Captain JR and Anya were very good tour guides and engaged everyone on the boat. They made sure everyone had an opportunity to see the wildlife and interacted well with the children on the boat. We were extremely lucky and saw 5 manatee's, 5 dolphins, 1 bald eagle (baby), and many other birds/fish. The trip is just the right amount... More

We took the Sunset Dolphin Cruise with JR and Andy. It was a very enjoyable evening with a beautiful sunset. JR and andy made sure that everyone was able to see the dolphins. I would recommend this tour for a nice relaxing way to spend an evening. It is fun for kids too.

My family of 4 absolutely loved the Dolphin cruise. Captain JR was fantastic, entertaining, informative and excellent with the kids on the boat. We saw about 10-12 dolphins, he explained each group that we saw, stopped for long periods of time for all to enjoy the dolphins.

My wife and I were on vacation in Cape Coral and took the sunset dolphin cruise on 4/17/15. What a wonderful experience seeing all the dolphins and learning all about their habitat with Captain JR and First Mate Andy. The two of them really know how to keep their passengers laughing and interested in the sights and sounds. We saw... More

Amazing cruise. Sunset wasn't the best but it was made up for by the cool captain JR and first mate Andy... Two knowledgeable men with a sense of humor. They care about what they do.... Gave two little kids a great experience. I was super impressed. Saw jumping dolphins. Best tour in SW florida.

Boat tour was very interesting. Capt JR entertained my 7yr old great-grandaughter by allowing her to sit with him and steer boat. He explained steering and asked her questions and she loved it. Capt JR also had two other children do the same and after each one, we all applauded. He explained many things, we saw many dolphins, even a... More

The dolphin and eco trip was fantastic. Captain JR and first mate Andy made this the highlight of our South West Florida trip from the UK. We were treated to a variety of wildlife over and above our expectations. We must have seen well over 11 dolphins in total, as well as a mass of cow nosed sting rays. We... More

Our family give Captain JR. and his first mate Andy 2 thumbs up for their Dolphin Boat Tour. We did see plenty of Dolphins, were able to get some amazing pictures, and enjoyed the dolphin education lesson provided by JR. - great for the kids. Thanks for a beautiful afternoon on our last day in Florida!

We took visiting friends on the Dolphin/Sunset Cruise ($36/pp for two hours) on 4/11/15. Fortunately the weather was perfect (as it usually is here! 😊) Captain JR and his first mate Andy were so very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and pointed out so many interesting sites! We saw Dolphins galore and a gorgeous sunset! The "crew" paid extra attention... More
