The Amazon river dolphin, also known as the pink river dolphin or boto, lives only in freshwater. It is found throughout much of the Amazon and Orinoco river basins in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, and Venezuela. It is a relatively abundant freshwater cetacean with an estimated. The biggest known dolphin currently in existence is the killer whale (aka the Orca or Blackish) and makes up one of around 80 – 90 species within the cetacean family. The killer whale (along with all dolphins) belongs to the toothed whale suborder because it possesses teeth and uses echolocation to search for food and navigate the ocean. The biggest dolphin is the orca. Even though it is sometimes called a killer whale, it is in fact a member of the dolphin family. Pilot whales are also dolphins! In terms of length, the New Zealand dolphin and the vaquita (a species of porpoise) are probably the smallest at about 1.4 metres. Growing up to 20 feet long, pilot whales are the second largest species of dolphin behind the killer whales, which are also technically dolphins. Currently, short-finned pilot whale numbers are. The orca (Orcinus orca) Also known as killer whales, sea wolves, grampuses and blackfish, they are the largest of the dolphins. Their name, killer whale, has long confused many a person, but the group of “whales” is what zoologists call a “polyphy.

Our Customers Say…

My wife, myself and my little girl had a great time on your evening dolphin cruise on the last day of our trip to Destin. What a great and affordable way to cap off our annual trip to paradise. We will be coming with a big group next year. We hope to be able to share your cruise with them. Thank you for a great excursion.
We had a wonderful time on our trip with you. We went out on the morning of Oct 8th. The crew was great… will absolutely be going out with you guys again. Thanks for a wonderful trip.
We had so much fun on your boat!!!!! We were the three sisters and their families last Friday night. Capt. Larry was awesome, the drinks were very, very good, and the seagulls and dolphins were so cool, and, Nick, our cups are so empty without you!!!!!!!!! If we are ever in Destin again we will definitely be back! The Sea Blaster was not only a blast for all of the adults in our party, but my 2 kids still talk about it and ask when we can go back to Destin and ride again.
Just wanted you all to know that my parents and I had a great time out on the boat on Saturday. Larry and Nick seem to really love their jobs and they really made the trip! Everyone was polite, friendly and entertaining… we will tell everyone it is a “must do” when visiting Destin. Don’t change a thing!
On Saturday at 5:30pm we boarded the Sea Blaster with Capt Larry and his staff; we had the most wonderful time and fun on that cruise. Everyone on board joined in for the fun! We took many pictures, saw Dolphins, we sang along with the music, socialized with others. We talked about the Sea Blaster and the fun we had all the way back home the next day. We plan to come back and enjoy the cruise again during this summer and we hope to see Capt Larry again 🙂

My husband and I recently went on your Dolphin/Sunset cruises on May 23rd, and it was so much fun we drove another 1.5 hours back to go on the May 24th cruise. I was very impressed with Captain Larry and his navigating around the rough weather we had on the 23rd and we never felt a rain drop. We felt your cruise was the best bargain around, many others charge much more and you don’t get free beverages, let alone free beer, and making reservations was very simple. The cruise was very relaxed and a very fun environment. Thanks again for the great and safe time, and keep up the fantastic work!
I just wanted to commend the staff (boat captain and crew) on a fun cruise! …I will definitely use your services again in the future when spring rolls around. Thanks for a fun time!!
Just wanted to let you know we had a “BLAST” on the Sea Blaster. My husband and I were in Destin Oct. 9-15. We went on your Sunset Cruise Oct.14. It was awesome, hope to come back next year and go BLASTING…… again.!!!!
Just wanted to brag on the AMAZING time we had on the Sea Blaster!! The crew was awesome and the entire trip was amazing!! Way beyond our expectations for the price!! It was absolutely wonderful… thank you for making our vacation one that we’ll never forget 😉
My husband and I took a trip to Florida with my mentally handicapped brother Tripp. We all went on the Seablaster and Tripp LOVED it !!! Tripp got to drive the boat for 15 mins (longer than any other one drove). My brother was THE KING OF THE WORLD !!!! … everyone moved to the front of the boat to cheer him on and take pictures!! The crew Member gave Tripp high five and hugged him and told him what a good job he did, and so did everyone else on the boat!! I cried tears of joy and I could swear I saw the crew pull their shades off and wipe tears away!! Tripp is 32, he can’t talk well and has seizures more than normal but, he remembers the day he was THE KING OF THE WORLD!!!!! Thank you for that memory we have with my brother and my family!!

Biggest Dolphins

Experience Destin’s AFFORDABLE FAMILY FUN CRUISE!!


Currently there are 49 dolphin and porpoise species which are grouped into six families: the oceanic dolphin family is by far the largest with 38 members; the porpoise family has seven members; and there are four river dolphin families, each containing just one species.

However, classification is not an exact science and as more information and discoveries come to light, deliberations will continue and some dolphin species are likely to be further split into more than one species and/or subspecies. For instance the common dolphin is now recognised as having two variations - short-beaked and long-beaked. In New Zealand, Hector's dolphin has a sub-species known as Māui dolphin. Only 60 or so remain of this endangered dolphin.

Names and nick names can certainly be confusing; there are eight dolphin names that feature the word ‘whale’, including pilot whales, false killer whales and melon-headed whales. Two species have whale and dolphin in their name; the northern right whale dolphin and the southern right whale dolphin – no wonder both the public and scientists get confused!

What are the differences between dolphins and porpoises?

Porpoises are smaller than dolphins; they are less than 2.5m (8ft) long. They are also characteristically chunkier than dolphins and have a small head, little or no beak, and a small triangular dorsal fin (except the finless porpoises!). Porpoises and dolphins also have a different teeth shape. Porpoise teeth are spade-shaped whilst dolphins are conical. There are six species of porpoise, including the vaquita, which is the most endangered of all whales and dolphins.
