"Our experience was WONDERFUL."

Our experience was WONDERFUL. I was celebrating my my 50th Birthday and wanted something that I would never forget. The staff did not disappoint. From the moment we set sail, the host made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. We even got an extra treat with the watching the dolphins as well as learning a little history about the waters. We felt like we were alone on a private island. We will recommend everyone to please visit La Dolce Vita Cruises. Mark and myself definitely plan on cruising again with them.

"I can't thank Mary Ann and Capt. Jim enough..."

"I can’t thank MaryAnn and Capt. Jim enough for helping us honor my mother’s wishes. Because of their empathy and understanding, they allowed my brothers and I, along with our daughters, create a special moment that I will never forget for as long as I live. I would recommend you book an excursion with them, you won’t be sorry. Thanks again!"

"Our cruise was amazing!"

Our cruise was amazing. MaryAnn and Jim were great hosts. We had a blast! The sunset was glorious!! 2.5 hours was great, but I'd definitely recommend treating yourself to a whole day on the water!!

"Our experience with this couple was AMAZING!"

"Our experience with this couple was AMAZING! Even with the unexpected bad weather, we still had so much fun. My friends and I felt so at home on this boat despite the fact that none of us had ever had an experience like this before. Thank you guys so much for making my bachelorette party something to remember! Me and Joseph will definitely be back for our first anniversary. ❤️"

"...could not have booked a better experience"

We could not have booked a better experience on a beautiful boat! Mary Ann, Tim, and Jim were so kind and accommodating. The excitement my 4 yo daughter had watching the dolphins could not have a price tag on it!! Mary Ann did a wonderful job capturing pictures for us as well!! 5* from my family!!

"...Great Family Time"

This was the icing on the cake of our vacation, we cruised the night before we left to go home and it was a blast , I will be going to do this again. We had great family time watching dolphins swim under the bow, my youngest singing on the bow to the whole gulf as her audience.
What a great time we had.

We will be doing this again!

"...Dolphin eating shrimp, playing, & swimming under the bow"

We had an amazing time on our dolphin cruise. Jim and Mary Ann were so gracious, they made sure my 7 year old grand daughter saw the dolphins and that she felt right at home on the trip. Their yacht was just like a home on the ocean. We saw the dolphins eating shrimp, playing, & swimming next to the bow. Thank you Jim & Mary Ann for a fantastic experience that we will cherish forever. I give you both a 10 & will recommend La Dolce Vita Cruises to everyone !!!

"Best Experience Ever!"

I've been on a boat before but never like this it was amazing they made sure every time a dolphin came in sight we got close to see them. At one point they were even swimming with the boat and it was amazing. I love dolphins and so far this has been the best experience ever they made the tour very personable and intimate you can definitely tell they love what they do. If you want to go on a boat tour this is the only one you should consider it's well worth it!! I won't go anywhere else! Thank you for the experience and hope to see you again!!

"Amazing Experience"

Mary Ann and Jim were amazing hosts on this cruise ❤ not only was the sunset amazing out on the water but we also saw several dolphins while we were out there. we had teenagers in our group and Mary Ann gave them speakers to play there music and told them history from the area And Jim let them sit up top and learn about the boat. if you are anywhere near the area (we drove in from New Orleans) you have to book a cruise with them, it's an amazing experience . We will definitely be back again when we come back in the area!

35th Wedding Anniversary

My wife and I were celebrating our 35th year of marriage. This sunset cruise was the perfect way to share the ending of an awesome day. Mary Ann and Jim made us feel like family and Mary Ann catered to our every whim. If you have time while on the gulf coast please consider calling Mary Ann and book some time with them. The Dolphin alone are worth the trip!
