We took the Sea Life Encounter Excursion and it was AWESOME. It is educational and fun and perfect for ALL ages. Captain Paul was great and Michael, the marine biologist on board was fantastic! We got a hands on experience with baby seahorses, a baby pufferfish, and other sealife. On the way back to dock we saw several pods of... More

Captain Bob and Alicia guided our group on an excitingly wonderful and educational trip to learn about the small ocean life in the gulf. The children and adults got to catch their own wildlife and Allicia then educated the group on each species and their importance in the area. The entire two and one half hour tour went by quickly...

My mom and I went out on 7-23-15. It was a 6 hour cruise, we got to do some shelling and relaxing on a beautiful white sand beach. We saw a stingray and horseshoe crabs on the island. Lunch at Barnacles was amazing. While we were enjoying delicious ice cream from Barnacles we saw a manatee and her calf. On... More

Love this tour! Always a great day. Captain Glen and Michael did an excellent job answering questions and they interacted well with the kids. Third time we have done this while in Sanibel, hope to do it for a fourth time next year.

Although we didn't see many Dolphins, it was a great tour with very knowledgeable crew. The boat was clean, and they had donuts, water, and soda for the customers. I highly recommend it.

Took our family on the 1 1/2 hour Dolphin cruise. Can't say enough about Captain Gene and Captain Paul. They were gracious, extremely knowledgeable and very professional. They went out of their way to make sure we were able to see dolphins up close and personal! The boat was spotlessly clean. They also had donuts, soft drinks and water available... More

My wife and I took our 13 year old and his friend fishing - had a blast! Captain Bob and Jerry are the best. Everything is included - poles, bait and even bottles water. Trip begins with a beautiful boat ride to 'the spot' of the day and from then on it's nothing but fun. Jerry and Cptn. Bob helped... More

If you have never fished before or you have young children who have never fished this trip might be ok for you, but 22 people on a large pontoon boat with only two people to bait, take fish off (they insisted) and de-tangle all the lines of new fisherman, it still would not have been good for us.

The shelling lunch cruise was terrific. They take you to North Captiva Island which is only accessible by boat. The waters are clear and great for snorkeling. They provided snorkeling gear, chairs, and umbrellas and even set all of that up for us. They provided pop and water. A marine biologist accompanied us and was very informative about the local...
