Our captain Jason and first mate (I forgot her name, but we liked her!) did a great job for us. We were on a moderately full boat on a Friday night, for a 1-1/2 hour Sunset Cruise. I had asked before signing up, what the chances were of seeing dolphins, and they told me that chances were very good. As... More

This cruise on a pontoon boat was an enjoyable and relaxing cruise around the bays of Fort Myers Beach. Our captain and tour guide was very friendly, personable, and knowledgable. Although we didn't see too many dolphins on our particular outing, our captain made it interesting nonetheless. We would love to go again the next time we're in Fort Myers... More

The experience was delightful. Our capable captain and mate were excellent naturalists who kept us entertained as well as showing all the interesting sights. We saw numerous birds, manatee and shoreline decor. The relaxed pace allowed time for lots of photography. The marina was great too!

Better than we imagined...Capt Scott was very personable and knowledgable about the local waters and wildlife. Learned about birds, fish, and saw lots of dolphins, including a mom and baby. Then saw a spectacular sunset!

We took the morning dolphin tour with Captain Scott. The whole experience was great as we took the whole family, grandma, my wife, and 3 kids, ages 5, 3, and 1.5. We got to see dolphins right away, very close to the boat. We saw a mom and a baby as well. We got to see many birds, including one... More

We had a great time visiting with our fellow 'sailors' and captain. Enjoyed the cruising to find the playful dolphins and had a great time watching the sun set. Some folks brought their drinks and appetizers but the ride may be a bit bumpy to really enjoy drinks on board. Something in bottles or sippy cups would be appropriate. There... More
