Overview
On our one-and-a-half-hour dolphin cruise, you’ll get an up-close view of our resident dolphin pod. Between 50 and 70 dolphins reside together in our bay, and by paying close attention to them over the years, we have named many of them. We know them by their unique dorsal fins and will introduce you to our water-loving friends when you cruise with us aboard the Explorer. The Explorer allows us to get as close as safely possible to the banks and the local marine and wildlife. Because the boat only needs 16 to 18 inches of water underneath, we can sneak into creeks and swamps where few other boats can go, providing you with a truly unique and memorable experience. Perfect for families or those just wanting a Dolphin-specific cruise in Orange Beach. Our expert guides can identify many of the resident dolphins and share fun facts about their behaviors, their habitat, and their relationships within the pod.

The crew was great. The boat was clean and beverages were reasonably priced. It was really busy, boat wise, so I think that might have played into the dolphin spotting. Good activity for couples and families.

I'm so sorry you had a negative experience. Though we strongly recommend wearing masks, we cannot force you to wear one. We do operate at half capacity and try to keep families together but separate from others. We are outside and open air, and we try to follow the Governor's guidelines to the best of our ability.. If you are worried about exposure to Covid,19 going on a cruise with other people probably isn't something you should do. We do offer both private dolphin cruises and sailing tours for your family.
