Dolphin Sunset Cruise
Captain was very informative even contacting us before the trip. Accommodated our special request. Seen several dolphins and the whole trip was great.
We took the two hour dolphin cruise for my best friend’s bachelorette weekend and we had such an amazing time! We are already planning to come back and do a day time tour. Captain Tanner was very nice, knowledgeable of the area and easy going, which added an extra bonus!! I highly recommend this company!
We had a great time on our sunset cruise! The captain was very nice! He even took us to some areas that are more known by the locals and not tourists. We found it very relaxing and enjoyable. We didn't see any dolphins on our cruise but the sunset was amazing!
We took the sunset cruise on our last night in Destin. Capt. Madison was great!! It was so relaxing on this private cruise. She recommended us having dinner while out on the cruise from Harbordocks and eat on the boat which was an added plus because we did not expect this. We are not big seafood eaters so we had the cheeseburgers. They were by far the best burgers that we have had in a long time. We also saw dolphins. We highly recommend this to anyone in the area.
We had the best time on Capt. Madison's awesome boat! She was so nice and my family had a blast! Cannot wait to return and would highly recommend to anyone visiting in the area. Private cruise is where it's at! We've done the packed pirate ships and boats and it's not fun. Reasonably priced, bring food drinks, Bluetooth your music. Beautiful at night! Thanks, Madison, for a wonderful time!! So fun and relaxing and gorgeous views
Frequently Asked Questions
When does my card get charged?
When you book a trip, your credit card will be charged for the full amount. In the event that you cancel your trip, this deposit may be refunded in accordance with the cancellation policy below.
What is the cancellation policy?
Since we are a seasonal business, all bookings are subject to a strict 7-day cancellation policy. The charge will not be refunded if you cancel within 7-days of your cruise. Cancellations within 7-days will not be refunded for any reason, including sudden illness or injury. Be prepared to lose your payment if you do not show up for your cruise.
What if the weather doesn't cooperate?
If the weather is unfavorable and the Captain calls off the activity, the tour may be rescheduled for a later time or a full refund will be issued. This decision is at the Captain’s discretion. Temperature, the color of the water, and overcast days do not apply to a weather-related cancelation.
Do babies count as passengers?
Yes. The United States Coast Guard counts every living, breathing person on the boat as a passenger on the vessel. We are legally only allowed to carry a certain number of total passengers (plus captain and crew).
My group has more than six people?
We are limited to groups of six by the Coast Guard. If you have a party of more than six, please contact us, and we can make accommodations. You may text or call us at (850) 714-1097.
Can we bring our own food and drinks?
Absolutely! We will provide a cooler filled with ice and encourage you to fill it with your favorite food and drinks. Take full advantage of having a captain responsible for driving while you enjoy the day!
What should I pack?
Pack like you would when visiting the beach or pool. Towels, sunscreen, swimsuits, coverups, drinks, snacks, water games, and floats are all recommended. You may also want to bring cash for Crab Island vendors if you would like to use their services, and gratuity for captain and crew (optional, but customary and appreciated!).
Is there access to bathrooms?
Yes, however, there is not a restroom on the boat. Your captain will be aware of multiple restrooms around Crab Island and the Destin Harbor, in case of emergency. We recommend going before your cruise, so you do not have to take time away from your cruise for a restroom break!
Are dolphin sightings guaranteed?
Although it is extremely rare not to see dolphins on a cruise, it happens occasionally. Dolphins are wild animals. Some days they are shy, some days they are off following the food, some days they are simply hard to find. We spend every day on the water, which allows us to know their favorite spots and their habits according to the time of day. Dolphins love to keep us on our toes, but we always make a valiant effort trying to find them!
Is there shade on the boat?
Yes, we are the only pontoon charter with a double bimini, which means the entire boat could be under shade at your request. We usually only have one bimini open, but we are happy to open both if you would prefer shade over sunbathing.
