There is not enough room on one page to say all the great things about this tour. Fantastic crew, dolphins close up in the boats wake. We took the sunset tour, knowing that at 4pm we would not be out long enough to see the sunset at 730 pm. The tour lasted the full 1.5 hours advertised. The idea of running two boats parallel to increase the wake is genius and works like a charm. We saw dolphins not thirty feet from us the whole trip out and back. The deck hand had some great facts about the local dolphins and engaged the young ones with questions and fun facts. I went with my 87 year old Korean War Navy veteran father (he had his Navy hat on) and the deck hand was a Vietnam Navy veteran who was very respectful to my father. He had him sit on the padded bench seat next to the Captain under the awning. Also onboard were my elderly in laws, and wife. Father in law is a Vietnam vet, he and the deck hand got along great, but he treated all of the guests well and had some funny stories about the local landmarks. The crew is very safety conscious and kept a close eye on the children aboard, and made sure the kids had a good spot to watch the dolphins safely. The boats are open with a small canopy beneath the flying bridge so apply sun screen before boarding. No spray sun screen is allowed to be applied on the boat as it leaves the deck slick. Water is available for $1 on board but you can bring a six pack sized cooler as long as it contains no alcohol or glass. Overall a great time was had by all. I highly recommend this tour and company. Professional and personable. Super value.

Our dolphin cruise was awesome! We were scrambling to find a dolphin cruise in the late afternoon for a group of 10 and stumbled on this. While it didn’t have as many reviews as other companies I was somewhat hesitant. However I definitely changed my mind afterwards, if we ever go back to Orange Beach I would definitely book with them again. We were told that they are about the only company that takes 2 boats out to create the wakes so you can see dolphins. They were able to let those of us on the right get a view and those of us on the left get a good view. It was only an hour compared to what they had said about it being an hour and a half….however it was still an amazing experience! Thank you!!

Booked the cruise for 3 people but 1 could not come at the last minute. They refunded me for the ticket anyway. The waiting area has shade and picnic tables with a couple of corn hole games to keep the kids entertained while waiting to board. The cruise takes place on Wolf Bay so the water is usually calm with no waves or ocean swell. The cruise involves 2 boats so there is plenty of seating between the two. The boats are open so bring sun screen. You can bring a small cooler with drinks and snacks if you wish. There is also a marine toilet on board. The boats operate together to form a large wave between them. The dolphins then surf the wave and jump. The best place to view this will be near the stern or the center of the boat. Resist the urge to get up on the bow.

This is the best dolphin cruise offered in the area by far. I have been on a few and its literally night and day with the experience. They are amazing. The customer service is fantastic! You will have memories for a lifetime if you take this particular cruise. Cold Mil Fleet beats them all!
