We took this tour on a beautiful clear day. The scenery was beautiful and the crew very friendly and informative. We saw about a dozen dolphins, some came right up to the boat! Capt. Bubba "guarantees dolphin" and points out islands and celebrity homes on the route. Definitely reserve ahead, some people who showed up without reservations could not get... More

We've been on dolphin cruises before, but when we had friends visiting us while we were vacationing in Gulf Shores, we went on another one. There are many to choose from in this area, but few are active during February...this one is. From the minute we boarded the boat until we stepped off, we had an enjoyable and entertaining time....

We must have seen at least 30 dolphin! Captain and First Mate must be dolphin whisperers! Extremely nice and accommodating.

Its a 2 hour boat ride to view the dolphins that are in hunt for food. We saw close to 6 dolpins circling around. To some extend we were not getting in to sea its a back water area,so its safe for kids.

This was a nice way to spend a couple of hours while we were in Orange Beach. The boat ride was smooth and the crew was friendly and informative. We didn't see tons of dolphins but we were close to the ones we did see.

My wife and I took this trip to see the dolphins up close, and we were not disappointed. The whole trip takes about 2 hours, but its worth the time. The captain did a great job telling us about some of the local info and making sure that we all got to see some dolphins up close.Bring some sun tan... More

The Captain and his First Mate were friendly and knowledgeable. They enjoy what they are doing! They were great with children and my granddaughter, two months later, is still talking about seeing the dolphins. I would highly recommend this family oriented cruise.
