Captain and Andrea did a fantastic job of showing us some great wildlife. They knew where to go to see the coolest looking birds and to go shellin' which we love to do. Then, as promised, we saw dolphins playing and they came right up to the boat. I took a ton of photos of the three hour tour; we... More

With our 16 month old son, we had a wonderful afternoon dolphin tour. Captain Ryan and Laura were kind, knowledgable, and professional. We couldn't have asked for a better experience- and the wild life was spectacular!

We've been escaping Minnesota for Ft Myers Beach for a few years, but have avoided the "tour" stuff. Decided to give this a whirl tonight though for something different. Marina is just across the street from our condo. After tonight's cruise with Capt Gale and Andrea, we realized we've been missing out! Saw many dolphins up close and personal. Capt... More

Captain Mike was very accommodating to my family. My husband, father, 3 year old son and I had a great time. Our son fished, played with bait, and got to see dolphins. We caught plenty of fish in a relaxing friendly atmosphere. This was the most fun we have ever had in a fishing trip. It was like being out... More

It was chilly the day we went on our 90 minute tour. But, was still a great experience. We saw several Dolphins! Even saw a raccoon on Raccoon Island. Capt. Gale and Ryan were both so nice, and very knowable on the area and the wild life. Definite would highly recommend this tour.

We have been on this dolphin tour at least 6 times, and the captains ALWAYS find lots of dolphins. This is THE BEST dolphin tour on Ft Myers Beach! We tried others and did this one because they are the best! The Captain is very knowledgeable about the area also. The boat is comfortable, and I can't say enough good... More

99% of the cruise is on Estero bay, not in the Gulf, so the water was very calm. Capt Gale was our Capt and told us that dolphins were hard to find that day. I am guessing they may always say that to cover them selves. We started seeing them almost immediately. Capt Gale would cruise up for us to... More

90 minutes was perfect! We went on the 1:00 p.m. charter, which was a nice time of day. We saw several dolphins and were able to take pictures and video of our experience. Sit in the back of the boat. Dolphins like to surf in the boat's wake.

This was a fantastic experience! Our family took the sunset cruise/dolphin spotting tour. We saw an amazing sunset and saw many dolphins. Our tour guide (Phil) was so knowledgeable and personable. The boat captain (Ryan) was the same. They really went above and beyond to make this enjoyable.

We must have picked the coldest day to go on a boat ride, but the crew would not let that dampen our spirits. We learned about the local birds, in the area, went on a beach and collected tons of shells and attracted dolphins that frolicked in the spray of our boat.
