Pensacola Beach Dolphin Cruise

View dolphins in their natural habitat on these amazing encounters by boat!

One of our most popular tours is the dolphin cruise. We offer two-hour dolphin cruises on either our 26’ powerboat, Jolly’Ventures, or our 42’ powerboat, Jolly Dolphin. Pensacola Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, and the Gulf of Mexico are home to many pods of bottlenose dolphins. These wild dolphins are naturally curious and inclined to investigate boats traveling the waters of their home. Though swimming with dolphins is prohibited by law, viewing them by boat in their natural habitat is an amazing encounter. On this trip, you’re likely to see other marine life and shorebirds, including sea turtles, stingrays, ospreys, pelicans, cormorants, and schools of fish.

Our Pensacola Beach dolphin cruises may include a remote beach stop where you can step right off the boat onto a beautiful private beach and take a stroll, swim, and look for shells. The Jolly Dolphin is the only multi-passenger dolphin cruise on Pensacola Beach offering a beach stop during a dolphin cruise. The three-hour beach stop cruise is offered daily, based on demand.

This is a scenic sightseeing tour of Pensacola by water. We cruise along the National Seashore and may pass by landmarks such as Fort Pickens, NAS Pensacola — home of the Blue Angels — the Naval Aviation Museum, and the Pensacola Lighthouse.

Jolly Sailing is one of only a few charter boat companies licensed to operate within the boundaries of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. If you are looking for a Pensacola dolphin cruise with a laid back, uncrowded atmosphere, you’ve found it. Better than a boat rental! Let your captain and crew handle all the details while you sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
