One of the most fantastic pastimes you can enjoy during your time in Fort Walton Beach is seeing the majestic sight of dolphins and whales on a sightseeing cruise.

Read on below for more information on where to go and what to know when dolphin and whale watching in Florida!

How and Where to Find Whales and Dolphins in Fort Walton Beach

To begin, you’ll want to purchase a ticket for a whale or dolphin watching Florida cruise excursion from one of the many local companies in Fort Walton Beach who specialize in these types of outings. As residents of the area and masters of the trade, these tour companies are experienced in when and where to find whales and dolphins along the Gulf of Mexico. Narrow down your selection of a dolphin or whale watching company based on their proximity to your vacation rental and the types of cruises they offer. Fort Walton Beach and Destin are the two hotspots when it comes to areas where you’re more likely to find a dolphin or whale watching Florida cruise, meaning you shouldn’t have to travel far from your vacation rental to find a company. Many visitors love taking a sunset dolphin watching cruise for the brilliant tropical sunsets over the gulf and the magical, romantic atmosphere of being out on the water during this picturesque time. Other visitors may prefer a daytime excursion, when they can see the whales and dolphins the clearest and when your guests have the most energy. Some tour providers include complimentary snacks and drinks, while others charge for such services. Ultimately, your experience will depend on which company you choose. Examples of well-known whale and dolphin watching Florida cruise providers in the area include Cattywampus Aquatic Adventures, Destin Excursions, Olin Marler’s Dolphin Cruises & Fishing Charters, and Destin Dolphin Cruise.
