Captain Dale and Andrea were great. Saw lots of dolphins, a few manatee, and some birds. Dale knew how to get the dolphins to come play and jump in the wake of the boat. Awesome viewing. Very reasonable price for an hour and half ride.

My friends and I (10 people) went on the sunset cruise. We were not disappointed, as the dolphins put on quite a show right next to our boat (see pictures). Steve and Andrea were fun and knowledgeable. The manatees had moved to warmer waters so did not see them, but saw many birds and learned about them. The sun was... More

I have to say that this was well worth $20. Estero Bay is so beautiful and full of wild life... The Captain of the boat was great and the girl as well. They were both very informative of the different birds. Great sense of humor

My husband, three sons and I took the shelling and wildlife tour. It was amazing to see the dolphins playing right near the boat! The beach we were brought to for shelling was gorgeous! The boat was comfortable and the captain was friendly. We would definitely do it again!!!

We had a wonderful time with Captain Dale and naturalist Phil. They made a beautiful ride fun and informative. We were lucky enough to see several dolphins, many water-birds and a gorgeous sunset. Phil was very helpful in identifying various birds, which was great for us, as we are new to bird-watching. He was very patient, answering our many questions--there's... More
