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!

Laura Y. Captain Will & First Mate Lisa (Bunny) are the BEST in EVERYWAY. They are VERY caring & want to please you. Make sure you are happy. The trip to Gasparilla Island was wonderful going & coming back. Just needed a little more time on the island. 3hrs & 45mins was pushing it, but glad I got to go.... More

I think the title says it all. We've been on the Calusa Queen twice now and each trip was a great deal of fun. Capt. Will is a book of knowledge. He and his crew keep the the trip interesting with great little stories and fun facts about the area. We love to take visitors on the sunset cruise and... More

Captain Will and First Mate Lisa will take care of you. Great value and all of the historical commentary to make this a great package. The only drawback is the length of time on Gasparilla Island, a place where you need more than three hours. A six hour stay would be perfect. Hope they consider an earlier drop-off and later... More

was looking for a Harbor Cruise to do with my parents on a visit to Fort Myers in March 2014, and had set up for Groupons in the area. While this one left out of Punta Gorda (a good 35 minute ride from their house), it was a lovely boat, had the surprise of beer and wine on board for... More

My husband and I stumbled upon the Calusa Queen when visiting a nearby restaurant for brunch one sunday. They have some interesting excursions that are affordable so we booked a trip to Gasparilla Island and the town of Boca Grande. Captain Will and his lovely First Mate Bunny made the trip very enjoyable. Captain Will has a wicked wry sense... More

My husband and I had originally booked a trip to Cabbage Key for the following day. It seemed we were among the very few who did and the minimum wasn't being reached. Capt. Will called back and told us he would change his Thursday trip which usually was to Boca Grande to also include Cabbage Key if we were interested.... More

A fantastic trip out to Cabbage Key Island. The boat is immaculate and well equipped and captain Will was brilliant - informative, entertaining but above all extremely safe. We saw so many dolphin up close and we appreciate how fortunate we were. Additionally lots of bird life. Lunch on Cabbge Key was excellent - we highly recommend the crab claws.... More

What a great way to spend the day on Charlotte Harbor. We saw many manatees and some dolphins. Lunch at the Pink Elephant was wonderful and the captain told us a lot about the history of the area and the natives that inhabited these islands. This is our second trip this season and are planning a third soon. Great value!
