During the week of Spring Break, it was also my granddaughter's 7th birthday. So, we booked a private dolphin cruise with another company. Unfortunately, that company had mechanical problems with their boat, so they took care of arranging our tour with Cold Mil. Although it was not a "private tour", we very much enjoyed everything about it. They were very... More

The folks who live around the Orange Beach area told us they highly recommended this cruise. Two large boats hang side by side about 50-75 feet apart and go full speed out into the bay. This creates a large wake that the dolphins love to play in. Many cameras were on board. I don't think anyone was disappointed with their... More

If you want to see a lot of dolphins, this is the cruise for you!! It is very family friendly. The company is family owned and operated. We went on the sunset cruise and it was amazing!!

Took this cruise for the second time with company. First boat is clean. You cannot wear black soled shoes because they mark up deck if you do shoes off. Captain very polite and friendly. Have seen dolphins both times and it has been an adventure. A member of crew there to educate passengers about dolphins and area. This is a... More

The bad experience started with the phone call. We were told that they could accommodate the wheelchair, but once we arrived, we realized there were steps to go up to the rail of the boat and then you climb back down into the boat. We left our brother behind and did the cruise without him, but there was a major... More

Would recommend this cruis to everyone. They do not have to feed or coax the dolphin to you. They jump and play in the wake the boats make an awesome cruise.

My daughter and I LOVED this dolphin tour. The captain and staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. Even in February they found quite a few dolphins. We loved how close the dolphins came to the boat. We got plenty of great pictures and videos. I was very happy that the Cold Mill Fleet was giving dolphin tours in February- many... More

Every time guests come we go on this cruise. In two years we have taken it 6 times. 2 boats work together and create a huge wake. Its the best, Book reservations and in the cooler part of the year layer your cloths.

Excellent tour! Captain Tom and Jeannette worked hard to find us Dolphins. The first group of dolphins they found didn't want to play, but no worries , they searched until they found some that did. Both Jeannette and Tom were friendly and knowledgeable. We could definitely take this tour again when we return to the area.
