I went on a sunset tour, last Monday night, and we saw all sorts of dolphins,and learned so many facts. The "Flipper" story is so sad. We learned how they hydrated themselves, how they sleep, how the dolphins tend to a female dolphin giving birth.We learned how many teeth they have, how social they are, how big they are, how...

The Sunset cruise was fabulous! The captain, JR, was a great guide. He took the time to explain every little details about the tour and what we can expect. At each location, he will slow down the boat to allow us to enjoy the view and also provides little fun facts about the dolphins, birds, and the small islands. I... More

This cruise is expertly quided with the Captain telling stories of the bay and it's inhabitants. The boat has a cover so a little bit of rain won't spoil your fun. Then after your tour stop at Rumrunners for a snack.

Dear renee s: Thank you for your sweet review. The inhabitants of San Carlos bay, both marine and wildlife are very interesting to observe on each of our trips.

Really loved the 3 hour Dolphin + Eco Cruise. I am usually pretty wary of these types of cruises because I can't stand the non-stop, rehearsed, corny jokes the captains usually tell. Captain JR and Anya were awesome and really made the trip 5 stars. Fun to talk to and they are incredibly knowledgeable about all Florida wildlife. Saw countless... More

This was fantastic. Very relaxing, enjoyable, beautiful and informational. This was approx $30 for 1 1/2 hour. Worth the money. If you make a reservation at Rum Runners, you can eat dinner/appetizer as soon as you step off the boat.

I took the Luncheon Eco Tour with my daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. The crew was very friendly and memorized all the names of the children on the tour and involved them a lot to keep them interested and entertained. It was very educational for children and adults as well and we saw LOTS of dolphin and other wildlife.
