My husband, three sons and I took the shelling and wildlife tour. It was amazing to see the dolphins playing right near the boat! The beach we were brought to for shelling was gorgeous! The boat was comfortable and the captain was friendly. We would definitely do it again!!!

We had a wonderful time with Captain Dale and naturalist Phil. They made a beautiful ride fun and informative. We were lucky enough to see several dolphins, many water-birds and a gorgeous sunset. Phil was very helpful in identifying various birds, which was great for us, as we are new to bird-watching. He was very patient, answering our many questions--there's... More

My sister and I took this trip and were not disappointed at all with customer service and the amount of wildlife we saw and the dolphins were in abundance. We liked it so much we took it a second time. Laura and Gale were amazing.

The crew are exceptional, knowledgeable and friendly they went out of their way to make our group of 22 comfortable as they took us to Mound Key in Estero Bay, stopping to point out dolphins, manatees and various birds of interest to our people.

Very good tour on a great boat. We saw dolphins and all kinds of birds. The special part was when the driver told us to all go to the back of the boat and he sped up and a dolphin kept jumping in the boat's wake! Had a great time at a great price!

We were in Fort Myers Beach for the second time in six months. We decided to try the Dolphin, Shelling Tour again. We were afraid that it would not be as good as the first time and that we would be disappointed, but it was wonderful! We had a different captain this time, Captain Steve! He was fantastic! Our first... More
