My family and I took a sunset tour with Captain Gale and 1st Mate Phil! We were able to see the roosting of many species of birds, about 7 dolphins swimming in the wake of the boat and out in the bay. We were lucky enough to have a double rainbow in the back ground. This ride was well worth... More

We chose this charter because of it's reviews, reasonable cost and #1 rating. While we didn't see dolphins jumping out of the water, we did see many dolphins swimming around our boat including a group of four. Ryan was one of our tour guides and was very personable and knowledgeable. The guides also identified lots of birds and explained about... More

These guys took their time and made sure that IF we had the opportunity to see manatees or dolphins we got an ample amount of time to see them. It was interesting and fun. We also took Salty Sams and that guy just bad mouthed other business on the island. It wasn't fun.

Today we have seen first time dolphins in free nature. What an amazing experience. During our tour registration they mentioned is a safe bet to see real dolphins and they were right. It was like a show without a script with 10 dolphins on three different locations. Small advice: Sunset tour is a must. Price is fair. We, a family... More

This was well worth the $20 even if we had not seen dolphins! Great day to be on the water and enjoy sunny southwest Florida. The crew was knowledgeable and very pleasant. We saw quite a few dolphins and the kids loved seeing the dolphins following us and jumping our wake. Very fun time for the family. Next year we... More

We were looking for more of a Dolphin cruise, and when we realized we would be on a Pontoon boat we quickly knew that wasn't going to be the case. Dolphins were few that day. We went to Hickory Island to shell but didn't find anything to exciting, pretty picked over. It was an ok cruise, but should have went... More

We had the sun set dolphin tour with captain Gale and Ryan. They were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They really knew how to get the dolphins to show off and play, it was amazing! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone

I would love to go back to Fort Myers Beach again. I would make arrangements for a fishing charter for more than 1 afternoon. You must book in advance because they are busy, but for good reason. Captain Mike was knowledgeable and friendly. Our kids (9 & 11) loved the experience. This was hands-down the best part of our vacation!!!

Took the morning Dolphin/Shell tour this morning and cannot believe what a great time we had. Captain Gayle and Mate Ryan were so professional, yet easy to talk to. They really explained so much about the unique ecosystem of the area, as well as pointing out so many different species of wildlife. They tried to give all of us the... More
