Needless to say "captain Neil" was trying to chase dolphins, yet kept scaring them away by coughing into the microphone and banging on the side of the boat? Then when we asked questions about the Florida wild life he didn't seem to sure of where he even was. This place is a joke and impossible to find.

This was one of the best tours my family and I have experienced. Capt Neil and his first mate were outstanding. Capt Neil's knowledge of the ecosystem and history of the area was just superb. He was also very personable which made the learning experience for my family very enjoyable. My kids are already asking to go again next year... More

Randy took us for an adventure that my kids will remember the rest of their lives. He was very knowledgeable and made the trip very educational. We were able to see manatees, several dolphins and lots of varieties of birds. We will definitely go back the next time we visit the area.

Captain Neil and First Mate Matt were awesome. They were very knowledgeable about the wildlife and surrounding areas, and were even funny. We saw a pod of dolphins in the bay and watched as they jumped alongside the boat with us. It was awesome. I highly recommend taking a trip with these guys!

He also shared his knowledge of boating and local history. We saw at least 5 pods of dolphins, or about 20 dolphins. I recommend... More

Took the afternoon cruise with Capt. Randy and had a fantastic time learning about the Estero Bay habitat. Encountered dolphins and manatees right along side the boat. Randy was very knowledgable and courteous. Would highly recommend!
