I took my sister on the Dolphin Eco-tour for her birthday, and it was absolutely perfect! The weather didn't cooperate the best, but it didn't detract from the trip at all! The captains were very friendly and answered all of our questions, and even let me steer the boat (can't say I was very good at it though;D)! We learned... More

We took the sunset Dolphin tour. Captain JR and First Mate Anja were superb! The knowledge they shared was very interesting and the kids loved it! The kids were thrilled to steer the boat and Anja was very engaging with all the guests, no matter how old they were (we had 6 yrs old twins, an 11yr old and a... More

What a fun afternoon. We cannot say enough about Captian JR and Andy for a very memorable trip. They both were very knowledgeable on all the things we had seen on our trip. All the kids on the boat got to steer the boat and Captian JR involved them with trivia and spotting the dolphins. They came around and took... More

RossFamily706, Thank you for the "great" review! The official dolphin spotters did an awesome job locating the dolphins for us! How did you do on the trivia questions? I hope you didn't take notes for the next cruise because the questions aren't always the same. Those little tidbits make dolphin watching a bit more exciting don't they? I'm glad you... More

We took the Harbour home tour, it was very nice and relaxing. Thought the tour would be 100% up and down the canals seeing homes. It is not and that was fine with us once we started the tour. We saw both nature and homes. There were Dolphins in the canal swimming and jumping. Captain JR was wonderful explaining the... More

Big thank you to Capt JR and Anya for a fantastic sunset cruise. It was touch and go we were able to go due to lighting in the area. But with Capt JR gadget the trip left on time. We had a small mixed group from Europe and USA and ages. Both of them made sure everyone was having a... More

We got bumped from the overfilled boat at the Westin and had the concierge book us with Banana. BBTC was excellent. They were extremely knowledgable on all the wildlife we saw, not just dolphins but the pelicans, osprey, eagles, etc. Always offering to help take pictures. They involved the kids in trivia and even let them steer the boat so... More

Relaxing & educational at the same time. Had a great afternoon with Captain J.R. & first mate Anja on this Harbor/Home cruise. Very knowledgeable & friendly crew. Traveled through canals of Cape Coral, saw beautiful homes and even dolphins. Learned about the mangrove trees & wildlife of the area. Very pleasant experience.
