Great trip

We just got back from a great morning with Captain Mike. Five of us from 8 to 50 had a great time. Well worth the money.

We should have done this years ago. Everything about the day was perfect. Snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, boat ride and seeing Dolphins. We also saw a sea turtle at Costa Cayo.

My family (myself, husband and three kids ages 6, 8 and 11) went out with Capt. Mike today and had a great time. We shelled on the beach while he set up beach chairs, snorkel gear, paddle boards and kayaks. The kids tried it all and Mike was very patient with them. He also extended the ride back to shore...

My Mom is an avid shell collector so I booked a cruise on the Sanibel Island Cruise Line so we could go shell collecting and just enjoy being on the water. This was a blast. The boat picked us up at the causeway and we went over to Coya Costa. It was a little chilly the day we went and... More

We have been coming to Sanibel for nearly 35 years. This year we had all the family there, grandparent in their mid 70's down to a 3 year old, and just about every age in between. We all LOVED the speed boat out to Coya Costa, the state park very quiet island just past Captiva. We put the kids and... More

Captain Mike was very friendly and interested in pleasing our family. He gave us options and advice on where to go on our trip. He took us to a secluded part of cayo costa. It was like having our own beach! The kids kayaked & paddle boarded while we picked up shells, urchins, sand dollars and even a seahorse from... More

We got quite a few pictures while watching the Dolphins play in our wake. The beach area we went to was very secluded and private so we were not crowded while trying the kayak and paddle boards. The water was too cloudy for snorkeling but we had a great time regardless. We found lots of shells and it wasn't as... More
