Aquatic Charters offers 2 hour dolphin cruises aboard "Chase-N-Fins" in Pensacola Bay and Santa Rosa Sound watching Bottle Nose Dolphins in their natural environment. Along the way passengers can enjoy a sightseeing tour of the surrounding area including Fort Pickens, Fort Barrancas, Fort McRee and the Pensacola Lighthouse aboard NAS Pensacola. Leatherback Turtles, Manta Rays, Herons, Pelicans and Ospreys are some of the other possible encounters during the cruise.
During April and May our 10am cruise is moved to 10:30 to coincide with the Blue Angels practice session. You can check the practice schedule or just call us to schedule your cruise and confirm the dates. This is a regular Dolphin Cruise with the added bonus of seeing the Blue Angels.
On occasion we are ask if we can "swim with the Dolphins". While that would be an awsome experience, federal law prohibits the feeding, touching or harassing of the animals and in the long run, the encounter is more rewarding getting them to perform naturally and respond to their own curiosity. The Dolphins we watch are wild animals in a bay over 3 miles wide and are on their own schedule so there are a few times (less than 5%) they are busy with their daily activities and we are unable to locate them. In the event this happens, we will offer you the opportunity to schedule a complimentary trip.
