I enjoyed the dolphin cruise. We did not see any dolphins for the first hour and then they finally showed up. This is a fun cruise. Don't go on an overcasted day or when there is high surf.

The kids and I have done the 6 hour fishing party boat into the gulf. Once again, they OM did not disappoint (this was our second time with OM). The captain can find fish, and the crew is knowledgeable--what more could you want on a fishing trip?

We had carefully researched reviews for dolphin cruises as we have a 4 year old and wanted this to be a fun experience for him. We went on a sunset cruise (unfortunately it was overcast and storms were expected later but it was our last day in Destin! ) Despite the ugly weather, we all had a fun time! Our... More

All I can say is WOW. This was the 1st dolphin cruise for everyone in my party of 14. The kids loved the seagulls eating out of their hands and even better part was having my boyfriend's elderly mother being able to come with us since the cruise is handicap friendly. They couldn't promise us a dolphin sighting, but we... More

We went on the dolphin cruise on 7/8. It was great! The crew was very lively and helpful. Cruise is very kid-friendly. No smoking or cussing. This cruise does not have a stop....just goes through the harbor and shows some of the local stuff and then out to look for dolphins. We saw plenty on this cruise. The kids loved... More

We took the 9 am dolphin cruise and was very pleased!! We ordered tickets the night before online and only paid $20. Well worth it! We saw a lot of dolphins!! They came right up to the boat and swam around us! We then went further out and took a nice boat ride. It was very enjoyable and I would... More

We booked a 6 hour charter trip. We got to the dock at 5:30am. When I booked out trip they told me their would be anywhere from 8 to 15 people on our trip, we had 18 not including the crew. At 6 we boarded and then had to get gas when which took 30 mins. It was an hour... More

We saw a few, but not many and not close. A smaller boat might be better for getting in certain spots to see the dolphins closer. Boat wasn't packed. View from top deck was great. The captain was wonderful, not sure what crew did exactly. Short cruise through harbor, honked at some bars.

We had an excellent time on our dolphin cruise. Saw 20+ dolphins including a couple of babies. The captain was able to pull right up beside then and then got them to chase the boat. The captain was awesome and entertaining and the other crew members were nice as well. The boat was also very clean. I would definitely use... More

Since this was my sons' (ages 8 and 10) first deep sea fishing experience, we wavered back and forth about chartering a private boat or going on more of a "party boat" fishing experience where we knew there would be at least 14 others onboard. Ultimately we opted for the "party boat" experience because it offered a shorter duration (4... More
