    Captain Jack and his crew were amazing! This cruise did not disappoint. We seen about 15 dolphins playing, a lot of history on Pensacola Beach and an amazing sunset!

    Great Boat Ride

    The ride was relaxing and immensely enjoyable. However, we only saw one dolphin fin during the entire 2 hour ride.
