Food, beverages and music by Dannica Lowery

Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge invites you to join them for the Waves for Wildlife Dolphin Cruise aboard the Southern Star of Destin Harbor on Saturday, May 5, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. The Refuge’s annual dolphin cruise is the highlight of their year. The emerald waters of Destin Harbor, the sun, the gentle breezes and what is a sure bet, the company of pods of dolphins make for a wonderful adventure. Watch dolphins weave through the waters of the Harbor and dance alongside the Southern Star as she makes way. There should be plenty of baby dolphins running alongside mama as we enjoy the beauties of an afternoon on the Gulf of Mexico.

Enjoy live music by Santa Rosa Beach acoustic artist Dannica Lowery, nominated 3 years in a row for Best Female Vocalist in the Beachcomber Music Awards, and Best Solo Artist in the Pensacola Half Hour Happy Hour Awards (www.dannicalowery.com). Food, soft drinks and adult refreshments are provided and we’ll be raffling off some great prizes. Last, but not least, there will be a special appearance by our live Animal Ambassadors.

Host is Capt. Steve Wilson who pioneered Destin’s first dolphin cruise in 1994. Captain Steve designed and built the 150 passenger glass bottom boat, the Southern Star (www.southernstardolphincruise.com) that will be carrying us on the cruise. More than 8,000 dolphin sightings have been experienced aboard the Southern Star over the past 17 years. We’re sure we will enjoy the same on May 5.

Boarding will begin promptly at 2:15 pm at Harborwalk Marina, Destin, next to the Lucky Snapper. We’ll be back at the slip by 4:30 p.m. Please call the Refuge at (850)650-1880 for more information. Tickets are only $30 for adults and $15 for children under 10.
