“Wonderful & beautiful Sunset cruise, Fireworks”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Thursday evening Sunset & Firework cruise was great. You cannot bit the beautiful sunset view from the boat in the open sea! And the fantastic Fireworks!
My husband & I enjoyed very much. It was very relaxing and wonderful experience.
The boat was not crowed & there was plenty of room for everybody and it was clean!
The crew, Tony & Patrick, was very knowledgeable and helpful.
We were very happy with our trip. We recommend this trip.
Thanks the crew!

“Fun, Fun, Fun!!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I found Cattywampus on TripAdvisor and so glad I did!! The crew was awesome. They played great music and invited the children to steer the boat. They also put out hoola hoops for the kids on the way out. There was plenty of room on the boat to move around. We were able to take our cooler with snacks & drinks. Fifteen minutes prior to arriving at our destination, they handed out the snorkeling gear, nets & gave instructions. Once we arrived at our destination, we were off in the water to explore. There were so many hermit crabs! One crew member found a tiny seahorse! He was out in the water to answer any questions. On our way back, the kids had a surprise! They were provided water balloons! After the water balloons were gone, two buckets of water and water guns were provided. This brought excitement to the boat! The kids LOVED it!! Awesome experience!

Absolutely LOVED this cruise!! The 2 guys were super awesome!!! They were super nice and were always cracking jokes. We seen a couple of dolphins and got a bunch of crabs from Crab Island. We seen the other dolphin cruises out in the ocean that Destin has to offer and there is no comparison. Those boats were very crowded and the people barely had room to move. We had tons of room and could walk back and forth from under the pavilion to out on the deck that has 2 net floors so that you can lay or sit on the net and look directly into the water. Overall it was an awesome trip and I will be taking it again when I come back next year. The cruise ended with a water gun and water balloon fight, the perfect way to end it. Just awesome all the way around!!

“Wonderful family time”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Our family of 5, including kids of 17, 14, and 11, had a great time. The weather was beautiful and the 3 hour trip on the Cattywampus was extremely relaxing - it's really an excellent choice for an excursion with a smooth ride, shaded deck area and the catamaran nets, and the boat is very clean with lots of seating. Tony and Patrick kept everything running smoothly (that pesky sandbar on the trip back is our little secret!), and the trip was very reasonably priced. We saw lots of hermit crabs and fish while snorkeling, and watched 3 dolphins playing - who then swam right under our netting (wish we could have seen them longer of course). The whole thing was the highlight of our trip to the Destin area. We were all very well pleased with our trip - well worth it.

“Sunset & Fireworks Cruise Great”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Group of 12 from Ohio (6 adults plus kids ages 15-21) enjoyed the Thursday evening sunset cruise and fireworks from the Cattywampus. Enjoying the water on this catamaran is the way to go. Plenty of space to move around. Places to sit if needed but most stood at the front taking in the views of bay and harbor. Bring your own food and drinks. Relaxing cruise. Saw one dolphin, beautiful sunset and Harborwalk area by boat. Then stopped for front row view of fireworks. Left dock at 7pm and returned by 10pm. Highly recommend this tour.
