Dolphin tour
Sep 2021 • Family
10/10 recommend this tour! Captain Jessica was wonderful. We seen dolphins, manatees and the dome house. It was a once in a lifetime experience. 100% worth every dime. (Safe for expecting moms) My daughter was 31 weeks pregnant and had no trouble at all. Enjoyed every moment.

CAPTAIN MARK ROCKS !! 🤘🏻
My fiancé, friends and I had the pleasure of cruising with Captain Mark, of Florida Adventures, on the private dolphin tour on 8/24/21.
Captain Mark, along with his knowledge and great sense of humor, made the cruise an amazing, fun filled experience !
Not only did we get to see and watch many playful dolphins; we also got to cruise around the beautiful waters around Marco Island and see other cool sites and attractions.
If you ever get the chance to book an excursion with Florida Adventures do so. They are professional, fun, accommodating, and affordable.
And if you are fortunate enough to have Captain Mark as your guide I promise you that you will not be disappointed !!
Thanks Captain Mark for a great experience !!
Stay safe on the beautiful waters of Marco Island !
See you again soon !! 😃

Excellent boat tour!
We took a private dolphin tour and had an awesome time! Captain Marco was very knowledgeable, fun and also laid back. We had older people and young kids with us. Great for all the ages. We saw manatees, dolphins, and beautiful birds and ended with a perfect stop off for quick dip and shells. Perfect day!

Dear Beck2422, Thank you for you kind review. Captain Marco rocks! He is able to tailor his tours to the varying age groups and ensures everyone on the tour has a wonderful time. How can he go wrong when he has manatees and dolphins showing off. The shells are an added bonus. Please come back and visit us again soon. All the best wishes, Kathleen

Awesome tour
Jul 2021
The dolphin tour was amazing. Captain Mark was super! Not only did we see tons of dolphins, but he also told us about dolphin info we never could learn anywhere else. He even knew the names of most of the dolphins and their entire families. He told us so much history of Marco Island and the surrounding area We really enjoyed how he interacted with all of us, especially the children (ages 2 1/2 & 5). We highly recommend this tour with Captain Mark!!!!

Beyond expectations
Aug 2021 • Family
Captain Jessica and Colleen are amazing! They found a mom and baby manatee, dolphins, and a brief glimpse of a sea turtle. The dolphin experience was beyond our expectations. They could tell that the dolphins were in a playful mood and got them to follow our boat. They were jumping up out of the water like in a movie. They were also extremely knowledgeable about Marco Island history and sea life. We learned a lot and scored some great shells too. I highly recommend a trip with Jessica and Colleen!!!!

Best part of our Marco Island trip!
Capt Marco & Colleen were amazing!!
They were so knowledgeable about all of the stops and animals and truly excited about what they were teaching us about. Beyond that. Without asking. They encouraged taking so many group photos and such and helped us find amazing shells on the island. Will definitely come back and request them for another tour!

The dolphin tour did not disappoint! Captain Mark was an amazing tour guide with so much history on Marco Island.

Captain Mark made this tour for my wife and I the best part of our entire vacation to Florida! He was knowledgeable of Marco Island, found Dolphins to join us traveling around the islands, and helped us find the most amazing shells to bring home to our kids. He was an absolutely delightful tour guide, and I will be requesting Captain Mark the next time I am able to vacation here again.
