Dolphin Tour Thrill Ride Aboard the Screaming Eagle

Duration60 Min
Calling all thrill-seekers, the Screaming Eagle is for you! This exhilarating dolphin cruise and thrill ride will be...
Captain Brad was excellent! Not only did we get to enjoy a beautiful morning on the water, but he knew exactly where to go to find dolphins in their natural habitat. He was happy to answer any questions we had and was very knowledgeable about Destin history. The boat itself is great: smooth ride, comfortable seats, and fast-pace!
If you are looking to go on a smaller boat for a more intimate and personal dolphin cruise experience, you've found it! Our group of 8 didn't want to be elbow to elbow with tons of people so we looked for a better option and found it at the Screaming Eagle! Their booth is located on the end of the harbor which is called Heron Harbor. Parking is free!! I suggest leaving your hotel early because even in the morning, Destin traffic is awful. After parking down by the dock, we walked to the booth, checked in and jumped on the boat with Capt Brad. We took an early morning trip and are so glad we did! The water was so clear... you could seriously see all kinds of fish. Capt Brad let us choose whether we just wanted a cruise or a thrill ride, of course we wanted a thrill and it was awesome! We got wet a few times and had a ton of laughs. Just outside of the East Pass we saw several dolphins including babies. It was just magical watching them glide through the water beside us. The captain moved the boat several times so we all got the best view and could take pictures. It was a trip we won't forget and are glad we didn't have to share the experience with 50+ strangers. We hope to be back soon!
The team at Screaming Eagle were great. They knew their stuff and I really enjoyed the dolphin and boat experience provided. The water was clear and provided us with excellent dolphin viewing!

A very Personal Dolphin Tour

How did you discover this activity?

We found the tour on TripShock after a Google search of things to do in Destin, Florida.

When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?

We booked it the night before and couldn't believe how easy booking and check-in was.

Why did you choose this activity?

We wanted to see dolphins, but I am not a fan of large crowds and slow boats. Screaming Eagle is a very personal, tour but in a small group setting. Captain Brad was amazing!

How did you get to the activity location?

We drove from our hotel to the harbor walk. We walked the 1/2 mile boardwalk and then walked the extra 1/4 mile to the check-in.

What was your experience with the activity's staff?

Captain Brad is amazing! The deckhand was friendly and knowledgable!

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

The check-in was very easy. We sat and talked with them for awhile before the trip. Everyone was very friendly. Getting on the boat was easy as well. They had hand rails and staff helping you on.

We saw over two dozen dolphins! Some were less than five feet from the boat, and some were jumping out of the water. We had amazing views of the bay and Crab Island, so we were able to get some decent photos.

Keep in mind you want to wear clothes you do not mind getting wet. Watching the dolphins ""surf"" in the boat wake will stick with us for a life time!

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

Absolutely! Anyone planning a trip to Destin/Fort Walton Beach area should take this trip!
