Glass-Bottom Dolphin Cruise in Destin, Florida!

Enjoy the peace of a Destin morning with a relaxing scenic cruise aboard the Southern Star! Complimentary donuts will be served as you cruise our picturesque Emerald Coast waters and observe dolphins in their natural habitat. Coffee, Mimosas, and Bloody Marys will be available for purchase as well, so you can kick back and unwind.

Mornings are the time of day when our waters are typically the clearest, giving us the best chance of seeing a variety of marine life as we search for and watch dolphins swimming near the boat. Experience up-close viewing of our local pods of coastal bottlenose dolphins on our family-friendly cruise. Cruise the pristine waters of Florida’s Emerald Coast while relaxing to the sounds of island music aboard our glass-bottom boat. Our fully narrated eco-tour provides fun for all ages. This is a tour you don’t want to miss.

Come have fun with us on this unforgettable Destin adventure!
