Our family took a 1 p.m. cruise to Cayo Costa State Park to hunt for shells. Excellent day, with lovely weather and a capable crew who were very knowledgeable about wildlife, history, and the community. Saw some dolphins in addition to a great day on the beach.

This is so good, we went on two cruises on the Lady Chadwick - one to Cabbage Key, and the other to Useppa Island. Very efficient booking and boarding. Captain Bob gave a friendly, amusing and informative commentary throughout the cruise. Lots of dolphin sighting, performing to the passengers clapping and yelling. thoroughly recommended!

Our group got tickets for a 4:00 to 5:30 cruise - and did we see the dolphins! Very close and they are soooo cute! The Captain and docent made sure we saw dolphins...I'm sure to avoid complaints but they did a great job. Interesting tour info about the wildlife and the area...sometimes hard to hear but not their fault. We... More

My husband and I enjoyed a trip to Useppa Island on The Lady Chadwick on a perfect sunny February day with temperatures in the low 80s. Dolphins followed us for half an hour and seemed to enjoy the silly noises we were encouraged to make as much as we enjoyed seeing them cavort and caper in the beautiful water. The... More

My husband and I booked this cruise service to Don Pedro Island State Park for a plant walk. Very good Captain and first mate. We boarded at Cape Haze Marina in Placida. Very good cruise and service. Everyone on board seemed to enjoy the short cruise and time on the island. We will definitely use this service again.

We took the Pine Island cruise and had a wonderful experience. The guide and Captain are very knowledgeable. Lunch at the Tarpon Lodge was excellent and the acheolgical tour of the Calusa village very informative. Also, a nice walk after lunch. The dragnet of fish and discussion were an unexpected bonus.

Took the 5:00 cruise last night from Captiva that goes all around the bay, around north Captiva, through Red Fish Pass and back to the marina. The tour is narrated by a local expert and takes about 90 minutes. The tour guide was extremely informative on a nice small boat (pontoon style) with plenty of seating. A great view from... More

My husband and I booked the wildlife sunset cruise. We were unable to see a sunset due to the weather. Not a huge deal ..the staff can't control that. ..but they can provide some sort of entertainment or knowledge of the wild life in the area. The young make staff member talked on the microphone for a few minutes about... More

This cruise to the outer islands is a favorite of our families. The dolphins frequently swim along side the boat. Their is beverage service available for a fee. This time it was rainy. We spent a good part in the enclosed area of the boat. The staff is always helpful to answer any questions you might have.
