Dive into Adventure: Dolphin Tours in Pensacola Beach

Dive into Adventure: Dolphin Tours in Pensacola Beach

It’s springtime and there’s so many fun activities in Pensacola Beach. One of our favorite things to do in Pensacola Beach is a dolphin tour. Recently we took a dolphin cruise upon the Frisky Mermaid in Pensacola Beach and wanted to share our experience with you.

We had a delightful experience aboard The Frisky Mermaid! Opting for the top deck, we enjoyed 360 views, ensuring we didn't miss a moment when dolphins appeared. We were thrilled to encounter a large pod of dolphins cruising through Pensacola Bay. Our time was enriched by learning fascinating facts about these playful creatures, and we thoroughly appreciated the crew aboard the Frisky Mermaid.

Pensacola Beach has an abundance of dolphin tours that promise unforgettable experiences for visitors of all ages.  There are several Pensacola Beach companies that offer dolphin cruises including Chase-N-Fins, Adventure Beach Sailing, Blue Dolphin Cruises, Premier Dolphin Cruises, Fun in the Sun Boat Rides, Wave Cutter Fishing / Dolphin Tours, Jolly Sailing & Dolphin Cruise, Key Sailing, Condo Sailing and, of course, The Frisky Mermaid! You have numerous options to relish your Pensacola dolphin cruise, ranging from sunset tours, eco-tours, and catamaran rides to private charter experiences. Cruise leisurely through Pensacola Bay, alongside Gulf Islands National Seashore at low speeds.  Tickets for a larger boat can be acquired for as little as $25 per person, or you can opt to book an entire private boat, starting at approximately $400. Most dolphin tours in the Pensacola area depart from Pensacola Beach, although there are a few smaller and pricier alternatives available in Perdido Key and Navarre Beach, Florida.

Wondering what essentials to bring for your dolphin tour? We suggest packing typical beach gear such as sunscreen, sunglasses, a sunhat, your camera, snacks, and plenty of cold water. Additionally, many larger charters provide concessions and beverages for your convenience.

When choosing a dolphin tour in Pensacola Beach, consider factors such as tour duration, availability, amenities, cost, and local reviews. Whichever company you choose, you're guaranteed an exhilarating journey into the heart of the Gulf Coast's rich marine ecosystem, where encounters with dolphins are just a splash away. So, pack your sunscreen, grab your camera, and get ready for an adventure in Pensacola Beach that will surely leave you smiling.
