Having grown up on the Gulf Coast and lived in Florida as an adult for 20 years, I thought this tour may be a bit ordinary for me. I had a wonderful time, learned so much about dolphins, just fun facts. The guide knew the local dolphins, pointed out a baby and gave us his estimated age. We also saw... More

If you're going to be in Fort Myers Beach Florida, and you're interested in seeing some dolphins, look no further...these are your guys. The price is right, and you will without a doubt see more dolphins than you can possibly imagine. I was beginning to think the extremely knowledgeable staff had paid off the dolphins to ensure they would follow... More

We had the privilege of going out on this boat with our three young children. Within the first 10 minutes of the tour we had already seen several Dolphins. The captain got the Dolphins to surf along the wake of the boat. It was amazing!!! It was definitely one of the neatest things I've ever seen. Along with more Dolphins,... More

Three generations went on this tour and everyone had a great time. We saw dolphins, manatees, osprey and even a sea turtle.

We took the 1 pm tour and we were lucky to see dolphins several times, just near the boat! We also saw manatees. We know there is no guarantee to see wild animals, so our whole family (kids 8 and 6 years old) were really excited! Also the crew was great! A large portion of humour!

Captain Scott and Justin are very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife in Estero Bay. We saw dolphins and birds and enjoyed a lovely hour and a half on the water. We met some nice people and enjoyed the breeze on a pretty hot day. After we docked Capt. Scott directed us to two manatees that were around the corner... More

Our Capt. Scott was outstanding! He gave us a real education into the ecosystems of Florida. We learned about mangroves, egrets, pelicans, manatees and dolphins. He attempted to spot a manatee but none were found. We saw only a few dolphins. Nice boat ride but disappointing dolphin experience!

We were aboard the boat for the 1pm tour. Captain Scott and 1st mate Justin were outstanding hosts; professional, knowledgeable and hospitable. We were treated to an informative trip covering ecological topics (mangrove islands, sea grasses, the sea, pelican, osprey and dolphin) as well as a wonderful and pleasurable boat ride. Some of our "shipmates" were having a party on... More
