When they say you will see dolphins, they done lie! Two boats running tandem bring them to the wake where they jump and play. Very close up. Crew is wonderful. A must do when in Orange Beach.

The crew were friendly and the boat was clean and comfortable. They did an amazing job of finding dolphins for our cruise. What was supposed to be 1 1/2 hours was actually 2 hours of fun.

You can do either. We didn’t purchase in advance because we had small children and didn’t know how they would do. If you don’t order in advance, I would recommend getting there early to ensure tickets. We were one of the... More
