We went on a morning fishing trip with Captain Mike. It was my first time fishing and the experience was way above my expectations. We had dolphins following us 12 feet away from the boat and we caught so many fish that I stopped counting them. We even caught a shark!! Captain Mike was amazing. He explained us how to... More

Captain Gale and First Mate Phil, soo knowledgeble regarding the dolphins, and other assorted wildlife. The day cruise was just incredible, saw numerous dolphins along the way and a few more adventrerous dolphins played in the boats wake which was awesome. Saw Manatee momma and her baby and just enjoyed the lessons taught by the crew. Well worth the money... More

This tour is the best! 2 times on this tour 2 different years. Each time the Captain and first mate were very pleasant. Both full of knowledge of the area and its animals. The bird "island" or "sanctuary" they will show you is really cool! They spotted a pod of dolphins on our latest tour and there were at least... More

Captain Gale and First Mate Phil gave us a first-class tour! We must have seen 20-25 dolphin in Estero Bay, including four who played in the wake of the boat for about five minutes! Gale and Phil also pointed out the many species of birds on an island rookery, including, frigate birds, pelicans, ibis, great blue heron, white egret, skimmers... More

Great time with Good Time Charters. Recently moved to area and about 1 month ago we had company and decided to do the dolphin and shelling trip. We saw quite a few dolphins including them jumping in a passing boats wake (awesome!), several manatees and lots of birds. We stopped and did some shelling and came home with a whole... More

We loved our fun and informative paddle board tour this am! Christina shared her knowledge of the area including great wildlife and plant life info. We had so much fun and the scenery was absolutely beautiful. Dolphin and ray sightings made the trip even more special:).

They put us right on top of several dolphins up close and personal she got several pictures and even videos. They had us sitting on the end of a beautiful sunset and right back in... More

Really enjoyed this trip, worth every penny. Especially enjoyed the degree of knowledge about the wildlife and helpfulness of Captain Gale and Mate Phil. Family friendly, pack a lunch and wear your bathing suit, it's a fun ride!

Sunday, Oct. 4th, my mother and brother and I thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise with Good Time Charters. We saw lots of dolphins. Several of the dolphins "played" in the boat's wake. We saw a beautiful sunset with vibrant oranges and pinks. We did stop at a rookery, but it was a little too dark by that time to see... More

Thank you so much for the feedback! We love what we do and strive to be the best. I apologize that the crew did not effectively communicate the location of the bathroom on board. The boat was custom built to have the bathroom built into the hull so as not to impede visibility of the passengers or the crew. I... More

So let me lend my voice to yet another outstanding review of Good Time tours. Our excursion was like a private charter with only nine visitors on board. The day was glorious and Capt. Gale was very informative and accommodating. First mate Phil was a charming young man who communicated in German with the seven native speakers. We toured Estero... More
