The small boat gives this tour a more personalized feel, so you can ask your guide plenty of questions—perfect for families with curious kids—while shade cloth keeps you comfortable on board.

We had a great time with Screaming Eagle. They were professional and very informative. Lots of dolphins to see. If we're ever in Destin again, we'll book another cruise. They worked hard to make sure we had a good time.

Hard to control whether you see dolphins but at least put forth an effort. Basically we got a 30 minute boat ride and seen one dolphin jump.

We are sorry you had a boring boat ride with us on a speed boat across the beautiful emerald green waters of Destin Florida. Even though we offer dolphin cruises, there is a very small chance to not see dolphins. Dolphins are unpredictable and we don't guarantee seeing them so we are glad you did get to see them. It's an amazing treat to have them jump out of the water so we are glad you got to experience this. We offer one hour round trip dolphin cruises. We also offer private cruises for any amount of time more, you would like. You signed up for a dolphin boat cruise on the Screaming Eagle and that is what we provided. I'm not sure what more you expected, but sorry for your boredom on a boat ride in Destin, Florida.

We saw many dolphins and even a sea turtle on our adventure. Captain and his son were great! My kids loved getting a little sea spray on the speed boat as well. You may get wet, but totally worth it!
