Come aboard Chase-N-Fins, a spacious 50 foot long Navy liberty ship that has been customized for relaxing scenic tours! On the two hour tour you will enjoy beautiful views from Pensacola Bay as we cruise the calm inland waters looking for dolphins.

We stop along the way to view wild dolphins playing in their natural environment. Often, the naturally curious dolphins will swim right beside the boat! Our crew is well educated about the dolphins and will be happy to tell you about the dolphins as you watch them.

In addition to dolphins, you will get a unique water view of local landmarks such as Ft. Pickens, Pensacola Lighthouse, and Naval Air Station Pensacola.

Bathrooms are available on the boat. We offer water bottles for sale for $1.00 a bottle, and you are welcome to bring small coolers with drinks and snacks. (no glass please!)

We also offer Blue Angels cruises and private tours!

Captain Mike and deck hand Charlie did a great job finding Dolphins in less than ideal conditions, searching for 8 inch dorsal fins in choppy water is not easy. Charter was very informative on dolphins and the Pensacola area. Charlie had a bunch of one liners and corny jokes to fill the void in between sightings. The crew was very... More

We went on this dolphin cruise with a large group of ladies and saw so many dolphins! It was amazing to see the dolphins, but even more so because Charlie was so knowledgeable about them and about the area. Captain Mike took us up by Fort Pickens too, and that was interesting to see from the water. A very nice... More

Highly recommended!!! 27 of us girls just had a wonderful time on the bay with our new friends Charlie and Captain Mike! I was shocked at the amount of dolphins we were able to see and how close they got to the boat! They really put on a show for us. Charlie was very funny. Captain Mike gave us a... More

Once to see the Air Force Thunderbirds fly and the second trip we got to see the Blue Angels practice. We love the boat ride, the music, Captain Mike and... More

A group of four friends in Pensacola Beach for Spring break. We did ed on a whomever to take an evening dolphin cruise. We enjoyed the boat, the crew and the opportunity to see dolphins. The dolphins were not plentiful, but enough that we felt we got out $25 per person's worth.

We took the Blue Angels / Dolphin Watching cruise. While we didn't see any dolphins, the cruise overall was a fantastic 2.5-3 hours or so. The guide, Charlie, was entertaining and provided better commentary of the Blue Angels performance than we heard when viewing the practice session from the flight line / museum a few days earlier. The cruise took... More

This was money well spent, great tour out to see Dolphins and get a lesson on their habits and fun trip on the bay. Charlie our guide did a great job on informing us of his knowledge of Dolphins and keeping us entertained. Would do it again, a do not miss if in the area.

Fabulous time...great crew especially Captain Charlie with his jokes. They were dolphinitely corny! I wanted to take my 90-year-old mom to see dolphins and remembered I had been on a Chase-N-Fins cruise a few years ago. The staff was really great with my mom. Captain Charlie even took a selfie with her. The price was reasonable and good bargain for... More
