The Gulf Coast is a great place to see dolphins in their natural habitat. Dolphin Watching and Destin History Cruises are leaving from the Destin Harbor daily. The Miss Florida and The Hannah Marie are two family owned and operated Dolphin Cruise boats out of Destin. The boats also have glass bottoms, so you can check out the sites underwater if you are not comfortable on the top observation deck. The tours last about 1.5 hours and it is recommended that you arrive a half an hour prior to the scheduled cruise departure time. Here are some restrictions concerning the cruises:
-Children under 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult
-The boat requires a minimum of ten paying passengers to depart. If this is not met, a customer service representative will call to reschedule or cancel. Large parties of over 15 are asked to make reservations at least 24 hours prior to departure.
-Glass bottles are not allowed on the boat. Additional information can be found here. The tours on the boats are led by individuals who know the area and its history. So kick back and listen while watching the most majestic creatures in the sea.
