We had an absolute blast! We took three kids (7, 5, and 4months) and three adults on the boat so we got the whole thing to ourselves. Caption Chris was fantastic! The kids loved him and he was hilarious. We saw a lot of dolphins but the water was very choppy so even though two of the adults got into... More

Don't even think twice, you have got to do this. From Kayla at the front desk, Capt Chris and Jet ski guide Logan everyone was so courteous and hospitable customer service was over and above. We drove from Destin to Panama City location and enjoyed the dolphin boat tour so much we came back the next day and did jet... More

Captain Clay took my husband, my daughter and me out for a dolphin adventure. Our goal was to get in the water with some wild dolphins and interact with them in their natural habitat. Clay was awesome. He spotted a pod of dolphins right away. He took us up and down the shoreline of Shell Island and we were able... More

Went our at 9 AM with a group of 6. Great time! Saw several dolphins, including 2 that let us swim with them! Clay was awesome, really knew his stuff. Shell Island was beautiful. Going out in a small boat was a great experience & would definitely do again.

I told took my mom and daughter on a dolphin tour with Clay. We had a great time. Clay was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area. The dolphins weren't very cooperative, we saw 1 sweet female, but the ride was amazing and we loved Shell Island. I especially loved how they communicated with each other by radio so... More

Our group of four seniors joined two young men and the captain for this two hour tour to see dolphins out near Shell Island. The captain, Kaleb (I hope I've spelled his name correctly), was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the dolphins and the waters in the area. In our two hour trip we saw many dolphins along the... More

Dolphins tour with so much more. It was a small group of 5. We got to see at least a dozen dolphins. Then our captain stopped and asked if anyone wanted to swim with the dolphins. I won't lie. The water was cold but it was so worth it. The dolphins were close and so pretty. You could hear them... More

This was the highlight of our vacation! Captain Tim was so much fun and knowledgeable. It was really cool to see the dolphins but we learned so much as well! Tim worked hard to situate the boat in spots where he knew we'd see the dolphins. We also had a secluded beach on Shell Island all to ourselves as we... More

We had an awesome time on our Dolphin Sunset Cruise. Captain John and Muffin were our guides and they did an excellent job finding lots of dolphins and even a few sharks. The sunset was beautiful and we enjoyed hearing about the celebrities that live or once lived in the Destin Harbor. Free drinks were provided on the cruise. Very... More
