Best thing we did in the whole vacation. Honestly, it felt like a once-in-a-lifetime experience seeing all the dolphins leaping out of the water, almost close enough to touch. My 2-year-old was shrieking with glee. Jessica is an awesome captain and really thought of everything....More

We took a 4.5 hour tour with Captain Jessica. She was very knowledgeable and made the tour personalized, fun, comfortable and safe. The dolphin spotting was awesome! I hope to come back and would highly recommend to others.

I can't imagine a better way to spend 4 1/2 hours in the Fort Myers area. A trip to a secluded beach, dolphins "body surfing" in the boat's wake in two different places, a great stop at a tiki bar for a snack and a...More
