“Perfect experience”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Love the idea of the 2 boats sailing together! The dolphins ride the waves between the two boats & we saw at least 2 dozen! Another dolphin cruise boat was trying to get close to us to get in on some of our action, they're customers weren't getting a show like we were!!

“This is THE BEST dolphin cruise!!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We vacation on various beaches on the east coast and always go on dolphin cruises. We folks, this is absolutely the best one EVER! The two boat system is great! The dolphins do tricks as if they were professionally trained by a Seaworld trainer. They frolic and jump as if they are putting on a show! Definitely go here because you are guaranteed to see dolphins and get entertainment. The cost is only $15 per person and there is a coupon also. This is a must for any tourist visiting the lovely gulf.

“Highlight of every trip - exceptional!”
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!”
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.

“Great time!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

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.
