Experience Pensacola Bay's Dolphin-Watching Cruise Line with Chase-N-Fins

By Kelly Church

Chase-N-Fins is a 2-hour dolphin cruise line in Pensacola, FL, taking dolphin-watchers on the waters of Pensacola Bay and the surrounding waters on a 50-foot converted Navy Launch vessel. Fit for 49 passengers at one time, Chase-N-Fins is the perfect opportunity for visitors to learn about local marine life, not exclusive to dolphins, as the ship staff is well-versed in local marine life. And for those hesitating due to the possibility of not seeing anything exciting, Owner Joann Johnson says there's a slim chance you'll leave without having seen a dolphin.

"The abundance of fish in Pensacola bay and the Gulf of Mexico provide a great food source for the dolphins, making it a great place to live," Johnson says.

Johnson says that 98% of the time, dolphins are seen on a tour, proving how popular these waters are for the mammals. Plus, Chase-N-Fins guarantees you see dolphins, or your next visit is free. Sometimes travelling in large pods and sometimes in small pods, the dolphins can be seen eating, mating and playing. Johnson says opportunities like Chase-N-Fins gives visitors a new perspective on the importance of the environment and nature.

"To see them find and catch food, interact with each other, playing and just living their life is educational as well as just fun," Johnson says. "They are curious and often times come right up to the boat. They also love to swim and jump in the wake of the boat, normally in groups."

To break from the ordinary, Chase-N-Fins can also host weddings on the boat for couples looking for a more adventurous ceremony. To find out how to host your own event on the boat, or take a dolphin tour, visit the Chase-N-Fins website for pricing, scheduling and photographs.
