I had family visiting from Georgia and I had decided to take them on the 3 hour tour with Good Time Charter and Tours. What an excellent decision. It was $35.00 per person and the money was well spent. Captain Gale was welcoming from the moment we stepped aboard. His knowledge of the area is unsurpassed. He was a wonderful guide, pointing out all of the different birds and trees and telling stories of each one. He answered every question we had. We saw dolphins, manatees and then we went shelling on a little beach. Captain Gale also knew all of the sea shells and sea life we had found. He gave wonderful tips on where to eat, which sections of the beach were best to enjoy and, he gave perfect directions on how to reach these destinations. It was a wonderful and relaxing 3 hours and, I would certainly do the tour again as well as try the other tours the company offers. Thank You Captain Gale for a most memorable time.

We took our 3 grown children and their significant others on a family vacation to Ft Myers Beach, they wanted to see the dolphins so we chose the sunset tour and it exceeded our expectations. Capt Gale was very knowledgable and very friendly. I would highly recommend taking this inexpensive boat ride.

Our family of 5 went on the sunset dolphin tour with Capt Gale & it was outstanding. $20 is an unbelieveable price for an 1.5 hour tour, others charge much more. I would take this tour again to see the dolphins play in the boat's wake & the sunset was beautiful. The best $20 you can spend!

My sister and I were spending a week on the gulf just to relax. We found a brochure for Good Time Charter's in the hotel. They offered Dolphin and Wildlife cruises. We choose the Sunset cruise. It was only $20 per person and Captain Gale was great!! So knowledgeable and friendly and answered all of our questions. We saw lots of Dolphin and birds. Captain Gale said he has seen dolphin on all of his cruises. What a wonderful end to a nice trip.

I went on the sunset cruise with my family on Wednesday evening July 17th. 2013 We left that evening at 7:15 with Captain Gale. He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the Bay area of Fort Myers Beach, Fl. We were able to see several dolphins during our trip and even had two of them play in boats waves for several minutes chasing after the boat doing several jumps out of the water over one another showing off. Excellent photo opportunity but you got to be quick. Best to record your trip from the rear of the ship. I was able to have the last seat at the rear and turned out to be the best for filming and photos. So don't run for the front of the boat if you want the best experience sit in the back. Run for the last seat in the back it is totally worth it. We cruised down the bay all the way to the end of Fort Myers Beach just past Lovers Key at which time Captain Gale stops the boat and positions it for the photo shots of the most beautiful sunset. Don't worry if your in the back as I said he positions the boat so everyone gets that perfect sunset photo so you don't have to climb over people to get a photo. Plus if you are in that last seat you may be lucky enough to video the sunset as you head back to the marina along with some dolphins playing in bay behind you as the sun sets. We returned to the marina around 9:00 that night. So instead of wasting hundreds of dollars on air boat tours then having that robbed feeling you return to your hotel room. Choose Good Time Charters it will be the best $20 you will ever spend while in Fort Myers Beach.
