This is our 3rd time taking a tour with Banana Bay Tours. It was once again one of the best tours we have been on. This is a must if you are in the Cape Coral area. JR is the best captain ever. You will not be disappointed. Thanks JR for another great trip!!!

Went with my wife and a couple of friends who live in the area. Large pontoon boat with captain and first mate. Plenty of shade (no need for hats as it's windy on the boat). Friendly and knowledgeable crew provided interesting facts (although I still don't believe that dolphins are responsible for 10 human deaths a year!). Besides the many... More

We live in Cape Coral, so have taken several guests on various boat trips from Sanibel, Fort Myers Beach, and Cape Coral. This is HANDS DOWN the BEST boat trip and dolphin watching tour we have ever been on. We highly recommend it! The Captain and first mate were a couple of older guys who were seriously interested in explaining... More

Capt JR and anja where really informative about what we saw, and we learned a lot about Florida wild life. They even let us stay out an extra hour because... More

We've been living here for 15 years, and I can't believe we haven't gone on this dolphin tour until now! What fun! We saw over 20 dolphins, watching them play and wrestle and beat their tails on the water. The captain had so much information and could answer our questions very knowledgeably. Anya was such an asset with her friendliness... More

My wife, 3 year old daughter and I went on the Sunset Dolphin cruise with JR and Andy in April. I can say that tour exceeded every expectation that ever had. JR completely engaged our 3 year old and completely captured our attention for the entire evening. The time spent was completely relaxing and extremely informative. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone... More

The boat was very comfortable, the crew very friendly and helpful! We followed the Dolphins to see them amazingly close! Would recommend, it's a lot of fun! At the lunch island take mosquito spray with you, then you'll be able to have a care free and beautiful wild life view!

Dear Lukas M, Thank you so much for your fantastic review of our Ecological Dolphin & Lunch Tour. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your tour with us. Seeing dolphins that close is always a special experience. Sometimes when they are that close to the boat we can even hear their high-pitched whistles. Were you even able to... More

The crew was very friendly and we saw all sorts of Dolphins. The crew also talked about dolphins and the estuaries we were traveling in. Overall the trip was well worth the price.

We took this trip today ( my 83 year old father and myself) and it was excellent. Captain JR and Andy were both great hosts, with just the right amount of interaction with the guests. The boat is all under cover, which is welcome in the heat of the midday sun. We saw lots of dolphins and were given plenty... More
