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!

Sunset cruise. Good folks on board. Capn & Mate are natural entertainers. The kids on board were kept engaged and having fun. Will go on one of their day cruises soon.

We were fortunate enough and very happy to have Captain Will marry us on their Sunset Cruise on Feb. 14, 2014. It was truly beautiful and well done by the Captain and his amazing wife, who was so much fun and instrumental in making our Special Evening a wonderful time to remember. But no worries, you don't have to get... More

From the reviews I read about this cruise I was expecting something better than what we did. The first problem was finding the boat. It is within the Burnt Store Marina gated community and there is absolutely no signage to get to the right place. Fortunately our GPS got us close-by and we asked several people for the specific location.... More

We are sorry that heritageher was bored on our Sunset Cruise. Here is our response to his comments. It is easy to find us if you know where we are located. We try our best to encourage passengers to use the driving directions on our website; we are not sure why he didn't. In the harbor we generally are able... More

Had the pleasure of going on the 90 minute sunset cruise with Captain Will and Tom. Though they must have done this hundreds of times, it all sounded fresh and new. We putted around both marina basins before heading out to see the sun set. The marina part was a little boring but informative. The manatees were hiding that evening,... More

Went on the Calusa Queen evening tour this past February- it was very nice to be out on the water seeing the sun go down. It was a great tour and the captain was very informative with stories of the area. I would recommend it as well as other tours that they provide.,

The weather was overcast with some breaks but the water was calm in the channel and slightly choppy in Charlotte Harbor but we experienced a comfortable ride.Captain Will and Bunny are a very engaging...

Captain was very friendly and knowledgeable, it was an enjoyable trip of learning and relaxing, and one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. Worth every penny!
