Fort Myers Coastal Sealife Dolphin and Shelling Cruise
From US$ 42.40
Overview
See dolphins and other typical Florida marine life during a 3-hour cruise from Fort Meyers. The marine biologist and naturalist guides lead a sightseeing cruise to a secluded shelling beach that can only be reached by boat, passing by dolphins and bird rookeries along the way. Includes time for swimming and lounging at the pristine beach on a small island.
What to Expect
Make your own way to Snook Bight Marina to board the boat Phoenix for your cruise.

Get comfortable as you set out on your sightseeing cruise, riding on the sturdy 38-foot (11.5-meter) boat with shade structure and small restroom. The boat is handicap accessible with a 31-inch (.75-meter) opening gate and two steps to reach the beach or bathroom.

Expect to encounter dolphins and smaller critters such as sea stars, conchs, urchins, and more. If you're lucky, you might spot a manatee on the way to the shelling island.

Dress for the beach and bring your swim gear if you want to cool off. Drinks and snacks are available for purchase before your departure, and you can bring your own small cooler aboard.

Best day of vacation

The boat ride was just the right length out to do shelling then back. Our 5 year old had a blast. Christina was awesome and very knowledgeable. Would love to go again.
