Went on the guided dolphin tour, was really fun to ride the waverider for 90minutes going into the shallow areas around lovers key. Guide managed to find 3 sets of dolphins for us to watch and follow. Surrounding on the trip was amazing, vegetation is beautiful in those areas (as well as the rest of Estero :-) Perfect vacation activity

We had a great time on the dolphin tour. We are a diverse family with kids ranging from 17-7. Chad was great and everyone was begging to do it again. It's for both the adrenaline junkies and sight seers. Thank you for a great morning.

We have friends visiting us & the wife of the couple has special needs that make it necessary for her husband to help her get ready for the day. Therefore the 8:00 & 10:00am times for the Dolphin Tour were not doable. They graciously arranged a later tour so my husband & our friend could enjoy a great tour!! We... More
