You will be super disappointed it you book with another tour company. This group rocks! A little history tour, we had a ton of dolphin sightings and the crew was good at helping you figure out where the Dolphins were in the water. Clear water made it super easy to spot and photograph. We brought coolers on board with drinks,... More

My brother and I went out and his wife and son went as well. The mate was 30 or 40 minutes late and hung over and didn't have anything prepared for the trip. The captain if you can call him that was terrible and just seemed like he wasn't at all worried if we were satisfied. I wouldn't book another... More

This is a wonderful boat, Hannah Marie, with a super crew. The cap'n made sure we saw dolphins and gave us a bit of history on the area. The skyline is beautiful, and I've never seen so many shades of blue before! I recommend Olin Marler for both kids and adults. See for yourself why it's called The Emerald Coast!

I had a great experience with their party boat fishing charter. The water was unusually rough and about 90% of the people were vomiting, but it made for chum. I unfortunately didn't have many big keepers, but the guys next to me did. The price was very fair. I would definitely go back next time i visit Destin.

Capt. Alex and his crew were able to locate a few dolphin in the harbor. We then went into Gulf and enjoyed a beautiful sunny set, then saw several more dolphin on the way back to the slip. The boat was clean and appeared to have been well maintained. Music was good, the only glitch was that the volume on... More

My family and I went on the Hanna Marie due to being cancelled from another dolphin cruise to mechanical issues. What a blessing! The Captain was OUTSTANDING and genuinely cared that we saw dolphins and man, did we see Dolphins! The captain found a pod containing 10-15. He stopped so we had plenty of viewing time, gave photo and video... More

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
