Took the Calusa Queen Cuise to Boca Grande on March 12, 2015. Cruise back and forth was very pleasant and we had the chance to see a couple of manatees very close and a few dolphins; Captain Will and first mate were very friendly and took the time to let us see the manatees. People living on the Island are... More

Great scenery, fun music and all around good time! Great place to take visitors for a look at local birds, manatees and dolphins! AND...the amazing... More

We spent a beautiful Florida day out in the clear blue waters with Eco Tours Calusa Queen Excursions located at Burnt Store Marina, Punta Gorda. Our boat club, Sea 'n Shore Cruisers enjoyed a perfect day aboard the Calusa Queen. We watched dolphins playing and swimming, saw manatees, and birds. The spacious Calusa Queen offers plenty of room to relax... More

Took the sunset cruise, 75% was touring around the marina. Huge disappointment even with a discount. They eventually went out of the harbor for the sunset but it was only a few minutes. If i want to stay in the marina why would i take this excursion?

Thank you for this review; it has inspired us to re-read the descriptions of all the cruises we offer. Our website describes the places that we take passengers, and it describes our Sunset Cruise accurately. We try to be very careful in all of the ways that we use to give customers information whether in person, at the Trading Post,... More

I called Captain Will for a sunset cruise about 2 hours before sunset. I'm not sure he was even going out before I called... but he said sure there would be no problem going out for the 4 adults and 2 kids we had in our party. There were three other ladies on the cruise by the time we got... More

I have taken several groups of people out on the Calusa Queen, both in the evening and for a day cruise. Each experience has been beyond expectation. The Captain and his lovely Mate go out of their way to make sure we are happy and well taken care of. They have endless energy and seem to truly love what they're... More

We went on the Calusa Queen with Capt Will and Lisa the other night, enjoying the sunset with our neighbors. A perfect evening cruising Charlotte Harbour while Capt Will and Lisa were pointing out Osprey, manatees, dolphins etc. We all had a great time and highly recommend anyone visiting the Cape Coral/Punta Gorda area, put this on your must do...

Very friendly and knowledgeable crew who promoted a very pleasant, relaxing experience. The sunset cruise started with a quick spin around the beautiful marina, where we spotted manatees, a young dolphin and numerous sea birds including pelicans, terns and ospreys. We then proceeded into Charlotte harbor and viewed a nice sunset before returning to the marina with colorful lights illuminated... More
