Highly recommended for everyone, especially families with children, if you are in the area. The tour is absolutely worth it. Captain Justin was very knowledgeable and fun, and all the kids got to be "captain" for a few minutes each, which they adored.

Great Captain (Jason) & plenty of great photo opportunities. We saw multiple Dolphins within 20 ft of the boat. It's also nice to put your camera down and just enjoy your surroundings. I wwould absolutely do it again.

Certainly lived up to the billing as a dolphin tour. Saw a manatee in the first few minutes and spent the rest of the hour and twenty minutes among a bunch of dolphin. Justin was our tour guide and he was great. Highly recommend.

We only saw one dolphin, which was a bummer, but it came pretty close to the boat so the view was great. Saw a couple manatees from a far. Jay mentioned... More

Captain Scott took us for a wonderful tour of Estero Bay on the way to the Gulf to see the beautiful sunset. We saw some dolphins in the distance. Captain Scott explained about things in the water & on the shore as we passed by them. The pontoon boat was very comfortable. This was our second tour in a year... More

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!
