Review of Dolphin Watch and Destin History Cruise

    Kudos to your staff! I was in Destin for the weekend visiting my son who is stationed there in the USAF. It was awesome! There were tons of dolphins and the Captain was sure to announce which side of the boat so we could capture the view and snap a video or picture. The sunset was simply amazing and the staff was so helpful to capture pictures. I would definitely do this again. My only suggestion is to tell people NOT to feed the seagulls as they tend to poop or spit out stuff afterwards.

    Dolphin/Shark Adventure

    It was great. The crew was great. I got a little worried when the boat went to rocking back and forth for a while. but we were ok. I think even though it may not be required to wear a life jacket, we need to know that u have some on board and where they are located.
