tours a day at 10:30, 3:30 and 5:30. My thought was why weren't some of... More

WORST WORST WORST BOAT CAPTAIN!!!! Every June, I take a crew of 20 guys red snapper fishing on party boats in Destin,FL. My friend convinced me to try Olin Marler and it was my worse fishing experience by far! I usually fish on party boats 3-4 times yearly, but Capt JOHN GIBSON needs to retire. He was unfriendly, rude, and... More

The captain & staff were very helpful. We were able to see lots of dolphins. The bathroom was one of the cleanest I have ever seen on a boat. I enjoyed being able to go to the bottom to watch what was going on through the glass bottom. There were some folks who were late & missed the boat. The... More

It didn't seem like there were that many dolphins as there usually are the day we went, but there were still a lot to see! The staff was great, there was an indoor part of the ship so you could go inside if it got too cold; overall, it was a great experience!

I took my family ( 12 of us age ranging from 2- 58 yrs) on the 2 hr dolphin cruise. We ALL had a wonderful time! The staff was very friendly. We saw so many dolphins! The glass on the bottom was very covered so you couldn't see out of it, but that didn't take away from the excursion in... More

We were showed some celebrity homes on the cruise, we got up close to SEVERAL dolphins!! The views was spectacular. We would definitely do this cruise again in the future!! The only bad part was the weather... More
