Private Dolphin, Shelling & Sightseeing Eco Boat Tour!
30 reviews
Our tours are always private, for parties up to 6 in size. Many people say it is the highlight of their vacation!<br><br>No two days are ever the same on the water so you'll get a unique experience. You'll also receive 25-50 random digital photos of the tour &amp; Go-Pro video footage if the Dolphins aren't camera shy the day of your trip.<br><br>This 4.5 hour tour includes a stop at an island only accessible by boat or plane for some world class shelling. We will look for Dolphins and Manatee and other wildlife along the way. There is a wide array of wildlife that is typical to see on this tour in addition to Dolphins and Manatee. <br><br>Feel free to bring the food and beverage of your choice (beer is permitted for adults of legal drinking age). <br><br>Our vessel if spotless! There is plenty of sun and shade on-board the vessel as well as a small electric toilet and fresh water rinse off.<br><br>We welcome passengers of any age as long as you are in good health. Dogs are always welcome on-board with us too!

Stopped in to get a fishing license and some bait. Their staff was very friendly and helped us get what we needed for a day on the water.

The Bait Box is a historic store that houses everything for a fisherman or beachgoer and some pretty cool souvenirs too! I found that because they own their own bait catching boats their baits were consistently fresher and livelier than other vendors I visited on Sanibel.

Great place. Horrible management. I have to put a name out there specifically, Ron I believe his name was, it happened on two separate occasions when I was in there I overheard him talking down to his staff, calling them stupid and cursing at them in my opinion I don’t believe

June 2018, we spent a week on Sanibel and this was one of our first stops. We bought rods and reels and asked the guys what we needed to catch fish shore casting. Was not expensive and they set us up with frozen shrimp and cut bait, and the rigs we needed. We caught snook,
