We took three adventures this week, all with Captains Glenn and Mike. We did the Sunset Dolphin Cruise, the Backwater Fishing Cruise, and the Sea Life Encounter. All of the cruises were fantastic. We saw some great wildlife and caught fish. Glenn and Mike were fun, entertaining and patient when helping my boys (ages 11,9,7,and 7) fish. We will definitely... More

We went at 10am for the morning dolphin cruise. Staff was amazing, the ocean was beautiful and the Dolphins were phenomenal. Very knowledgeable captain and first mate, Harvey and Josh. Very friendly. Complimentary donuts and beverages (on a hot boat, the cold water was GREATLY appriciated). Saw some other wildlife and learned quite a bit about dolphins and Florida. Great... More

Our family of ten including four grandkids recently took the 2.5 hour Sea Life Excursion offered by Adventures In Paradise in Ft Myers. There were roughly 40 people in the entire group and after a 30 minute boat ride out to a small uninhabited island off of Sanibel Island, we were all given small nets similar to skimmers and proceeded...

We did the Sea Life Encounter Excursion and had a ball. There is a Marine Biologist on board to help identify things; he's great and gentle with kids. Great to see kids so excited about the local ecology and going "awwwe" when it was time to go back in. The time on Picnic Island was awesome. We saw all sort... More

The Shelling and Lunch cruise was so much fun. The boat ride alone was worth the price. The beach was beautiful and the shells were everywhere. The two captains (captain Glenn and another I forgot) were so knowledgable and truly made the experience. They even stopped for us to see the Dolphins. I would highly recommend this to anyone that...

I highly recommend their fireworks experience. The boat was not crowded, saw a lot of dolphins and the fireworks were amazing. We plan to make this an annual event!

Our second year of touring with the AIP staff on the Fireworks Cruise. AIP provides a safe, friendly and informative environment which is why we will continue to cruise with them far into the future. As a former travel agecncy owner, I atest that the staff in this organization is top notch and genuinely happy about working there. Sadly, this... More

I discovered Adventures in Paradise on TripAdvisor when looking for something special to do during our week in Fort Myers. I booked the "Sea Life Encounter Excursion" online for my family (myself/my wife/my 7 yr. old daughter/my 8 yr. old daughter). Because their website warned they have a "minimum occupancy" required for each outing, and because the weather can also... More
