dolphin cruise

Dolphins & Blue Angels Sail – This cruise treats you to an extended cruising time, allowing for a wealth of opportunities to view dolphins in the gulf waters. But when the sailboat drops anchor in the waters of Pensacola, Florida, you know it’s time to watch the skies for the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy’s precision flying team.
