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 and learning about our resident dolphin pod, as well as learning about the local wildlife [flora and fauna] that call the back bays home!

Our knowledgeable tour guides and captain point out the local flora and fauna. You may see osprey and their nests, herons, bald eagles, and red-tailed hawks.

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!

*Please note: we are not handicapped accessible, and we do not permit strollers on board.*

**The Explorer also offers Private Cruises; Perfect for School Field Trips, Family Reunions, and Corporate Outings.**
