Sanibel Thriller. $42 for adults and $35 for kids. Absolutely worth every penny!

The 90 minute wildlife and dolphin cruise on Captiva Cruises is $27.50/$18 for children 12 and under. I like it. You can do a wildlife in the evening on their catamaran for $30/$20 respectively.


Just off island at Port Sanibel Marina is Adventures in Paradise and their dolphin watch is $25 adult/$19 children. They also offer a Sealife Encounter that's a great learning experience and you usually see dolphin then too. They run a trolly from various spots on Sanibel to their boat and back, so no need to drive over the causeway and pay the toll, but not as convenient as the Sanibel Thriller out of the Sanibel Yacht Harbor or Captiva Cruises out of Captiva Village.

Thank you for your suggestion. I was just wondering, Tourmaline, are you a native of the area or do you visit the area frequently that makes such an expert in the area? Your information is very valuable.

We have taken both the Captiva Cruises dolphin cruise as well as the Sanibel Thriller cruise. Both were excellent, but hands down, Sanibel Thriller was my favorite! Both are lots of fun and we saw tons of dolphins on both cruises. Enjoy!

We also did Sanibel Thriller and it was so much fun! You also get gorgeous views of the homes around Captiva that you can't see from the road which we really enjoyed. Our kids loved going fast on the boat!
