The Best Dolphin Cruise in Alabama
This is our most popular cruise offering-a fan favorite! Our two-hour Dolphin and Nature tour departs from the Wharf Marina in Orange Beach, Alabama. This is a fun, educational tour that consists of locating our resident dolphin pod, learning all about the dolphins, as well as learning about the local wildlife in the estuaries!
Our knowledgeable tour guide and captain point out the local flora and fauna. You may see osprey and their nests, herons, bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, and maybe even an alligator or two.
The Explorer allows us to get as close as safely possible to the banks and the local marine and wildlife. Because the boat only needs 16 to 18 inches of water underneath, we can sneak into our local estuaries, where few other boats can go, providing you with a truly unique and memorable experience.
Kids become Jr. Co-Captains when they board so they can assist the Captain!
**The Explorer also offers Private Cruises; Perfect for School Field Trips, Family Reunions, and Corporate Outings.**
