We had an amazing time with Captain Jessica!!! She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and great at what she does! We did the 4 hour dolphin and shelling cruise and it was the highlight of our trip to Fort Myers Beach. I've been vacationing in Fort Myers since my childhood, and have never experienced it in such a memorable way as... More

We had a really fun and interesting ride with Captain Jessica DeGraw yesterday for some dolphin watching and shelling near Estero Bay. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and a very capable boat captain. We saw a number of dolphins, the highlight of which were 2 leaping dolphins surfing and playing in our boat wake. We also got to see quite... More

Captain Jessica did a wonderful job with our family of six. She is very knowledgeable about the the area & gave great tips for the rest of our vacation. I would highly recommend booking with her for a full day or half. My kids aging 3-10 loved the trip & have been talking nonstop about the dolphins, rays & shells.... More

Our trip to Florida's Gulf Coast would not be complete without a trip with Captain Jessica! Great time! Great hostess! Can't wait to go shelling again next year! Thank you Captain Jessica!

Captain Jessica took us on a fabulous boat cruise complete with an awesome group of dolphins that followed our boat, jumping out of the water and playing right beside the boat. The cruise exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend. Captain Jessica was a great captain, tour guide and educator!!! We'll be back 🐬

We have just come back from our 4 hour shelling and dolphin tour with Captain Jessica. There isn't really anything to add to the wonderful reviews she already has, she really was as good as everyone says. We too, saw the dolphin and manatee, and found beautiful shells on a beautiful stretch of beach. Jessica is very knowledgeable about the... More

Captain Jessica is wonderful! We were visiting Sanibel Island for a family vacation with kids ages 7,10,12 and looking for a fun activity. The Dolphin and Shelling tour was perfect. We found lots of shells on a beautiful beach, had dolphins jumping alongside the boat and saw a mother and baby manatee. Captain Jessica was an excellent tour guide- she... More

Captain Jessica was great. Very experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and able to customize our trip. Clearly keeps safefy first. Provided a lot of info about the area and wildlife. Was able to get dolphins to choose to interact with us so they were jumping 5-10 feet from the boat simply by how she drove the boat. Much more natural and exciting... More
