Cruise the bay in search of dolphins. Of course, this is not a water park with a dolphin show. But you will definitely see them! They are cute! You will enjoy the sea walk, the main thing do not forget sun protection.

Had a great time on the three hour cruise we took. Met some fun people, both locals and tourists. The air show practice was really cool and it didn't matter if they only used the grey/white smoke, still awesome to watch them fly. I'm sad...More

This was a great way to spend a sunny afternoon in Pensacola. The ferry ride was so enjoyable, the Captain friendly and informative. I would highly recommend everyone to support and experience Pensacola's latest attraction.
