Only problem we had was hearing any announcements over PA system and me getting knocked on my kester due to a rogue wave. Crew very attentive and kept very... More

I have had the worst experience with the management since Capt. Marler passed away. I had booked a charter which I cancelled 30 days in advance of the date. They never sent me contract info & then tried to bill me over $3k for a no show even though Greg's Gentle Winds was (who I specified) was not leaving the... More

It sure was! We had a GREAT time! Our captain was Alex and the mate was the young female (I'm sorry... More

Before coming to Destin, we researched and sought recommendations for deep sea fishing tours. In the end, we elected to pay more money for a group charter limited to 15 people. We had a relatively small number of people on our vacation, three of which we made reservations for the group charter with Olin Marler. We made the reservation 26... More

I've been on the dolphin cruise at least 3 times over the last few years. It's always been an enjoyable experience. I'm looking forward to going again. Even if you go without the kids, you'll still have a good time.

This is the best dolphin cruise to take if you have children. The crew was very friendly, informative and made the trip a fun experience. Will definitely book again with them.

Wonderful cruise! Enjoyed the history and captain's interaction with the passengers throughout the trip! Saw an amazing amount of Dolphins while on the morning cruise? Grandchildren and adults were equally entertained in this 90 minute tour. Highly recommend - you are guaranteed to see Dolphins or you may go again FREE!

My family went on this cruise tonight. The captain was very friendly and worked hard to find dolphins for us to see...which we finally did. The boat was very clean and you could walk around freely. There was piped in upbeat music which we also enjoyed. Great trip!
