Cruising the Gulf of Mexico with a guide gives you the best chances of seeing dolphins in their natural habitat. This tour specializes in taking you straight to the dolphins—and provides insightful narration on the way—all at value price. Plus, a small boat makes for a more friendly outing, making this tour particular popular among families with kids.
What to Expect
Your tour begins when you make your way to the waterfront of the Destin Harbor. Meet your captain guide and set sail in the Gulf of Mexico, admiring views of the famously blue waters and white sands of the Emerald Coast as you go.

Take photos, relax, and sip on refreshments available on board (own expense) as you cruise through the water. A small boat only allows for a limited number of participants, giving this tour a family-friendly feel—and leaving plenty of time for you to ask questions.

As your skipper and captain provide narration about Destin’s history and wildlife, look out for pods of dolphins in their natural habitat. This tour specializes in finding dolphins, giving you the best likelihood of seeing them in the wild.

Tour concludes at original departure point.
