Fort Myers Dolphin and Shelling Sunset Cruise

    What to Expect
    Make your way to Snook Bight Marina 15 minutes prior to your selected departure time. Check in with your certified Florida Master Naturalist guide, and then board your 38-foot catamaran and head out on your 3-hour cruise.

    As you sail through the water and take in views of the sunset over the ocean, your guide will help you spot dolphins, bird rookies, and other wildlife while providing informative commentary about the local ecosystem.

    Your cruise then stops at a shell island for roughly an hour, where you can learn about local aquatic life such as conchs, sea stars, and urchins while scouring the beach for seashells. Bring your swimsuit if you’d like to hop in the water.

    Return to your ship and finish watching the sunset on your way back to the shore.

    Please note: Although this tour is wheelchair accessible, there are two steps leading to the bathroom and getting on and off the boat from the beach. Those wishing to stay on the boat can relax in the shade and chat with the captain.

    This was a great way to spend the evening. We saw several pods of dolphins, got to shell on a secluded beach and saw an amazing sunset! This is a must do if you are in Ft Myers.
