Dolphin Cruise aboard the Cold Mil Fleet
Ranked #11 of 103 Tours in Orange Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2018

We went thinking that we might see a dolphin and spend sometime on the water- This Cruise exceeded all our expectations- the crew was great fun and very knowledgeable about dolphins and area on what to see and do on vacation. The deck hand had us laughing and the Captain did a great job! We saw many dolphins and got right up and close and took amazing pictures and video. They always made sure everyone including the kids could get a great view! The price was great ( we got the snow bird special 15 dollars a person- great price for the experience we had - we would have paid twice that for what we got- ) You can bring a cooler or buy water for a dollar - has a restroom on the boat - handicap friendly - several people with canes and they helped them and were so nice. Great for all ages and all size groups. The gift shop had a wide variety of things- some t-shirts were only 5 dollars- and all great quality- everything from the phone reservations to the last goodbye was a WONDERFUL experience! Would go back again in a heartbeat- and recommend for all who want to see and know more about dolphins-

Don't settle for any other Dolphin Cruise in Orange beach. Not only do they guarantee you to see the dolphins, they provide a huge wave for the Dolphins to jump, spin, swim backwards and more! We have been on this cruise 3 times and all 3 were amazing.
It is on the back bay and not in the Gulf but the Dolphins don't care. Great value for the money and the kids will love it.

We so enjoyed this experience! The folks of the "Cold Mil Fleet" (be sure and ask where the name comes from) are extremely friendly and professional. We cruised Wolf Bay for about 2 hours and saw many dolphins and other wildlife, including a pair of bald eagles! The crew was quite knowledgable and made the cruise even better and more educational. The boat was quite large and comfortable. Be sure to bring a pair of binoculars and a camera!

This cruise is in a bay so smooth waters. Got to see several dolphin groups, even a baby. Saw a bald eagle and it's nest as well. Cool guides that gave some info but didn't talk too much. We kicked our shoes off & enjoyed. They have a small gift shop and there's a restaurant nearby with good food.

This was our first trip with Cold Mil Fleet. We had actually bought a groupon with another company and it didn't work out for us to go. We were able to schedule same day online. The deck hand and captain were personable and set us at ease. They seemed experienced and explained the process to the passengers. We had 2 different interactions with the dolphins on our cruise. It was suggested there were as many as 8 dolphins during the 2nd one. They were jumping and playing all around the boat. It seemed to last about 10 minutes. I liked the way the deck hand interacted with the younger kids as we were heading back to the marina. He was asking them questions and teaching them about dolphins. I gave 4 stars because they only took out one boat. In all the information I had read it said it was a 2 boat cruise. Our boat was full. There was plenty of room to sit and stand though. Great cruise!
On a side note: We had a great meal at Flippers afterward. It's at the marina.
