I went with a group from Valencia Lakes on a trip to Sanibel which included a tour by Captiva Cruises. We had a wonderful tour filled with lots of information about the area and included a short visit from a couple of dolphins.

In mid-May, we took the 4 PM Dolphin Watch & Wildlife Adventure Cruise, departing from the South Seas Marina. Our hope was to see manatees and dolphins. After boarding the Lady Chadwick, we immediately saw manatees near the berth--so cool! After leaving the marina, dolphins...More

On our way to Sanibel area today - family of four - two "kids" ages 21 & 23. Trying to decide between the Useppa cruise or the Caya Costa for shelling. Any recommendations. Also - the full day at Caya Costa or half day? Thanks!

How long did you actually have to look for shells on the island? Did the cruise to the island take up most of the 3 hours?
