Great way to avoid traffic

Great way to avoid the traffic. Captain Butch picked us up at our condo 3 times and took us to our favorites spots then picked us up. Excellent service and hospitality.
Captain Butch is great.

Captain Butch’a number one fan!!
Apr 2021 • Friends
Captain Butch was fantastic! There is minimal transportation and he was a perfect option to get us around. I wish we would have known he was there from the beginning of our trip. I would recommend trying to book your services a day in advance, as he is a well liked hot commodity! Super sweet man, and very fun to chat with.

Best taxi service in Fort Myers beach area
Apr 2021 • Friends
Captain Butch is BY FAR the best way to get from San Carlos Island to Fort Myers beach! He takes reservations and will pick up in a variety of places! He was a sweet man and a highlight of our trip! The taxi fair is very reasonably priced... so much so, we had him pick us up almost every day of our trip! Thanks Captain Butch!

Captain Butch saved the day with his Water Taxi!!
Mar 2021 • Friends
This Water Taxi made our day! We were across the bridge at the Marina after getting done with a boat ride, we tried to get a ride back on the island but there was nothing available for 2 hours! We found Captain Butch’s card at the marina and he found a way to work us in!! It took us 5 minutes to get to our destination. We will absolutely use this service in the future - would highly recommend.

Rescue mission!
Mar 2021 • Friends
After riding beach cruisers from Ft Myers Beach to Sanibel island , up and down all the bridges on bikes with no gear changes, our legs were rubber and our back sides sore . We had pedaled over 20 miles ! Traffic was horrible, headwinds were strong and we were desperate to get home in time for sunset without getting even more wiped out! That’s when we discovered our own version of Superman of the Sea—Captain Butch ! He picked us and our bikes up by the Sanibel bridge, we sat down on his comfy chairs, rested our weary legs while being whisked across the bay back to Ft Myers and enjoyed the fresh air without working for it . On the other side he hoisted our bikes off the boat on a local pier and we jumped off ready for the much shorter bike ride home ! What a lovely man , a fabulous service and a rescue mission success! Thank you Captain Butch! Ft Myers needs more of you!

Best water taxi in town
Mar 2021 • Friends
What a great afternoon. We discovered Captain Butch's Water Taxi at the dock outside Doc Ford's Restaurant in Fort Myers Beach. A inexpensive way to avoid parking and the bridge for anyone who wants to hop from one restaurant or bar to another. Will definitely use again. Thumbs up Captain!

Took Capt. Butch’s taxi to Doc Fords from our rental last night. He was an absolute pleasure. Picked us up at our rental on the canal. Came back afterwards - great way to beat the traffic! We would definitely use him again!

Captain butch’s water taxi
Mar 2019 • Family
I highly recommend Captain Butch! We were stuck on Sanibel Island as no taxi could bring us back to Fort Myers Beach and Uber would not pick up from the island. We called him in a panic. He was very helpful. He said he doesn’t normally pick up from there but figured out a place to pick us up and had us back to Fort Myers beach very quickly. Plus we avoided the traffic jam crossing the bridge back from Sanibel and it was less expensive than a cab/ Uber. I would definitely use his service again the next time we are in Fort Myers!

Awesome way to travel!
Mar 2019 • Friends
Captain Butch came right to the dock of the resort we were staying at, then took us on a leisurely ride to the island (after asking if we were in a hurry or not). Then, after we told him we probably would stay later than planned, he called to double check before his last run of the day! 🙂 If you want to have a great ride with two super nice people, give him a call. I almost hate giving away this “best kept secret”!
