We booked the Blue Angels/dolphin cruise. Left the dock on time- cruised about 45 minutes until Captain Riley “docked “ in a protected cove . The Blue Angels did their practice right over us! It was an island- so some explored a bit- after the air show- we headed back. Riley found dolphins on the way back. This is a great experience! Delivered as promised!

We did the two hour dolphin cruise🐬 I cannot say enough nice things about Captain Mike and Freddie. They were so nice, funny, knowledgeable and hospitable. We saw a lot of dolphins and had an amazing time. This is a must for anyone looking for a dolphin encounter. We’ll come back for sure.

We have come to Pensacola Beach a couple of times this summer and both times we decided to do the sailboat tour! The sailboat only holds 6 people max and so the first time there was 4 of us and no one else joined us. It was amazing! The Caption was so nice and showed Morris how to drive the sailboat. We loved it! We had dolphins around us! When we went back in Sept. no one that was with us had ever sailed before and we got a different Caption. He was nice. I do wish we had the same guy as before but luckily we got the same first mate MJ! She is so much fun and very sweet lady! She kept us informed and full of beverages! We tried to get dolphins that day but no luck and there was like no wind... so it was a slow moving sail. That was no fault of Caption or anything it was just the weather for the day. If you have never done sailing you should try it!

I did the sunset sailing cruise and this was one of the highlights of my trip to the gulf. Captain John and MJ were both GREAT. Highly recommend taking this trip if you are visiting the gulf. You can byob or they have wine and drinks on board. There are also seats throughout the boat, so whichever view suits you they allow for it.

Hello! And thanks for stopping by to leave your review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your sail with Capt John and First Mate MJ. Our 2 hour sailing excursions take place in Pensacola Bay due to the distance from the marina to the Pensacola Pass (entrance to the Gulf of Mexico). However, on longer sailing adventures, 4 hours or more, we can pop out into the Gulf, as conditions permit. Thanks for sailing with us!
