Dolphin and Wildlife Cruise in Fort Myers Beach
From $21.20
Overview
Informative commentary from a certified Florida Master Naturalist and your captain’s expertise set this Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve wildlife cruise apart from its competitors. This family-friendly tour is wheelchair accessible and suitable for both children and seniors—unlike more active excursions. Everyone in your group has a chance to see the bay’s famous populations of manatees, dolphins, and sea birds.
What to Expect
Begin your tour from the Snook Bight Marina and Yacht Club. Meet your captain, certified Florida Master Naturalist guide, and your group before boarding a mid-sized boat equipped with shaded areas and a bathroom. 

Head out on the waters of Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve and neighboring Fort Myers Beach. Your captain navigates the boat to attract more dolphins to the wake, while your biologist guide provides information about manatees, egrets, and other aquatic life as you go for an educational tour experience.

Other highlights include views of Lovers Key State Park, nesting birds on rookery islands, and mangroves.

This tour concludes at Snook Bight Marina.

It was a lovely day, the boat ride was great. The narration by the guide was wonderful. We did get to see some dolphins and a variety of birds and flora.

Dolphin cruise despite the rain!

Had a really fun afternoon, despite dodging two nasty thunder storms running parallel to each other! Very well steered by the captain. Still managed to see some dolphins in their natural habitat. A very informative tour and the kids loved it!

The tour is apx.1&1/2 to 2 hours. We sat in the middle of the boat. Since our tour wasn't over-crowded, the Captain was very gracious and allowed us to leave our seats and walk to the boat's side so we could take pictures of... More
