We visited the Cape Coral area last week on our trip. My father-in-law booked a tour and I was a bit skeptical because they called and told us that we would need to reschedule due to a boat break down. We opted for the sunset cruise the following day when given the choice. My skepticism was definitely unfounded. The cruise was the highlight of out entire trip. Capt. JR and Anje were helpful, informative, and fun. They interacted with the entire compliment of passengers and made the whole experience fun. If anyone asks me, I would HIGHLY recommend them!

AlanSias,

Thank you so much for the excellent review. Sunsets here in Southwest Florida are a one-of-a-kind spectacular show every evening. It is so relaxing to watch the sun setting as the water becomes so peaceful and calm.

The crew and I always have so much fun on each of our cruises and I am glad to hear you and your group enjoyed yourselves so much. We will look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Thank you again for the wonderful review,

The Banana Bay Tour Company Team

This was my second tour with JR and Danny. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and ensure you have an enjoyable cruise. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area. Great fun at a very affordable price.

JR and Danny, you can expect to see me again in the near future.

Thank you Carole and Wendy

Carole and Wendy,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. Danny and I are so happy Wendy and you enjoyed yourselves on the cruise. We always have so much fun each time we navigate the boat into the water. You just never know how many dolphins you're going to see and how they will be interacting with each other.

Thank you again for taking the time to write the review,

Jr and Danny, thanks again for the great Dolphin tour. This is our second time using Banana Bay Tour company. Anyone who has not done this tour needs to check it out. JR is a fantastic Captain. We were going to do the home tour but the weather was not cooperating. JR always keeps his passenger safety at the top of his list. He monitors the current weather to make sure everyone enjoys a safe ride. My husband and I will be back again next year. We also have done the Sunset Tour which is awesome as well. Once again JR and Danny hats off to both of you for making our 2 hours not only enjoyable but informative as well. See you in May of 2014.

We took the Dolphin Nature Search cruise. It was very enjoyable for our party who ranged in age from 10 to 75. The crew was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Florida wildlife. The crew went out of their way to make the tour fun for kids. Our 10 year old got to drive the boat!
Thanks to Captain JR, Anya, and Danny for a fun afternoon!!

Traveling Trio19,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review. I am so glad you were able to join us and enjoyed yourselves so much. Your Captain has studied to become a Florida Master Naturalist in Coastal Systems and loves to share information about the wildlife you see while on our cruises.

The crew have so much fun with the children as their special helpers on the boat. It's great to know that they enjoy their special task of locating the dolphins for us.

Thank you again for writing such a great review,

MrsG69 thank you for your great review. The dolphins are so much fun to watch no matter how many times we go out on the water. We just never know what to expect from those beautiful marine mammals! Watching them frolicking in the water jumping and gracefully moving about is just so much fun and I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.
