They took their time and we got to see dolphin, manatee, bird life and the general sites of the bay including a little... More

First time visiting Ft Myers Beach. A little apprehensive paying over 20 dollars per adult, not knowing if there was a guarantee we would see dolphins. This was a very fun experience and definitely worth the money. We definitely will be going on the dolphin tour next year. On the hour and a half tour we saw many dolphins and... More

Well worth the money. The ship was beautiful, the loading of passengers was simple and pleasant, crew was polite and helpful, the day was beautiful, what else could you ask for?! They have a bar with beverages (alcoholic and non) and bagged snacks if you like. Fabulous views, plenty of kodak moments. Took my mom who turned 92 and she... More

Captain Randy did a fantastic job on our cruise. He really searched out the manatee's and then found us many dolphins. We learned a lot about the bay and even went to Flippers on the Bay by his recommendation!!

We went out with Randy for the Sunset Cruise. He was very knowledgeable of the area and was very patient with us as we had lots of questions. We also had a chance to see several Dolphins where were amazing the sunset that night was beautiful. We had a great time and took plenty of pictures.

Captain Randy was a great guide to show us the living wonders of Estero Bay. We saw dolphins and manatee and learned about the bay's ecosystem in a 90-minute tour that's perfect for kids and adults. A great way to cool off on a hot day and experience nature at its best.

Had a great time. Captain Randy was great, got to see manatee's and lots of dolphins. Watching the dolphins surf the boat wake was pretty cool.
