We had so much fun on this tour! We've been on dolphin tours in NJ before but never in Florida. We saw so many Dolphins on this tour like nothing we've ever seen back home. They came so close to the boat! For the price (~$30/person) it was so worth it! Bruce, the captain of the boat & tour owner,... More

Excellent experience w/ Lemon Bay Tours! Captain Bruce is the owner, but we sailed with Captain Randall. He is a great navigator and pointed out some very interesting birds and wildlife on this 2 hour cruise of Lemon Bay. The highlight of the cruise was watching 10-12 dolphins frolic in the water and circle our boat! Randall stopped the boat... More

I contacted Lemon Bay Tours before our trip and Captain Bruce suggested getting in touch on arrival which I did. It was a week of undependable weather and hard to schedule a cruise at a time we knew would be dry. Bruce was very cooperative, keeping us informed about the weather and giving us the option to give it a... More

This is my number 1 go to attraction when I have visitors at my Englewood home. It is perfect for young and old alike and Captain Bruce is the best! You can count on a great boat ride and lots of dolphin watching!

Captain Bob is outstanding. I went with my 8 year old and we saw more dolphins and gained a lot of knowledge about the wild life and the area and it's history. Excellent value for the money. Will plan to go back and see if there is a sunset tour next year.

Highly recommend! Well worth every penny!! The captain was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the history of Lemon Bay. We saw a ton a dolphins and others beautiful wildlife. Make sure to call and find out what time the boat is running. It typically takes about 2-3 trips a day.

Captain Bruce and Lori were fantastic hosts as we ventured into lemon bay for a boat ride. Within the first 5 mins of the ride we were seeing Dolphins playing in the water! Along the way we also saw many different birds, including a bald eagle and a manatee in the bay! A wonderful way to see all the wildlife!

Cpt. Bruce and the first mate, forgot her name, are very friendly and know a lot about the area and wildlife. We saw plenty or birds and, no lie, about 15 different dolphins. He took us out in the gulf for a loop and the views from his large boat are amazing. It's worth every cent.

We went on the two hour nature cruise with Capt Bruce last June. We called in the morning and booked an afternoon tour for myself and my husband and our three boys, 7, 9, and 15. We were the only ones so we had the boat to ourselves. We brought a cooler of drinks and had a lot of fun.... More
