“Destin 2012!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

This was my first time to Destin, and it was just for the weekend. We did the Sunset Dolphin Cruise on a Friday and the Snorkeling on Saturday. Both times we got the Snuba Runner... but it was GREAT.. because Chalice is an AMAZING captain.... and Grant is super nice. The dolphin tour lasted about 2 hours, and we were lucky enough to see dolphins for the entire two hours.... and the snorkeling was fun. Saw plenty of fish and we even saw dolphins on our snorkeling trip. It was so much fun and we had an unforgettable time... If you get a chance to go, please make sure you take either of these trips. They are very affordable at $22 and $30. I will definitely be going back to Destin and doing both of these trips again!!!

“Everyone should snuba in Destin, Florida with Destin Snuba!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

My daughters and I visited the Destin area recently and went on a snuba adventure. Our experience was fantastic and one that I would recommend to everyone who has the opportunity. Destin Snuba is very professional, friendly, safety conscious, and fun! We all agreed it was an absolutely wonderful memory and one that we will never forget. The experience was positive from the first phone call to schedule our snuba trip, to the folks who greeted us when we arrived, to the crew and our captain who turned out to be a trained scuba diver who was our guide under water. Also, there was a professional videographer Gregg who videotaped our our entire trip which allows us to watch and relive the experience all over again. My daughters and I swam under water in our own small group which made the experience so much more personal. My daughters had gone snorkeling before but I never had and none of us had been on a snuba adventure before but we felt so safe because of the thorough instructions we had been given and our guide by our side. The water and sea life was so beautiful. The underwater experience was unbelievable! The atmophere all day was like a group of friends on an outing. We will definatley go back to Destin Snuba the next time we are in the area and, as a matter of fact, Destin Snuba is one of the reasons we will go back!

“SUNSET DOLPHIN TOUR WAS AWESOME!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

This was the last activity on our trip and what a great way to finish. We boarded the snuba runner boat that was used for the dolphin cruise. It is a flat boat with seats but plenty of room walk anywhere on the boat at anytime. This is important when you dont know where dolphins will surface. We saw a TON of dolphins in there natural habitat. Graham and Chalice were so welcoming and had a great since of humor. Graham served FREE alcoholic (Beer and wine) and non-alcoholic (water and soda) beverage while pointing out the sites that make the harbor famous. We then went further out and watch the dolphins jump in the sunset. Book early because we barely got on the boat....and they oversell the boat so no one is crowded. We will do this again! The best $22 we have spent.

“Good sunset tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Very good trip, we enjoyed it because the boat was not full and the layout of the boat allowed you to walk around and just be in a seat. Had a head on board which is always a good thing, if you need it. Free beer and wine was also served. Had a great tour of the bay and then out to look for dolphins and saw a lot of them and cruised over to watch the sunset. Definitely an enjoyable few hours and would do it again.

“We love Destin Snorkel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

We have done activities through Destin Snorkel 2 years in a row and plan to go back for a 3rd year. Two of our kids, ages 9 and 10, loved seeing dolphins during Fly The Beach(discovery flight). I normally do not enjoy flying but I have gone 2 years in a row and it is very fun! Our family of 5, ages 3 to 32, all loved the snorkeling trip. You can snorkel, swim, kyak or just play on the beach. The people who worked on the boat were all so nice and helpful. Snuba was my husband and daughters favorite!! They were able to go to the intake and went down 22 feet. My daughter is only 10 and she had so much fun. The captain of the boat let her help drive and her snuba instructor was so helpful! We were able to buy a dvd of their snuba trip so we could see all the things they did. Thank You to Destin Snorkel for making our vacation FUN!
