Swimming with the dolphins was a once in a lifetime incredible experience! The Shell beach excursion was also a blast ;) I cant say enough for our boat pilot/ tour guide... he was incredible. So very friendly, patient, and good with our 8 yr old daughter, who had a million questions...... and statements to make ;) He went so far... More

I went on a dolphin experience with my husband and daughter, who's 8, my sister and brother-in-law and my parents. This was one of the coolest things we have done! The educational intro was very informative and was necessary to ensure the safety of us as well as the Dolphins. Our tour guides were very professional and were very intentional... More

Our family of six visits Miramar Beach almost every year, and it is always a simple, inexpensive trip where we cook at the beach house, swim, and do little else (one movie, one game of mini-golf). We decided to do one extra activity this year and were considering a boat ride to view dolphins or paddle-boarding. I stumbled across a... More

We have three girls ages 5, 8 and 10. Our ten year old is an avid swimmer and animal lover, and she really wanted to swim with dolphins which lead us to finding this place. It was a great way for her to see and experience them without having them caged. It was truly incredible. Our 8 and 10 year... More

We had a great time experiencing the wild dolphins. We got to see a week old baby and were within inches of pods of up to 18 at one time. Going to shell island afterward was a treat also.
