Description:

This Alabama Dolphin Tour is brought to you by Dolphins Down Under in...

This Alabama Dolphin Tour is brought to you by Dolphins Down Under in Orange Beach, Alabama. These new custom vessels are of the most stable of boats, and our knowledgeable Captains and crew will guide you and your family on an exciting, informative and educational quest in the smooth pristine waters of the back bays to watch dolphin frolic and play in their natural environment. Minutes away from Gulf Shores, Alabama! Each vessel is equipped with four large glass panels(2.5' x 6.5' each - 65 square ft total) so that you have a chance to view the dolphins if they play and swim beneath the keels of the boats. You will also have the chance to see Osprey Fish Eagles, the Great Blue Heron, and many other wetland creatures and birds in our bay area. The tours last about 1½ hours, and there are marine restroom facilities available, as well as a snack bar and fitted life vests for children and infants. We guarantee that we'll see dolphins on our trips, and when we get the rare chance to see them under the boat, its a real treat!

The captain was great and even let all the kids on the boat (and adults) drive the boat and take pictures. Captain Robert was very informative and found the Dolphins easily. We saw a baby dolphin with its parents up close several times!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dolphin tour. The captain and mate were friendly and informative. We followed a pod of dolphins for a good ways and also saw a spinning shark jump out of the water. The pod that we watched had a baby with it. We would do this again.

I was looking so forward to this..... Had a reluctant husband and 12 year old son with me. We rode around a lot and only saw a few Dolphins. With the idea of the glass bottom boat I imagined us going over a reef or maybe the captain knew of an area that they went to everyday that we could... More

We had an awesome time with our guides. We had lots of young kids on our boat. The guys made sure to point out dolphins to them. It was a lot of fun.

Abbi and Captain had entire boat laughing before the boat left the dock. Mood was relaxed and fun. Would definitely recommend. Kids were very excited to see Dolphins feed and play. Abbi was very knowledgeable about the habits and behavior of the dolphins
