We booked this last minute for something to do in Cape Coral, but I'm glad we did! The sunset was indeed beautiful, the Captain was friendly and knowledgeable and we were able to see the dolphins a few times over the course of the ride. All the kids got a chance to "drive" the boat (thrilling for a 3 year... More

This was a delightful and entertaining 1.5 hour cruise to see the sunset, dolphins, pelicans, ibis and eagle. The dolphins were unusually active and kept everyone on their toes trying to figure out where they would appear next. We even saw some great flips! I wouldn't hesitate to do this trip again.

The dolphin tour was not our first choice but we were so glad we took it. We were able to see a herd of dolphins that were very active. The captain stayed in the area so we could take photos of them playing in the gulf. All of the crew members were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. We would highly... More

We didn't really have an agenda planned and took the tour last minute. The tour was great, Capt JR and Stephen were excellent. They gave great details about the area and we found dolphins. The boat was also very nice.

I took the Half Day Ecological Tour with Captain JR and First Mate Steve. The boat was a little chilly on Nov 16, 2016 but thankfully the tour company had called ahead to remind us to bring a light jacket. That is just one example of how this company goes above and beyond to make sure your tour is excellent.... More

Enjoyed the sunset dolphin cruise with my family, including two young ones. Well run, learned lots of interesting dolphin facts, and the Captain landed us into two different groups of very lovely dolphins. Was a terrific family experience.

We expected to see a couple of dolphins but we saw at least 5 families of them and wonderful photos! Captain JR and Anna were informative and personal. In addition, we saw so many birds and 1 manatee. I would heartily recommend this cruise!!!
