My husband, son and I had the pleasure of taking the Dolphin and Wildlife Cruise on January 31st. Captain Steve and Andrea were fantastic, giving us so much information as we toured. It was especially nice to see manatees, which we did not expect! I can't thank them enough for all the knowledge they shared! We are so glad that... More

My Wife and I took my 92 year old Mother in law out to see the sights from the water and hopefully see some Dolphin. Captain Jessica did an excellent job explaining where we were and what we were seeing. She is very knowledgeable on the area, plants and wildlife. She also has a great boat for this type of... More

Took two of my granddaughters on this trip yesterday. Booked online and received a call from Jessica a few days before departure. She filled me in on everything we need, asked me about the ages of the kids and if we had any special requests. Very professional and friendly and I knew we would be in good hands. When we... More

Captain Jessica was very professional, fun, informational, safe and very kind. There were 6 gals and we all had a fabulous time shelling, watching the dolphins in the wake of the boat, birding, learning about the ecosystem, boating on the gulf and bay side. You will not be disappointed if you take a fun boat ride with Jessica. This is... More

Captain Jessica is wonderful! We spend three hours out with her and had many, many close dolphin sightings plus fantastic birding (including the anhingas I specifically requested!). Lots of good information - about dolphins, birds, mangroves, history of the area - provided by Jessica, including restaurant suggestions. This was a lovely experience. The boat is very comfortable.

Jessica was a fantastic tour guide and great captain. We had several people on board interested in knowing about local wild life and the rest of us just wanted to take in the scenery. Jessica made sure that we all got what we were looking for. We came upon several dolphins hunting fish. As if by magic, Jessica led them... More

What an awesome time. Captain Jessica was great and we had more Dolphins jumping with us than I've ever seen before...2 pods with at least 3-4 in each playing in our wake for at least 30 minutes. Shelling was great; but dolphins were the highlight. If you want a great time that is informative, fun and relaxing...give Captain Jessica a... More

If you are looking for a great time shelling and seeing Dolphins, Captain Jessica is who you must call. I booked our adventure months in advance and told Captain Jessica what I wanted to accomplish: Shells, Shells, and more Shells. Dolphins, ok, but lots of Shells! Captain Jessica checked the tides, laid in our course, and took us to the... More

Capt. Jessica is very knowledgeable, professional, great with the kids, and keeps her boat very clean! She provided snacks, drinks, and bags for our shells. The shelling was amazing! I highly recommend taking one of these cruises!

My family enjoyed a dolphin cruise with Captain Jessica and had such an amazing experience. My parents who are locals in Fort Myers joined us and we were all impressed with her knowledge of the history and wildlife, and her ability to get the dolphins to "show off" for us. It was a great, relaxing, and memorable time and we... More
