We took this cruise last night and loved it!! The boat is comfortable, Capt Will is witty and knowledgeable about the ecosystems & history along the way, and Lisa (Bunny), the First Mate, is delightful😀. The sunset was brilliant and seeing Burnt Store Marina from the water was stunning! Highly recommend if you are in the area!! Great value for... 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!

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
