Booked four spots a week in advance for the sunset cruise. Based on other reviews warning of a minimum number of passengers we called a day prior to ensure trip. They said they would've called if not enough but still a good idea to check. Crew of two were very friendly and social with passengers. Ended up with five dolphins... More

The charter boat ride was fun. Seeing the lighthouse was also pretty cool. The trip back was kind of boring but overall it was a fun day.

The Captain never introduced himself and stayed in the cabin smoking the entire trip. Deckhand pointed to where life jackets were but never reviewed how to put them on. Deckhand said a few other instructive things for boat and then drank coke the rest of the trip and smoked with captain. There were small children and a baby on board.... More

We loved the lighthouse, it was beautiful! The touch tank was awesome, from shrimp and squid to huge crabs. the Dolphins close to us were surfacing a lot, but the others we saw farther off were actually jumping out of the water! The caption and deck hand were both knowledgable and fun!!!

This was our second trip on the duke, last time was dolphin cruise, today we did the in bay fishing. You get about 2 hours fishing on the 4 hour trip, that was plenty for us. We took our 5 reluctant kids ages 9, 12, 17,18, and 20. They all had a blast. My 9 yr old daughter had the... More

Drove from Illinois Friday and Saturday to Gulfport, MS. I had called Action Outdoors two weeks prior and made reservations for the morning fishing trip and afternoon dolphin cruise. We got up very early Sunday morning (after driving 11.5 hours Friday and Saturday), packed a lunch, and drove about an hour and 20 minutes to get to Dauphin Island. Once... More

I had high hopes for Action Outdoors. Paid for a cruise from 8-12 with the expectation of fun and fishing. I was not impressed by the late departure, 8:10, but we arrived at our fishing site wishing 15 minutes. Low speed vessel, but comfortable ride. I caught two very small, baby shark pups, my son caught one and my wife... More

We had a great tour! The kids had a blast seeing the creatures that were pulled from the net. We all got to keep a starfish because there were plenty. We saw dolphins and the lighthouse. Overall, it was a wonderful time!

Our family and some local Mobile friends really enjoyed our sunset dolphin cruise! We saw lots and lots of dolphins swimming along behind shrimping boats. Staff is friendly and educational, esp with kids at the touching area. We got to touch and see and photograph a sting ray after staff removed stinger. Very cool! We would definitely go again.
