Well organized trip with impressive boat. We got to see at least 3 herds of Dolphin with a total of about 30 individuals. The Dolphins played and jumped really close to the boat.

It is advertised as an "exciting tour boat" and it did not disappoint. During our 1.5 hour tour in this super fast boat we circumnavigated Sanibel and Captiva Islands and saw many pods of dolphins jumping in the wake of the boat. The tour guide...More

4 hour speedboat ride around Sanibel & Captiva Islands. Excellent narration by knowledgeable guide & surfing dolphins! Highlight of our trip -- good for all ages, reasonably priced

Sit at the back of the boat because when the Dolphins swim, jump, and frolic in the wake of the boat you get the best view! Back of the boat does have the most noise and you will get wet.

The other reviews say it all really, but it is simply unmissable if you are in the South West Florida area. We sat at the back of the boat, which they do point out, can be noisy from the engines and you can get soaked,...More

I’m sure there are plenty of life jackets on board. Just ask , the boat is completely surrounded by a 4 foot + 5-6 metal tubulars. Strap a life jacket on them and let them go! We saw so many dolphins.
