The tour was absolutely AMAZING!!!! On the tour we saw a manatee, many dolphins and birds!! It was so relaxing and beautiful. As we were heading back to the dock, dolphins chased after the boat for multiple minutes. It was a perfect photo opportunity! The captain was so funny and was able to pull over next to whatever you were... More

We counted 22 dolphins we saw. At some point a mommy and calf were jumping along side of us. Tons of cool birds. Staff was amazing. Affordable compared to other places.

Captain Gail and Phil are great hosts for this sunset cruise. We were able to see dolphin , manatees, and a wide variety of other birds . The boat is fun and the tour again was great. After 30 minutes of shelling we went out into the gulf to watch the sunset over Sanibel. Would definitely do this again. Thanks... More

We took the 9 am cruise and enjoyed it immensely. Captain Steve and Laura were delightful, knowledgeable and very friendly answering questions and providing great historical tidbits too. I would recommend this tour for anyone that wants to truly learn about this beautiful area, catch some dolphins and unique wildlife.

In looking for a short boat trip around Ft. Myers, I was able to find only expensive charters and kid-oriented boat rides until I found this one, which is basic but delivers big time. The host is a fun, knowledgeable dude and we had unbelievable dolphin sightings including them surfing on our wake. The tour also includes a visit to... More

Captain Gale and First Mate Phil were amazing! We booked a 1.5 hour sunset cruise. We saw dolphins jumping the wake, lots of birds and a beautiful sunset. Lots of interesting animal facts and it was a smooth ride. We all enjoyed it and would recommend it if you are in the Fort Myers area.

My wife and I booked a one hour afternoon dolphin cruise without expecting much. Wow, we had such a great experience! It was only $20/person and well worth it. They took us out into Estero Bay and all the way south, past Lovers Key Park. We actually saw dolphins and manatees up close. In fact, on our way back, one... More

We took the 1 PM dolphin tour this August. We past an rookery island fill of birds, we saw Osprey nesting, Frigate birds, roseate spoonbills, and other everglade birds. We were fortunate to see several manatees and of course dolphins. To end the trip we were fortunate to have two dolphins play in our boat wake jumping into the air... More

Really great morning out with Captain Gale & Phil. They were great hosts, very knowledgable and made our family feel very welcome & comfortable. Online booking very easy. We were met by Phil on the dock and told what to do / where to go. We saw our first dolphin within 5 mins of leaving the dock. We also saw... More
