“Excellent sunset and tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

The Calusa Queen offers an outstanding opportunity to see Florida sea life and native birds in addition to a wonderful sunset. Both Captain Will and his first mate, Bunny, provide an excellent narrative of what is going on around you during the entire cruise. You have the opportunity to see manatees, dolphins, native birds and of course the fabulous Florida sunset. Reservations are a must since this appears to be a very popular option for a tour of Florida’s water ways, native birds, fish and the sunset.

“Sunset harbor and bird/nature cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

This pontoon cruise vessel seats about 20 or so people. For our cruise it was booked, but comfortable and everyone had a great view. The captain was interesting as he explained the wildlife we saw on the inland harbor portion of the tour. Then we went out into the harbor. It was windy but the captain passed out fluffy blankets to keep the chill off. We enjoyed a lovley sunset and headed back in. It was well priced, enjoyable and relaxing. A great way to see the area and impress out of town guests. We had family with us ranging fom age 76 to age 5, everyone enjoyed the cruise. Best of all we could bring a bottle of wine to enjoy!

“Best view of Dolphins I've ever had!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife, daughter and I took the day cruise to Cabbage Key. On the way there and back we were blessed to have to company of up to 5 dolphins swimming very close to this low to the water boat!! Fantastic! Best of all, Captain Will stopped the boat so we could really enjoy watching these beautiful creatures! We will definitely never forget this cruise. Priceless!!!!

“Inexpensive tour of marina and sunset”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

The price is totally right, but of the hour and a half tour (which started late), 1/3 of it was spent looking around the Burnt Store Marina. Interesting wildlife (mostly birds) in the area. The boat is a little smaller than expected, though comfortable, but a little choppy out in the bay. Very friendly staff and they let you bring your own alcohol.
