“RELAXING TIME SEEING THE DOLPHINS”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is my second time to do a dolphin cruise with this company. Both times it was very nice. The crew are very nice and go above and beyond to make sure you have a nice cruise. The provide water and sodas for a dollar if you choose to buy them or you can take your own beverages if you want. the cruise lasted about 1 1/2 hours so it is a good deal. Both times I went, we saw lots of dolphins, the crew makes sure you know where to look and takes special efforts to make sure the kids can see as well. I will do this again if I visit again.

Reviewed 14 August 2014

My wife and I have been on this dolphin cruise above six or seven time its always amazing. this trip included friends and they can't wait till the next time they come back to gulf shores for another trip with the rest of there family. The captain and crew always polite and on time. If you enjoy a boat ride and want to see dolphins this should be your choice.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My wife and I took our daughter on the this dolphin cruise during our vacation at Gulf Shores. My daughter loves dolphins; so, we thought it would be a nice treat for her to see some real dolphins. We definitely got our money's worth on this trip.

The company uses two boats operating side-by-side to create a large wake between the boats. The dolphins follow along and jump out of the wake. In all, we saw three pods of dolphins. The cruise lasted about 1 1/2 hours. On the trip back to the dock, the kids got to catch small fish with nets in a cooler in the boat. All of them enjoyed catching the fish, looking at each one and returning it to the cooler. I assume these fish were to be fed to dolphins later in the day; but, they were great entertainment for the kids.

Doublesurf, Owner at Dolphin Cruise aboard the Cold Mil Fleet, responded to this review, 6 August 2014
Thank you for cruising with the us aboard, THE COLD MIL FLEET. We are glad that your family enjoyed the dolphins and the fun time playing with the fish in the livewell. The fish that we keep in the livewell are for educational purposes only. The kids get to see a few of the small species of fish that live in the same waters as the dolphins by looking in the livewell and comparing them to the fish chart provided. With some luck and good matching skills, the kids can identify which ones are in there. At the end of day when the COLD MIL FLEET is tied up, ALL fish are returned back into the waters of the marina. The fish are never thrown overboard while the boats are underway and are never used to feed the dolphins.

Thanks again for cruising with us, and hope to see you on your next visit here.

“A Must Do!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

This is our third time to take the tour. We always try to fit this into our vacation because it is a great experience. The Cold Mil Fleet is better than the rest because they run two boats side by side. This allows the dolphin to jump the large wake created between the boats. The dolphins love it and always put on a acrobatic show of jumping, twisting and occasionally flipping. I highly recommend this cruise.

“Great family trip”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We did the dolphin sunset tour on July 16, 2014. It was a great trip and we saw dolphin. Not only did we see dolphin, we also learned about them. The staff did a good job teaching us about the dolphins as well.
