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.
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.
Walk-ons are welcome! However, we recommend you make a reservation so we may accomodate your entire party at the time you desire. Reservations can be made by calling (850) 492-6337. We do not have on-line reservations. Making reservations by phone allows us better contact with you to make notification of any changes in your scheduled cruise time due to for example inclimate weather.
