Went on the thanksgiving sunset tour and it was wonderful! We were not only treated to a nice piece of pumpkin pie, but also to a great dolphin show! Lots of them stayed near the boat, everybody was quiet and you could hear the dolpins breathe while the sun went down, magical!

The sunset dolphin cruise was very good and well worth the money. We saw many dolphin and several right by the boat, even saw a bald eagle, and the sunset was beautiful. Captain and naturalist were informative.

We hoped to book the shelling cruise but it was sold out so we opted for the morning dolphin cruise. The staff were courteous, accommodating and knowledgeable and the boat was spotless. We are locals so seeing the dolphins was no big deal to us- we just wanted a fun day out on the water. We did see dolphins along... More

We enjoyed the seashell and lunch tour today. Captain Jim and first mate Evan were terrific. Everything was terrific. We had 4 adults and 3 teenagers, and all found this tour great. We started off with 50 min boat ride out to Captiva Island, then spent about 90 minutes scouring the shoreline for sea shells. It was beautiful. They then... More

We took the 10 a.m. dolphin and wildlife cruise. Our captain and his first mate were very knowledgeable and made the trip very comfortable. We were lucky and saw quite a few dolphins that day, lots of birds and a bald eagle's nest on one of the little islands! I would definitely do this trip again ....

We took the Shelling Cruise with Mark and Jim on October 18. They were very knowledgeable and entertaining. The dolphins were being somewhat shy this day, but Mark and Jim did their best to locate some for us. Thank you for a lovely trip.

Took the morning Dolphin tour with Evan and Glen. Saw plenty of dolphins, seabirds and two bald eagles in their island nest. Great narration, really friendly attitude, and obviously enjoy what they do. Highly recommended.
