About The Fun Boats™ Dolphin Cruises

Captain Dean and his The Fun Boats™ crew work hard to give your family a unique, one-of-a-kind experience during your Gulf Coast beach vacation on The Fun Boats™ Dolphin Cruises and Sea-life Experience. Our number one goal is to give each and every guest on The Fun Boats™ the most exciting and memorable experience of their vacation! After all, we don’t only show you the majestic dolphins of the Gulf Coast, but we give you and your family a true sea-life experience with interactions with our favorite Gulf Coast critters and an EPIC water fight.

Captain Dean is an Orange Beach resident, born and raised, with a true love for the waters of the Alabama Gulf Coast. About ten years ago, he and his wife decided to get in the dolphin business, and they haven’t looked back since.

Growing up on the water as a child, Captain Dean always loved the time he spent riding boats on the open water and scuba diving with his brothers. He always wanted his own business, so boats and businesses simply went hand-in-hand for him.

Captain Dean and his wife Jody officially started their company in 2012 with one boat and hopes for the future. They wanted to bring a fun, but different, experience to guests of the Gulf Coast unlike anything else in Orange Beach.

In this time, Captain Dean and his crew have focused on creating the best family-friendly dolphin experience on the Gulf by promoting good, family fun and not allowing alcohol on the cruises. Captain Dean’s favorite thing is to laugh and have fun, which is something that shines through the moment you meet him for the first time, and he wanted his business to be all about simply having good, clean fun with others.

In the last few years, The Fun Boat crew added a second boat to their dolphin cruise that allowed a better experience with the EPIC water wars and sea-life experience they are known for. The second boat was originally a fishing boat, and it was transformed into an even better boat, perfect for The Fun Boat team to provide the best experience for you!

With the addition of the second boat, Captain Dean’s hope was that every single customer who steps aboard The Fun Boats enjoys their time with Captain Dean and his crew, and he hopes they make this dolphin cruise a family tradition when they visit Orange Beach.

In the coming years, Captain Dean and his wife Jody hope to continue running their boats with the amazing experience they’ve become known for, grow their customer base, and bring countless smiles, laughter, and enjoyment to families visiting Orange Beach for many more years to come.
