This tour is very laid back. The Captain shares interesting facts about the area and wildlife. There is plenty of time to enjoy Lemon Bay and you are not rushed if/when you see dolphins. We saw many! The relaxed atmosphere is enjoyable. Snacks and beverages...More

I am embarrassed to admit that it took visiting family to get me on this tour! I've taken other tours since moving to SW Florida in 2014, and barely glimpsed a fin, but this tour -- which hangs out for a while near the Englewood...More

Sorry you were disappointed with what you saw! Unfortunately, we can not make the wildlife appear on cue and some days are better than others! We do provide water and binoculars to our visitors that forget their own for a very reasonable price. Thank you...More

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We were lucky enough to see a couple of dolphins and a manatee. Also a mention for the very friendly and informative Capt. 👍🏼

We took the sunset cruise as a family of four and had a great time. You could leave all your stresses at home as you watch the sunset and the clouds changing colour. The captain was very informative and friendly. Would highly recommend.

We have experienced the larger boat tours out of Sarasota, but wanted something closer to us, so we headed down to Englewood. The boat fits about 30 guests and there is bench seating all around. There are snacks, water and soda available at very affordable...More

I don't remember exactly how much. I think it was around $30/per and it was a sunset tour. It was about 3 hours or so. Very nice you can bring your own drinks on board ( no glass) captain was great! Worth the trip
