Lots of dolphins

Captain Paul and Ashley took us on a perfect day and found the dolphins playing in the waves. Thanks for a fun outing.

We booked the cruise online, had no issues finding the place and getting to the boat. Once the boat took off we were with Captain Paul & a marine biologist (forgot her name...). They were both great and very informative. The sunset cruise was beautiful and just all together a great time!

Our captains were Jim and Andy. We loaded on promptly and were given comprehensive (but not boring) safety instructions before departing on the shelling/lunch cruise. Captains Jim and Andy provided excellent information regarding the local waters, fauna, and flora. They both answered all questions and were engaging and entertaining. Lunch on north Captiva was outstanding and the timing of all... More

We took the family to see sea life in the Gulf. We did see dolphins (for 10-15 minutes) but they were feeding, not jumping. The boat was comfortable even featuring free water and soft drinks. The marine biologist was good but didn't talk enough to be as educational as we expected. We were disappointed that the excursion returned to port... More

We took our five daughters (14, 12, 9, 5 and 3) on the Sea Life Excursion Adventure and it was a blast! It was a beautiful day for a boat ride too! Our Captain and the other employee Dana were fabulous. They were both, especially Dana really, really knowledgeable of the area and the environment. We saw Dolphins playing the... More

I am visiting a friend in Cape Coral and wanted to see some sea life. Two of us took the Sealife Encounter excursion. It went out to "Picnic Island" which is a small mangrove island with some sand built up around it enough to bring in a few boats. We used 12" x 8" nets on poles to look for... More

Captain Bob and Ashley were wonderful hosts for our sunset dolphin cruise. They created a warm, casual environment from the time we pushed off to the time we pulled in. Ashley offered interesting facts about the wildlife we spotted (and facts about the wildlife we didn't spot as well). Capt. Bob expertly navigated the boat for the optimal ride and... More

We had reservations to do the sunset Valentines Day cruise and my father thought it was too chilly and he was probably right - so we moved our cruise to Sunday evening. After reading the V-Day reviews I wish we would have gone that night. We saw just a few dolphins that were quite a ways away so that was... More

We enjoyed a sunset dolphin cruise on Valentine's Evening. The two captains (Paul and Andrew?) were very friendly, fun, and informative. We saw lots of dolphins and a gorgeous sunset!

We did the afternoon (3:30pm) tour and the staff (Paul and Ashley?) were very friendly and the trip was very informative and relaxing. We were able to see several dolphins and both staff members were very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. I would recommend this tour highly and do it again.
