“You MUST go!!! Excellent in every way!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I went on the Calusa Queen on my birthday Nov.2nd with 3 of my girlfriends. We are all teachers and learned a lot about Florida and nature. It was the perfect evening to relax and enjoy all that SW Florida has to offer. We saw a beautiful sunset, manatees and dolphins up close! The boat captain and skipper were friendly, and entertaining. I suggest that you gather your friends and get aboard...you won't regret it!

“Fun!!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Captain Will and his wife Lisa aka "Bunny" were a great team. We had a great time on board. They showed us manatees in the marina before going out into the estuary and showing us a beautiful sunset. The great evening ended with a sing a long to Dean Martin and the Little River Band just as the dolphins escorted us back to the harbor. It was a memorable way to end our week in Florida. Take the time and enjoy an evening with them. It's great energy on board and definitely worth it!
