Loved the Sunset Dolphin Cruise!

We went on the Sunset Dolphin Cruise and it was beautiful and perfect! Staff was excellent. We would definitely go again and again! Very well run and worth every penny.

We recently took our family of 5 plus grandparents on the dolphin sunset cruise. It was such a peaceful trip. We saw several pods of dolphins and the sunset was amazing as well! Both Capt. Candy and Harvey were knowledgeable and wonderful! What a fun way to end a beach day! Soda and water were included in the boat trip.... More

We were here visiting our daughter son in law and 18 month old grandson. We went on the sea life adventure to picnic island and was very happy with our experience. The captain of the boat (Paul ) and his first mate (Emily) were fantastic. They were very cordial entertaining and extremely knowledgable about the area and its habitat. We... More

Amazing, beautiful learning experience for families with young children as well as all ages. Captain Paul and Emily were fantastic guides, the experience both on picnic island and on the boat was awesome, we learned about the island environment, the animals habitat and different species. Emily explained everything with a lot of patience and knowledge and she was very careful... More

I have to work a lot so I don't get a chance to do a lot of fun activities on the weekend. However, I wanted to try out Adventures in Paradise because I heard a lot of people saying their trips were fantastic. We chose the sea life one because we have a 1 year old and we thought he... More

Beautiful night on the water with Captain Glenn & Sarah! Very polite and friendly, amazing sunset views and the Dolphins were definitely out to play! If you're on vacation like I was, this is not something you can see often! I highly recommend it to anyone in the Ft Myers area. Thank you so much for the awesome experience!!

Let's start with the Pro's! Adventures In Paradise has a Facebook page and often give away cruises & I actually WON! So generous of them! We also purchased an additional 2 adult passes for the others in our group. We went on the "Sunset, Dolphins & Wildlife Cruise" The docking location is convenient to Sanibel and is simple to find...

Our family had a great time on the Shelling and Lunch Cruise! The boat ride was relaxing with interesting information and beachy music along the way. Our stop on the outer island was picture perfect and the crew had all the items you needed (umbrellas, chairs, shelling/snorkel equipment, etc.) Barnacles restaurant had good food, with nice, friendly service. We were... More

My nieces and I come to Sanibel every year and always look forward to this trip! We have never been disappointed--in fact, every year it seems to get better. On today's trip we saw beautiful scenery and experienced so many up close encounters with sea life. The kids are encouraged to ask questions and the Captain, Bob, and marine biologist,... More
