We enjoyed our first sunset cruise with Blue Dolphin cruises. The staff was very friendly. The captain took the boat near other shrimp boats where we could see several dolphins swimming around waiting on a free meal! At the end of the trip, there was a surprise treasure chest for the kids. Overall a good experience and very family friendly.

We very much enjoyed the Blue Dolphin Cruise.

We took Blue Dolphin Cruise out of Flora-Bama marina with Captain Buddy and it did not disappoint! He put us on dolphin that we could almost touch. Even saw a dolphin born this spring! Great job, very informative during the ride. Cant miss cruise for a family and very affordable. Thanks for a great trip!!!

Took my 7 year old on this cruise. Started our ride with a pirate bandana and a fruit punch slush to help cool off. The captain allowed us to stand at the front of the boat and take in all the sights while we were not cruising at fast speeds. We saw several pods of dolphins and they were very... More

Took my family of adult children and had a great time. We liked being closer to the water than we were a few years ago on a bigger boat. Ask the crew questions, they are very entertaining. Small kids enjoyed the surprise.

Decided last minute to book this for the next morning and was not sorry. While we did not have any small children it was fun watching the kids get excited about bringing up the "pirate" treasure chest and sharing in the loot!

We booked the sunset cruise. We planned our day's activities around that time/cruise. As we were heading to cruise we received a phone call 20 minutes before the check in time saying that it was cancelled. They told us they did not meet the minimums. They asked if we could switch to another day? Really? I don't think so. Why... More
