The dolphin tour was so much more than that which made for an amazing experience. We came upon on osprey nest that was built on a channel marker in the bay. The nest was about two feet deep & wide, quite something to see. Captain Scott provided everyone with some very interesting characteristics about this type of hawk. We passed... More

Captain Scott and Liz did a great tour of Estero Bay. Captin Scott explained the Eco life, we saw Dolphins, many different birds and a beautiful sunset. We had a full boat but it wasn't crowded. We were permitted to get up and move around the boat for viewing. All 16 in the party had a great time. Thanks Captain... More

Sixteen friends toured with Captain Scott and Mate Liz (who happens to be his wife). They are certified Florida Naturalist who combine humor and interesting information to give a really wonderful tour. Due to a busy President's Day weekend the dolphins were being shy but Scott and Liz worked hard to find some for us to see. We were rewarded... More

Had two Captains, Capt. Scott and Capt. Justin, both certified Florida naturalists and both with a great sense of humor, keeping us both informed and in stitches. They knew where to take us for dolphin watching. Was a great excursion for my wife's elderly parents, too. Beautiful bay scenery, plenty of wildlife, a good investment in time.

We had a wonderful time on the sunset cruise with Captain Justin. We saw tons of dolphins, some of them right next to the boat. Captain Justin was great--informative, funny and most of all, he really cared about giving his customers the best trip possible.

Our captain Jason and first mate (I forgot her name, but we liked her!) did a great job for us. We were on a moderately full boat on a Friday night, for a 1-1/2 hour Sunset Cruise. I had asked before signing up, what the chances were of seeing dolphins, and they told me that chances were very good. As... More

This cruise on a pontoon boat was an enjoyable and relaxing cruise around the bays of Fort Myers Beach. Our captain and tour guide was very friendly, personable, and knowledgable. Although we didn't see too many dolphins on our particular outing, our captain made it interesting nonetheless. We would love to go again the next time we're in Fort Myers... More
