Dolphin Cruise
Robert_L, Oct 2022
Great fun for all or at least anyone who likes water and ocean animals. It's fun to see the dolphins playing in the wake of the boat, in nature...not at an aquarium.
Worth it!
Kim_D, Oct 2022
There were so many dolphins. They chased the boat, jumping out of the water. Also enjoyed riding around the bay. It was amazing.
Coolest Experience Ever!!
Colin_M, Sep 2022
My husband and I came to Orange Beach for our honeymoon. This was the best experience and so cool to see. We ended up seeing about 8 dolphins total (maybe more) and I have an awesome video showing them jumping with the waves of the boat. Amazing experience. The boat crew was so nice and the captain made it entertaining. Highly recommend.
The highlight of our trip!
Bev_S, Sep 2022
We saw numerous dolphins! The captain would turn the boat around and get them to jump in the waves the boat was making. Lots of fun!

Book this crew
John_N, Aug 2022
Sunset was beautiful with not one but two rainbows. Crew was spot on. Helping families take photos, talking about the shoreline and of course searching for dolphins. Been on many sunset cruises this was the BEST. Choice of music had us swaying on the deck.
Wicked Fun!
