This was a very nice cruise and the captain had a great way of sharing the local history of Ft.Myers as well as his passion for the mangroves and how they are vital to the local ecosystem. The sunset was absolutely stunning!

It was awesome. Had a great time and caught a bunch of fish. The captains even cleaned and put the fish on ice for us. First class operation.

This was a nice cruise up the river but not much to see. Some mangrove trees and homes. we did have a nice sunset, but pricey at $35 per person plus an (optional) tip. Captain was entertaining told some good stories. First mate sold drinks.

My daughter was visiting, so I bought a Groupon for the sunset cruise in Naples. It was an absolute perfect night and VERY reasonably priced. Several dolphins escorted us along the way...it was simply beautiful. We both had a fantastic time!

Nice sunset cruise viewing the mansions of the rich and not so famous. They have a bar on board as well as bathrooms. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

The captain is a great story teller. He weaves a colorful history of the Fort Meyers area with facts and passed down knowledge of several of the prominate leaders. We learned a great deal about the eco system of the waters in Florida. Saw lots...More

The captain and first mate were nice and personable and did their best to narrate a story. But the boat itself was uncomfortable and dull (no bathroom on board gives you an idea), and the tour, itself was a pretty boring--or extremely boring if you...More
