First dolphin cruise for my 11 and 9 y.o. granddaughters. They loved it! They were able to see several dolphins and the youngest was able to take a very good video. They both said this was the best thing we did while in the Ft Walton/Destin area. Also, this company is a Christian company and that was a plus.

Thank Annette B

I have been on a lot of dolphin cruises. This was one of my favorite cruises. The ship crew was wonderful to deal with. The boat was a nice size which made it was very enjoyable. We saw a lot of dolphins, sharks and a turtle. A lot of fun!
