Owner description: Our Dolphin Adventure tour has something for everybody in the family, a place to make memories that will last a lifetime. The beauty of the wildlife and nature is indescribable. The dolphins play just a few feet from the boat, jumping in our boat wake teaching the babies to fish. The mangrove forest is home to 150 different bird species and many kinds of native animals. The island is a 9 mile stretch of some of the best shelling in the United states. The beach is as soft as sugar and the Gulf of Mexico is just the right temperature for a relaxing swim. You will cruise the homes of Port Royal and maybe see some of the big Stars that call Naples home. Water tours are $50 for adults and $25 for children under 5 yrs. of age. Group rates are also available. This tour is two (2) hours long. Tour Times are 9am and 11:30pm,2pm,and 5:30pm 7 days a week Customized tours and times are available. Boats are deck boats half shaded from sun.

“Find someone else for your tour”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Showed up at our scheduled time with the exact number of people that we had told them we were bringing 5 adults and 4 children, this apparently was a problem which we then had to have several calls with the tour company about. We were then told that we were going to have to steer the boat and they wanted to know who the experienced boater was. Then the "Captain" started complaining about the price we were quoted for the two hour tour and that the quoted price was too low. At that point we left feeling that this was a safe or legitimate company. So find another company their are plenty of others at the city dock!

I regret that this person was unable to enjoy our wonderful tour. I spoke to and informed the first person that called and booked the tour of the cost and type of tour it was. She said she understood and looked forward to the tour. On the morning of the tour I was not present when my captain called and said that one of the gentlemen on the tour said he was quoted a different price. He also stated that this is not what they were told by me on the phone. My Captain could not reason with him and at that point we both mutually agreed this was not a tour for them. I have been in business for 23 years and regrettably there have been a handful of guest out of the thousands we have taken that we just could not please.
To this gentleman I say I am sorry and to any people reading this I say we don't let one opinion keep you from having one of the best memories on your vacation. Hope to see you soon!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

What a great trip! 2 hour boat ride taking in the canals and fabulous houses and a wonderful dolphin display following the boat up and down. Cap'n Dan also took us to see an Osprey nest with young ospreys waiting to be fed ending up with half an hour on a secluded sandy beach full of unusual shells. Well worth the 40 dollars!!!

“Fun time on the water tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We were given a terrific tour with Capt. Dan yesterday. We were a family of 5 with 3 kids between 8-15 and there was much to see for everyone. There were dolphins aplenty and we almost got them to play in our wake but guess for another time. The other highlight is the privaye beach tour. Great time just meandering the secluded beach looking for the most amazing seashells. Dan was helpful pointing out some of the more beautiful shells. He also gave us plenty of time to wander around and enjoy the beautiful weather. All in all we would recommend this trip to those looking a relaxing ride on the water.

“Great Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Had a great time with Captain Dan! It was great being on a tour with just my family. we had lots of fun! Our main objective was to ser dolphins and Captain Dan didn't didsapoint. For about a miles stretch, he had dolphins following the boat, jumping in the wake, and we were able to see them up close! We drove through the mangroves and saw a couple of eagles. Following the mangroves, we went to a secluded beach. a 9 mile island with only us and captain Dan. He helped pick out shells, took a picture of us, and let us just walk and look for shells without feeling rushed to get back on the boat. On our way back, Captain Dan got the dolphins to play again. The tour was amazing, and after sharing busy beaches all week, it was great to be by ourselves!
