About Cetacean Cruises
Dolphin / Nature Tours : Our 2 hour tour takes you to see our resident Dolphin Pod in the calm waters of the Bays of Orange Beach, Alabama. After learning about the dolphins and taking lots of upclose pictures, we then take you into our beautiful bayous for an ecotour, where you may see wildlife ranging from Ospreys, Eagles, Deer or maybe even an Alligator! Smooth Sailing Tours: Come Sail Away with Cetacean Cruises Have you ever experienced a sailing adventure aboard a two-hull sailboat? Two hulls provide stability for a smooth ride without leaning to one side. Come enjoy a two-hour sail at sunset aboard the Cetacean, a 52-foot Hawaiian catamaran. Day sailing tours are great for the entire family! With the wind in our sails, the Cetacean skims along the waters of Orange Beach, Alabama. While out sailing, you’ll see coastal wildlife and marine life all around. Take in the sights and sounds as pelicans and cormorants dive into the water; bald eagles, egrets and sea gulls.

Cetaean’s sunset dolphin cruise is, according to my wife, “The best dolphin cruise I’ve ever been on.” The combination of a cash bar with table service, sunset, and sailing can’t be beat. The Cetacean, a smaller boat than many of the other cruises with a capacity of around 20, provides a more intimate experience. Sailing back to the dock into the sunset is great.

Great customer Service from Elise. She informed us that our 1st booking had to be canceled due to weather conditions and quickly rebooked for the next day! Great Crew and a knowledgable Captain, they kept us entertained, help with taking pics of the family, made sure we had drinks and snacks. Took our granddaughter to see dolphins and was not disappointed! Think she enjoyed taking the helm as much as seeing the dolphins.

Everything was great! Enjoyed the staff and was able to see dolphins and pelicans. Missed out on gators but that was not a must.
