To the group who cancelled last minute, you missed a treat. Within 5 mins of leaving dock we saw dolphins and a manatee. We then saw more Dolphins , it was a real treat as there were only 6 of us on the boat so it felt like a private tour. There were Dolphins on the route outbound and for... More

When we first got on the pontoon, my first thought was, "for the $30 per person they charge on this thing, you would think he could have a nicer looking pontoon" as it was very weathered and the pvc pipe around it was old, weathered, and blackened. However, the guide was so friendly and full of information, it didn't take... More

We booked a sunset/Dolphin tour. Arrived about 15 minutes before departure due to traffic. Friendly Captain Randall and first mate Lori greeted us. The pontoon boat was nearly half full when we boarded. A safety talk first & then we were on our way. We went south on the inter coastal then along the western waters following the shoreline. We...

I went twice in one week and was a great experience each time! Dolphin watching at it's best and Captain Bruce knows his history and birds!

My husband, my 11 year old twin boys, and myself took a Dolphin Sunset Cruise with Lemon Bay Tours tonight. It was an amazing end to our first family vacation. We had so much fun learning about the history of Englewood and Lemon Bay, learning about the wildlife in the area, and seeing the dolphins. It was definitely worth the... More

Did a Thursday evening sunset cruise with our 4 young children. The captain and his assistant were very knowledgable about the local area. 2 hour ride down to stump pass we saw close to 15 dolphins along with other wildlife. Great music, great narrative along the way and just spectacular views. It was a great activity all ages can enjoy.... More

Captain was very knowledgeable of area and wildlife. You may bring your own food and drinks. Also, bring binoculars, otherwise if you want them, the cost is $3.00 to rent for cruise. Enjoyable cruise, would recommend.
