Family went to Fort Myers Beach for Christmas. Went on a 1.5 hour dolphin tour with Captain Scott. It was great! Saw lots of dolphins, got great information about the bay, dolphins, and the area in general. We even were late getting back because Captain Scott was trying to get the dolphins follow us in the wake....

Captain Scott was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable about the Estero Bay Area. We saw may Dolphins on our tour and he even had a few "chasing the boat". 3 generations thought the dolphin tour was awesome and possibly the highlight of our Fort Myers trip.

Stayed with a pod of dolphins for a long while as they were busy catching their breakfast fish. Captain Scott very interested in making sure everyone had a good view, a comfortable ride, and a good time. Mixed it all in with local and naturalist information. Would recommend to anyone wishing an affordable and enjoyable way to get to know... More

Last night we took the sunset cruise. The captain (Scott) did a nice job taking us all through the bay side looking for dolphins. A few were spotted, but his information about the islands in the bay and the nature there was great. For the sunset, we headed under the bridge to the Gulf. It was a great view. The... More

Had a great time. Capt. Justin was great. Very informative. It was a beautiful day to be on the bay. We saw several dolphins and the Capt. got them to play in the waves. Very much worth the price.

The Estero Bay Express II provided our family with a fun and enjoyable afternoon on the water dolphin watching. Captain Scott was very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable about the local marine life. It was a pleasure to have him as our Captain for the afternoon! Would highly recommended to anyone wanting to see dolphins up close in their natural habitat;... More

We did the dolphin excursion on December 6. Captain Scott was great. A storm was coming through later that day so we were worried we might not get to see any dolphins. But Captain Scott did not disappoint us. We found a spot where there were several dolphins swimming along side of us. My two girls (ages 5 & 2)... More

We did the dolphin excursion on December 3rd. Captain Justin was fantastic he brought enthusiasm and corny jokes. It was low tide when we went out so spotting the dolphins was a bit difficult but we eventually got close to one and he made us all happy. For the price definitely worth an 1 and a half hour investment of... More

My boyfriend and I reserved a last minute sunset tour. We were able to book it the same day over the phone. It was absolutely beautiful... there was not one cloud in the sky, the water was calm.
