We had a fun time on our cruise to Cayo Costa. The people that took our family out were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a 30 minute boat ride to the island and 30 minutes back. We took the 3 hour cruise, so we had 2 hours to walk around and go shelling. When I called , they said... More

Had a great time once we got over the fact that we werent riding on the Lady Chadwick. We had expected a larger boat and ended up on the Santiva which is a single level boat. Not a bad boat just not what we had expected. Crew was very professional and polite and very educational. We took 2 boats rides,... More

Fabulous day on an island shelling. The crew was friendly and gave a lot of history of the island and wildlife. Even saw a few dolphins while in the boat. Watch out for the seatbelt joke.

We saw many dolphins, and the crew was very helpful. I would recommend it as a must do when in Sanibel/Captiva.

Three generations of our group enjoyed the laid back day to Cabbage Key. The Lady Chadwick really is air conditioned inside the spacious cabin. The drinks and snacks are very reasonably priced. Hint: the bartender, Shaun, makes a great Bloody Mary. The boat is clean and comfy. The staff is profession, knowledgeable and friendly. A great way to spend a... More

Before we got on the Lady Chadwick we were able to view manatees that stay around the dock area. The children really enjoyed watching them! The ride was very interesting with many marine facts shared with the passengers. We were able to find 5 dolphins that followed the boat for sometime jumping the waves and entertaining the children. $27.50 for... More

Drinks and snacks upon boarding the boat ("Lady Chadwick" wildlife cruise), comfortable seating, clean restrooms, a very knowledgeable guide (although a bit mono-toned), and awesome dolphin viewing. Highly recommend.

We wanted to go to Cabbage Key for a cheeseburger in paradise. Didn't realize that the cruise itself would be so fantastic! The crew was amazing--very informative and entertaining. History, nature, humorous anecdotes--all included. Our host also pointed out all of the dolphins along the way (and there were many!) and the captain made sure we pulled close by. The... More

Went on half day cruise of shelling on Caya Costa Island. It was amazing. Cruise was about 30min long. The tour guide was informative. On the way you get to see all of the beautiful mansions & other little islands. Dolphins, dolphins everywhere! Once you get off the boat on the island you have 2hrs to pick out as many... More
