We went on the sunset/dolphin tour. Age span of 10 to 60. Everyone loved it! Capt. Scott did a great job with narrating the tour and making it interesting. Seeing the Dolphins is a great memory for all of us.

We were looking for something fun to do when our son, DIL, and 3 young granddaughters visited. What a great choice! Capt Randy made the cruise so much fun, and made sure we saw a LOT of dolphins and manatees. Plus, Randy is extremely knowledgable about dolphins, and made the cruise very interesting and educational. We felt the cost was... More

Thank you for bringing your family. The Estero Bay is a wonderful body of water and the dolphins that make this home are truly fun to see. All of the Captains of the Estero Bay Express II also get excited when they see our sealife making appearances whether they are on the job or not. There is just something "magical"... More

We took Randy's dolphin tour yesterday. We were blown away! First of all the ride in the boat was very relaxing and refreshing. What a great way to see the waterways in the area. We saw various birds and even some manatee under the water. And sure enough, about halfway into the tour, we got the thrill of a lifetime...Numerous... More

This is a great tour and I'd recommend it to any one thats interested in sea life. You get to see dolphins swim alongside the boat, you also get to see sea turtles and manatees. There's some history its more about the sea and animals also great for kids they may get to drive the boat with captain Randy if... More

We had our boat skippered by Captain Randy, he was excellent. We saw many dolphins, birds, manatees and a sea snake. The cost was $76 for 2 adults and 2 children which is very reasonable. The location is set off from the main road our GPS couldn't find it but we pinpointed the boat yard and realised it must be... More

My husband and I had many choices for a dolphin cruise while in Ft Myers Beach. We were very happy we chose Estero Bay Express and had great tour guides in Randy and Justin. The guys were informative and fun! We asked many questions about the bay area, Lover's Key, etc. It was much more than a dolphin cruise. They... More

We had a wonderful time on the dolphin tour. Captain Randy was great! We saw several manatees, a few stingrays and a LOT of dolphins! They swam all around us and played in the water as we watched. Great day for the kids and adults!

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.
