It was fun watching dolphins play in the waves! We learned that dolphins jump in the waves for pure enjoyment... which was pure enjoyment for us too! It was the perfect day for a boat ride and we were guaranteed to see dolphins. This activity was my favorite thing we did during our vacation! I'll come back next year!

We've been on this cruise numerous times and love it every time. Two boats travel side by side and about three times on the 90 minute cruise they speed up creating a big wake behind them which attracts many dolphin to come and jump behind the boats. One time we counted 15 dolphin swimming and jumping. This is our favorite... More

We had the best time on our Sunset Cruise. We were lucky to have seen many dolphins jumping next to the boat. We also were able to see a couple of babies along with their mothers and there aunties. What a spectacular cruise on a beautiful clean boat.

Two refitted navy launch boats travel side by side and when dolphins are sighted they speed up and create a large wave between them and the dolphins jump and play in the wake. It is an exciting experience to watch them. I saw a few of the spring babies on this most recent cruise. This is a wonderful family experience... More

During the week of Spring Break, it was also my granddaughter's 7th birthday. So, we booked a private dolphin cruise with another company. Unfortunately, that company had mechanical problems with their boat, so they took care of arranging our tour with Cold Mil. Although it was not a "private tour", we very much enjoyed everything about it. They were very... More

The folks who live around the Orange Beach area told us they highly recommended this cruise. Two large boats hang side by side about 50-75 feet apart and go full speed out into the bay. This creates a large wake that the dolphins love to play in. Many cameras were on board. I don't think anyone was disappointed with their... More

Have seen dolphins both times and it has been an adventure. A member of crew there to educate passengers about dolphins and area. This is a... More

The bad experience started with the phone call. We were told that they could accommodate the wheelchair, but once we arrived, we realized there were steps to go up to the rail of the boat and then you climb back down into the boat. We left our brother behind and did the cruise without him, but there was a major... More
