Today we experienced a great trip with captain JR and first mate Anja! We saw a lot of dolphins, a few manatees in the open water which was unusual for this time of year. Later we saw a manatee in the canal. We also saw a spotted sting ray (the first of this season according to JR). It was a... More

We loved the trip. The captain was great and gave all of the kids on the boat an opportunity to help him drive the boat. We weren't seeing any dolphins, so he asked if anyone minded if he extended the trip a little bit in hopes of finding some dolphins. We did end up finding a pretty large group of... More

Went on the sunset tour and saw several different groups of dolphins. JR and Anja were very informative about the dolphins and the ecosystem. We got to see an awesome sunset and we could bring our own drinks.

The ecological dolphin and lunch cruise was great! We saw lots of dolphins and the were lucky enough to see manatee's too. Captain JR let both of my kids drive the boat. JR and Anja were great guides and answered all questions. Lunch at Picnic Island was a treat! Would go again!

We took the ecological half day trip with JR and Anje. It was a great trip. Both guides were knowledgable, friendly and great hosts. JR remembered all the kids names and each got to drive the boat. We saw dolphins, manatees and birds. We'll worth the money and even the sandwich lunch was lovely!

Although this tour is great for kids it really is excellent for all ages! We went as four adults on the afternoon trip which starts at 12pm and lasts 1.5 hours. Don't think we got back to the Harbour at Rumrunners till nearer 3pm! Captain JR asked if anyone needed to be back early and since no-one did the tour... More

We were with my in-laws who we're visiting from Nevada. Captain J.R. And First Mate, Danny were great!! The manatees were an added bonus. Captains Zach and Rebecca enjoyed their turn driving the bait very much. Thank you for a terrific experience. It's always great to see these animals in their natural habitats.

Really recommend this cruise for everyone of all ages. Had a wonderful experience with captain JR and Anja. When we spotted dolphins there was no rushing and in fact the motors were cut off so that we could have extensive viewing time with the dolphins. This boat tour is interested in sharing information about the habitat and the dolphins and... More

My in-laws own a place in Cape Coral so the family frequently enjoys a tour with Banana Bay. I just had my first experience on the Sunset Dolphin tour last week... AMAZING! We saw a small pod of dolphins in the bay and even got to experience some "fish chasing"... it was breath taking to see how quickly the cute... More

Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon on the water. We appreciated the knowledgeable and fun Captain JR. He was funny, engaging and great with our 3 girls (ages 6, 4 & 1). My Grandma (age 85) enjoyed herself immensely too. It was evident that he really cares for the natural habitat and would even turn off the engines... More
