Awesome sunset cruise. Capt Justin was entertaining, knowledgeable and witty. First Mate, Debbie, was a sweetheart. It was so cool to have the dolphin play right alongside the boat. First class operation, well worth the price. Great sunset!

Justin was a great tour guide- both comical and knowledgeable. We saw a manatee right off the bat and explored some new territory to see plenty of dolphins. Well worth the price!

Great time on the dolphin cruise. Captain Jay knows a lot about dolphins! This was certainly worth the price of admission.

All ages in our group enjoyed this ride. We did the 1pm-2:30 ride with Captain Justin and First Mate Kathy. Captain Justin was fun, knowledgeable, funny, and very pleasant. He gave just enough info and answered questions and encouraged us to help spot the dolphins and other wildlife, and then he would go near it for us. He was very... More

Rode with Captain Justin - what a witty yet knowledgeable guide he is! We saw so many dolphins (and pairs, and a family of 5!), and manatees, and birdlife, it was a non-stop WOW afternoon. We have previously done the sunset cruise as well and highly recommend both day and sunset - as they are structured differently and you learn... More

Captain Jay was wonderful! He knew right where to find the dolphins and even got them to play in the wake of our boat! Our 3 daughters loved every minute of it! The sunset was amazing! Definitely a must do if you are in the Fort Myers Beach area! Very reasonably priced and easy to get to.

We booked the Dolphin Tour hoping our young granddaughter would get to see dolphins and weren't disappointed. We saw countless dolphins almost the whole hour and a half and she got to wear the Captain's hat and 'drive' the boat as well. A great tour; we highly recommend it! Take lots of water with you and sunscreen!

Captain Jay was fantastic, funny and full of information. He found lots of dolphins and had them dance in our wake. We saw over 15 dolphins up close and jumping out of the water putting on a show. They were close enough to the boat that we could almost touch them! We also saw lots of other wildlife. We saw... More
