Our Trip to Okaloosa Island

We stayed at Four Points Sheraton it is in a great location and the Ocean front rooms are awesome. The sand is white the water is emerald. The pier is within walking distance and we saw Dolphins every time we went out on the pier. The Gulfarium is also within walking distance. My daughter did the Dolphin splash encounter , it was worth every penny.

We bought a flash drive with 106 pictures on it of the encounter. They have a Dolphin show and a Sea Lion Show. We fed the penguins and a seagull swooped down and stole a fish out of my hand that I was giving the penguin. We loved the sea otters. Our Snorkeling Cruise was canceled due to weather so we went on the Sea Blaster Dolphin Sunset Cruise out of Destin. It was fun free Wine , Beer and Soda Pop and good 80s music. We saw lots of Dolphins. The beach is so awesome on Okaloosa Island my only thoughts are is April is a little early , the water is cold and the weather was cold and rainy at times. I want to go back but I will wait until late May , June or July next time.

We were there at the same time - our daughter's spring break. The beach is still great for walking and playing in the sand but yes the water was cold and rough too. Find a heated pool and a place with a hot tub and you'll be good to go! The compromise for less crowds in sometimes less-than-perfect weather. Fall is the best time to go honestly - after kids are back in school. The gulf is so warm by then. We pull our daughter out of school to go in late September.

I've wondered about the Dolphin Encounter so thanks for your feedback!
