      Loved our time on this dolphin cruise and snorkel trip!
      We had such a great time with Josh and Caroline! We chose the 8am time slot which ended up being perfect. The team was organized and left on time to optimize our time in the water. The two snorkel locations were perfect for all ages. We had our 7 and 5 year old daughters with us and they both were able to participate and had a great time. We were able to see multiple dolphins that came right up to the boat. Got to collect hermit crabs on crab island. I have zero negative things to say, we loved it. Book this cruise for your family, you’ll have a great time :)

      Great time with my teen girls!
      Very beginning friendly! My teen girls really enjoyed themselves as did I, but this would be good for ANY age. Josh and Kyle are very professional and make you feel like you are in great hands. They know all the spots to take you too, we saw lots of Marine life. They are funny and there was NEVER a dull moment with them .

      Great trip!
      Great experience! Staff is super friendly. We saw over 10 dolphins and were able to go snorkeling in two places. We went with a 2 year old and even he was able to enjoy it.

      Great time
      Wonderful time with the crew who used our time well. Enjoyed seeing the dolphins and even a few sharks. Crabs and shells at the end were a hit even with three teens. Highly recommend.

      Super fun!
      The captains were super nice and accommodating. They took us out to two snorkeling places which were super cool to look at. We saw a bunch of dolphins as well. Definitely would do it again!

      10/10 recommend! Great combination of snorkeling and dolphin watching!
      Great experience! If you’re looking for snorkeling to see lots of fish, jellyfish and hermit crabs as well as dolphins this is it! Great crew, boat is 80% shaded which is also nice! Went at 10:30 and it was the perfect time of day

      Had a great time!
      Kyle and Josh did a fantastic job! They made it fun and very enjoyable! Saw dolphins, found many crabs, and snorkeled with lots of fish around the jetties. The crab race was something to watch! Highly recommend! And I should add, reasonably priced.

      Great time with Josh and Kyle!!!
      We chose the 8am trip because of the high tide - it was well worth it!! The water was clear and calm and sea life abundant! We saw a few sharks and several dolphins from the boat. While snorkeling we saw tons of fish, crabs, jellyfish, etc. This is not the kind of tropical snorkeling you’ll have in a coral reef but our whole family really loved it! Josh and Kyle, our Captains, were excellent! They were fun, knowledgeable and great with the kids!

      Fun on the water
      It was so nice to get out on a boat that was fully shaded from the hot sun and cruise to fun spots to swim and snorkel. We had dolphins close to the boat and even saw a rare spotted eagle ray who jumped out of the water giving us an unexpected show! Ryan & Caroline were fantastic hosts. What a fun day out on the water in Destin Florida.

    Pretty much as advertised. For $25 per head, not a bad deal. We were on the water for about 1 hour 45 minutes. Our Captain and his assistant did a good job pointing our things of interest and made a valiant attempt to get us some dolphin views. We did in fact see dolphins twice and even saw a small pod of about 5 with a juvenile in tow.

    Our first dolphin tour and it was great! Saw many dolphins very close to boat! We were on the 400 pm tour but the people on earlier tours had the same experience. Nice guys who were the Captains of the boat. I hope they keep the great price. Makes an awesome experience accessible to many more people, not just the elite like so many experiences now. Be sure and tip.

    The boat left on time and had a reasonable (not overcrowded) number of folks on board. We saw several groups of dolphins in different locations and my grandkids loved it. For the fare this outing was well worth it!

    The crew was fun and engaging! They made sure we saw dolphins playing in the wave and the cruise was a little over an hour. The weather was windy so the swells were large and the crew stated they didn’t want anyone to get sick so they took us back into the bay around crab island. Great for all ages!

    It was our last day in Destin and we decided to do a sunset cruise and dolphin watch. Our captain, Josh was wonderful! He went over and beyond looking for dolphins. He turned the boat around so everyone on board was able to see! Brad was also very helpful, they make a great team and work well together. You can tell they both really enjoy their jobs and want to make sure everyone on board is having a good time. It was a cloudy subset, but it didn't matter at all. It was enjoyable without a perfect sunset! We highly recommend this tour company. It was easy to find and a much better price than the competitors. Thank you for making our last day so memorable!

    This great cruise was the best way to start our vacation. It was beautiful weather and we saw many many dolphins playing around the boat. I've never seen so many. Everyone on the boat was excited. I highly recommend and will be going back!

    Our guides found a pod of dolphins right away and we watched them for quite awhile - then we were taken to a shallow area where hammerheads are known to linger and sure enough there were over half a dozen that we watched for quite some time. On they way back when we were going quite slowly past the boardwalk area a turtle popped up about 20-30 feet in front of us and then dove down when he saw us coming. The guides were knowledgeable, the weather was sunny and hot, the tunes were great and we got lots of pictures and videos. It was a great trip!

    There were a lot of dolphins that came out and swam next to us, it was a pretty good time! The guides told us that it was the best dolphin cruise they’d had in a few days or so because others hadn’t gotten to see many, if any at all during the cruise. Other than that, the guides didn’t talk to us not once, they picked and chose who they interacted with … i wouldn’t take this dolphin cruise again because of that. We could’ve taken any other excursion / dolphin cruise but we chose theirs and didn’t feel appreciated as a customer who chose theirs out of many others available. I rate the experience as a 6/10 due to the dolphins.

    Thank you for coming out with us. We do see dolphins over 90 percent of the time. Some trips you see more than others. I am glad to hear you saw a lot on your trip. Could you please tell us who you had for crew this day as the crew interaction doesn’t sound like our normal crew operation and we have multiple crew that work for us. We like to be able to correct and keep dolphin cruises 5 star like we normally are. I wish that you would give us another chance to show you this experience.

    We had a great time. We saw a baby dolphin with its family and a couple of dolphin pairs. But it’s jellyfish season and we saw so many beautiful pink jellyfish! I consider it a bonus. The crew was really nice and timely. We left at the appointed time and returned on time. And there is ample parking on site.

    There are drinks on board for the purchase…but not free with booking.

    The waver that has to be signed in advance was a bit off putting. It released them of all liability even in the case on negligence on their part. It leaves too much room for irresponsibility. Other than that, I highly recommend based on my experience.

    Great staff! Knowledgeable friendly helpful courteous and polite. We had a nice boat ride saw plenty of dolphin. Only reason i did not give 5 stars is because the boat was a little uncomfortable to sit on but it was also only an hour and a half tour. Would definitely tour with them again.
