“Best time spent in a boat!”
Review of Sanibel Thriller

Sanibel Thriller
Ranked #2 of 28 Tours in Sanibel Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We always saw the Sanibel Thriller driving around the island with dolphins jumping in the waves.. So, we finally decided to do it. It was so exciting. There were so many dolphins jumping and playing in the waves behind the boat. The narration about the island and the dolphins was so informative. Try it. You will absolutely love it.

Love all the shops on the island but my favorite shop is Something Shiny. Very unique jewelry, one of a kind pendants. Was on vacation 2 years ago and purchased a necklace at this store. Went back to buy another pendant on this trip. Owner and staff are very friendly and helpful.

Loved the tour around Sanibel, complete with island history and dolphins jumping in the wake of the speedboat. Tip generously; tour guide and captain are fantastic.

This lived up to the name. Beautiful tour of the coastline of Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Narrated by the captains first mate. Seats roughly 35 people and the cruises (2 tours per day, I believe) sell out fast and frequently so book a day or two in advance. Seating is first come first seated, so if you want the back of the boat be there EARLY! Also wear clothes that will dry quickly or swim wear as you will get. We LOVED the opportunity to see MANY pods of dolphins following the boat several times during our tour. A nice touch also, the first mate took photos of the guests, using their own photo devices. The tours are roughly 2 hours round trip.
We look forward to doing this again during our next trip.

Decided to try this boat trip and although it is a bit expensive it was definitely worth it!! Unfortunately the gulf was rough that day, but we saw great sights of Sanibel and Captiva from the water which we had never seen in all our years of visiting (30). Good narration from the guide but the highlight was definitely the several pods of jumping dolphin we were able to enjoy behind the boat. AWESOME!! Little bit of a tacky plea for tips from the staff at the end, but overall a great experience!!
