Knowledgeable staff, Captain Gale and First mate Phil both answered everyone's questions and pointed out different animal species and were a lot of fun. We took the 1pm tour for 90mins and had dolphins in view or playing with the boat about 50% of the time. Very reasonably priced for the experience and we would recommend this tour for anyone...

Recently we went on a dolphin tour and it was fantastic. We saw all sorts of dolphins and other wildlife. The best part was the knowledge of our Captain. Captain Gale was very pleasant, always smiling and very knowledgeable about the natural surroundings of the area. Thank you Good Times Charters! Gary

Three of us enjoyed a fishing charter with Captain Mike on his comfortable, spacious boat. We fished several locations including the back bay and a few miles off shore. Mike was willing to show us new tricks and share his experience. We had a great day and would highly recommend him. We will definitely travel with Captain Mike and the... More

Captain Gale and first mate Laura made this adventure a great way to experience Estero Bay. We saw many birds, dolphins, and live shells. Our live creatures included a lightning whelk and a 9 arm sea star(or starfish). We saw many osprey in their nests and the mama dolphins with their babies! We stopped for some shelling on Little Hickory... More

Conformable 'platform' boat. Able to hold all passengers easily. The nicest addition different from others we've taken is the addition of a local naturalist who was great at pointing out flora/fauna/birds/fish etc. The Captain was as knowledgeable also. Nice to get off on a sandy [and shell laden] island midway through. The price per hour for boat and 2 professionals... More

My wife, sister, brother-in-law, and I enjoyed the tour. My wife gets seasick easily, but she was fine on this trip. We saw lots of dolphins and several different birds. Captain Gale and Andrea were friendly and patient in answering everyone's questions. They were very knowledgeable. Definitely worth the price.

Whether you like birds, dolphins or just being out on the water this is a must do if you are in or near Fort Myers Beach. Road construction so leave plenty of time to get there though I have to say they called when it was about 5 mins before they left to see if I was still coming and... More
