We've gone on two other excursions during vacations to Sanibel, and this was by far the best. The boat ride to North Captiva was fun, the shelling was great, lunch at Barnacle's was memorable, and the trip home was filled with dolphin sightings. Our captains, Glenn and Mike, were what made our trip so fun. They passed along a lot... More

On the way out to sea, Captain Glen gave us an overview of the equipment and how to use it properly. All the fishing poles and bait were included. They even offered to filet the fish for us and had coolers with water and soda to drink. We took our two young children on this excursion and left at 9am.... More

Our family with young boys took the morning dolphin tour. The captain and tour guide were very friendly and knowledgeable about the wild life in the Sanibel area, as well as local history. We learned quite a bit about Sanibel and dolphins that we didn't know about. During the tour, we spotted a pod of about 6-8 dolphin mothers and... More

My family took the afternoon dolphin tour. We really didn't get to see many dolphins - a few from far away. You board the tour in Ft. Myers so if you are in Sanibel you need to leave the island to catch the boat and yes play the bridge toll again (as you head back home to Sanibel). The tour... More

Second time we have gone out with this fine excursion. Weather was cool but perfect early morning boating and fishing. Nice small group and very knowledgable Captain Bob and mate Andrew.

Took my 6 & 8 yr olds on this. They learned so much and found it very fun and exciting. It is a very hands on trio. While they weren't super keen on fishing around in the water (it was kinda cold that day) they were happy to look at everyone else's catch. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.... More

We have been on their Shelling and Lunch Cruise as well as their Sunset and Dolphin cruise. Absolutely perfect. Great staff, captains, and guides....complete safety, knowledgeable guides, free water and soda. Well priced. Great fun and relaxation, whatever you're looking for. Every time we go to Sanibel we will always be on one of their cruises.

Captains Paul & Dave were excellent hosts as their large pontoon boat was surrounded by dolphins in a gorgeous gulf sunset. This is a MUST DO for any first-time visitors to Sanibel or Captiva. Fun and reasonably priced.
