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

We did the Sunset Cruise on our last night of our visit to Burnt Store Marina. The cruise was wonderful and I look forward to taking friends and family that come to visit now that we have moved close. The local information was an unexpected bonus as was seeing all the wildlife. The Captain made sure everyone had time to... More

The sunset cruise was amazing. My husband and I, and our teenagers enjoyed seeing manatees and dolphins as well as a beautiful sunset! Was also given some history of the area as well! Definitely would do this again. Next visit will include the trip to Boca Grande. Don't miss out!
