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, with insightful narration along the way—great value for the price. Plus, a small boat provides for a friendlier outing, making this tour particularly popular among families with kids.
What to Expect
Your tour begins when you make your way to the Destin Harbor waterfront. 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 captain narrates 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.

Your tour concludes at the original departure point.
