The cruise is a great excursion for children and adults. Despite being in the off season, the boat was pretty full. The captain and crew did an excellent job meeting the needs of all guests that I saw. We did get to see several dolphins around the jetties and Gulf. Highly recommended.

The sunset cruise was fantastic. The captain gave us a tour of the harbor, cruised the Bay Area for dolphins, and continued into the gulf to see more dolphins. The fantastic finish was the sunset. Excellent crew!

We were trying to find a dolphin cruise operating in January and this was the only operator we could find. We bought tickets online and saved money on the ticket price. The cruise was great, we saw many groups of dolphins and the crew was excellent at helping spot them especially helping the kids. Our grandson got to Captain the... More

We booked the dolphin cruise today and truly enjoyed our time looking out for dolphins - considering the choppy waters, we still saw a lot of them today. Book it online for a little discount.

We had a great time (and luckily great weather) during our 6 hour fishing trip on 12/18/16. It was a full boat (35 people), but we had enough room to fish and caught at least 25-30 fish (able to keep 12-13 that were in season). The crew was awesome, particularly Pete, for helping take off our fish and answer all... More

We did have a good time on the trip and saw many dolphins on the 90 minute trip. The crew was nice but I guess I didn't care for a few of the things that they did. The first was making everyone have their picture taken so they could sell it to you on the way off the boat( $10).... More

Line run by old money family from the destin area offers fun and informative cruise of harbor area. Reservations are best,; on day of cruise our excursion sold out at 90 people for both day's trips. You can bring your own canned drinks on board in small six pack containers, really no room for ice chests though. We found the... More

Excellent cruise (although the top deck seats are not very comfortable). Lots of dolphins and a spectacular sunset to top it off. Book on-line through Trip Shock for a substantial discount. Boat is equipped with snacks and bathrooms. Call ahead during the off season as they are hit and miss for cruises if they don't get enough customers.
