Cruise Reviews

"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dolphin Express for you cruising adventure. The crew is professional, friendly and helpful. Our original date fell during a series of rain and thunderstorms. They call us to reschedule on a better night. The ship was not overcrowded so everyone got a great view off the side. And you see a lot of dolphins. Later we got to cruise around Pensacola Bay to take in the sights and the amazing Florida sunset."




Awesome time on the Dolphin Express! Super friendly captain and crew. Tons of dolphins along the way. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!




The ultimate Florida thing to do! Captain Jeff spotted Dolphin as soon as we got into the bay. I will definitely vacay  on Pensacola Beach again 




My 90 year old mother, and 28 of her descendants took this cruise yesterday. The courtesy and respect they showed us, the efforts they made to find dolphins and the information they gave us made the day worth while. We had a wonderful time. Gorgeous sunset was an added bonus, gift from our Creator!
