“Highlight of every trip - exceptional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

DO NOT look at this review and think all dolphin cruises are the same. You will regret it! This is the ONLY 2-boat system I have ever seen in all of Panama City, Destin, Pcola, Orange Beach, and Gulf Shores. The boats create a wake, just the right size - which the dolphins love to jump and frolick in. I have probably been on this cruise at least 8 - 10 times total and it is always as good as the first time. The staff, the treatment of guests, and this up-close and personal experience with up to 4-5 dolphins jumping at once, is simply breathtaking. I think what I enjoy almost as much as the dolphins is the squeals and fits of joy, and listening to others react when the dolphins first appear and start to jump. What a joy! Hat's off to Captain Tom and his crew. Oh - and the kicker is the incredible back-bay cruise, perfect way to end a day. Make sure you call a couple of days in advance!

“Can't wait to do this again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had a group of 13 including kids ages 6-16. Everyone had a very enjoyable experience. We saw so many dolphins. We never imagined that we'd see that many. It is nice the way they take 2 boats out to allow the dolphins to play in the wake between the 2 boats. The boat was very clean and seemed to be well maintained. Motion sickness was not an issue even for those that were worried about that. It was nice that the deck hand provided some 'fishing' experience for the kids during the down time too. We enjoyed this trip very much and will do it again on our next visit to Orange Beach.

Friendly staff, wonderful sighting of dolphins! Steady boat, and great pricing! Was out on the water for a hour and half, and was able to see about ten dolphins.

“Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

The experience from beginning to end was wonderful. High quality service. Impeccably well designed and maintained boat. Safe feeling even for inexperienced or afraid boaters. The dolphin show was better than Seaworld. To see dolphins frolicking in the wild was an enriching experience. The crew is all smiles and very patient with children. Great family fun!

“Even Better The 2nd Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

This was our second trip in as many years (and vacations!) ... this time with our entire family including two grandkids.

The cruise is a superb value ... safe, clean, well-run, and FUN! And all those dolphins! The kids were laughing and thrilled, and my camera was clicking. Got more great shots than I could have hoped for .. the proof is below.
