We got caught in a storm. The crew was professional and likeable, our money was refunded, and it was a funny memory! We’d like to come back to Gulf Shores again, and we’d try it again.

Seeing dolphins alot like fishing, sometimes they bite, sometimes they don't!

Went on dolphin cruise to see dolphins. Saw a pod feeding about 1000 yards off but couldn't get closer due to shallows. Oh well, boat ride was nice. Captain and first mate were top notch. They took not seeing dolphins personally, really tried to find some. I would bring family back for another try. 👍

Easy to get to, plenty of parking. The boat we went on had plenty of room to accommodate everyone. They had water, Dippin Dots and other snacks onboard (cash only) as well as bathrooms. The crew was very knowledgeable about the area and were able to answer all our questions. They had hermit crabs for the kids to hold. At the end of the tour the staff walked around and asked people if they wanted them to take photos of their group. We did see dolphins but they were off far in the distance. When we were finished we had lunch at the restaurant right on the harbor. All in all our family had fun.
