We had a great time on this excursion. We saw plenty of dolphins and the crew was great. My only complaint is the line at the snack bar was too long as there was only one person working it.

We always take the Southern Star tour whenever we go to Destin. We always have a great time & see plenty of dolphins. The crew is very friendly & helpful. The boat is clean & safe. The captain is very interesting to listen to, as well. They just seem like really nice people & we always have a good time. We recommend it.

We had a great time on this informational boat ride. Saw sea turtle & a group of 8 dolphins & a baby. Staff was great. Glass bottom cool as well. Would do it again.

Awesome crew. We took our three and one year boys and if your not anxious around the water you will have a great time. Saw lots of dolphins. Suggest you take this earlier in your trip as you can get lots of suggestions for places to eat, great places to swim and the like. Talk with the crew and they'll happily share local favorites.

This was a fun ride! We saw about 13 dolphins at once. I felt there was a lot of idling though which made my sister & myself a little seasick. The captain had a lot of information about the areas we were around. I thought it was more of an older adult cruise & not so much for children.
