31' Eastern Boat, holds 13 passengers for an intimate lunch or sunset cruise. While traveling through the Boca Bayou and Boca Grande Isles our captains will point out different homes and businesses of interest, along with any wildlife we see. Usually dolphins jump in our wake, so make sure you bring a camera. Some of our normal destinations include Cabbage Key, Useppa, and Captiva islands. We also do private tours upon request.

Boat cruise was excellent Captain and his crew were amazing. Saw lots of dolphins. Really enjoyed the boat ride. Only disappointing thing was, when we got off the boat, no one seemed to know where to go to get to downtown area or beach etc. We spent 10 minutes trying to ask people and find a map. It would have... More

A group of friends took a trip this week and were in awe of the beauty of Useppa. As indicated by many reviewers, seeing the dolphins play & jump right behind the boat was amazing. On our videos you can hear how excited we all were at that sight. I wish we could have had more time to walk around... More

The trip was changed last minute due to power outage on Useppa so went to Cabbage Key instead. Dolphin followed the boat and wake surfed...quite a treat...so close to the boat! Lunch at Cabbage Key was yummy...fresh stone crab claws..shrimp...a delicious burger. We ate at the bar and the bartender was very helpful. Made for a very enjoyable day.

We have used this boat tour twice. Last year we did the sunset cruise and this year the Cabbage Key/Useppa tour. Both trips were EXCELLENT! Kyle and Devon are superb captains and tour guides. The trip was great fun. They are "dolphin whisperers". Dolphins were jumping enthusiastically behind our boat for miles. Highly recommend Boca Boat Cruises!

Yet another fantastic trip on the Katara. My first review of Boca Boat Cruises was proudly the first on TripAdvisor back in 2012 and although we have returned every year since, the Katara never fails to attract beautiful playful dolphins. This is not one of those heavily populated boats that chugs around spotting the odd dolphin fin or tail, but... More

Capt Kyle expertly guided us thru Charlotte Harbor to Cabbage Key for lunch at the inn. Have never seen so many dolphins at once! I think we counted 14 one time playing in the wake of our boat. The inn itself is a lot of fun to see, but this trip was all about the journey. On the way back,... More

Capt. Scott took us on a tour of a lifetime! A family of Dolphins followed us to Cabbage Key, then back again....jumping and flipping in complete synchronization. An incredible experience in the oceanic wild! A MUST SEE!!!!

Thank your taking the time to write this review. We all agree that seeing the dolphins at play is an incredible experience .New customers expect to see them way off in the distance and are so delighted when they see them so close to the boat. Come see us again and again! More

We had an amazing trip to Useppa. On the way we saw dolphins playing in our wake, an Osprey nest with babies, manatees, and beautiful homes! We had a delicious meal on the island at the Collier Inn. We felt like one of the 'rich and famous'. :o).
