My wife and I took the day cruise to Useppa Island. The crew were just great, with everyone so helpful and entertaining. With hot and cold drinks and snacks onboard, we had a full and interesting commentary throughout, but it was not overdone - factual and entertaining. We spent a lovely couple of hours or so on the island, toured... More

We turned up without a reservation and got onto the 16:30 sunset cruise. It was only around $30 each for an hour on the water. The vessel was excellent, not too crowded and the staff were excellent, really passionate and obviously enjoy their jobs! We saw a dolphin, a manatee and loads of ospreys. The sunset was absolutely perfect.

My kids (ages 7 and 9) and I went on the "I love shelling cruise" in November and it was fantastic! Pam was super energetic and friendly and knowledgable. She gave us tips on how to find the coolest shells and helped us once we got to the island (a beach only accessible by boat). My kids had a great... More

We sailed with Captiva Cruises on a beautiful sunset cruise out of South Seasons marina with George and Ruben. They were a very professional and knowledgeable crew to say the least. We sailed out into the Gulf along the Captiva coast and were treated to an awesome sunset and very enjoyable sail. This was our second cruise with George and... More

We had a group of 14 on the catamaran cruise and had a blast. The wind was light but we still managed to sail without the motor for a spell. A family of 4 from Europe were with us and were heading home the next day. The captain kept us out an extra 15 minutes to make sure they saw... More

Captiva Cruises does a super job! We decided the night before to sign up for the cruise to Cabbage Key and you do this online. So glad we did. We aren't boaters and have few opportunities to be out on the water so we are easy to please. Think of it as an exciting water taxi ride! The captain did... More

Nice quick trip to Cayo Costo island - mostly wildlife preserve, few "grandfathered" homes. Captain & mate were kind, helpful, informative, a hoot and full of information. They got the dolphins to follow our wake for excellent pictures. They found shells and gave them out, and pointed out the live tiny clams so we knew what to look for. Great... More

The cruise was 90 minutes and the captain made sure we saw plenty of Dolphins and we did. We also timed it well for a sunset which was great. The kids enjoyed it and loved seeing the dolphins. The price was reasonable also. Had a bar and snacks available during the cruise. The lady talking was ok but could have... More

We chose the early evening dolphin cruise because it suited our schedule and budget. It was relaxing and worth it. We did see dolphins in the sound and then rode around to the Gulf side to see homes and other dolphins swimming about. It was a relaxing, enjoyable ride. Worth our time and money.

We had a perfect day on the water going to Usepa Island. The boat was full and the crew member Eric did a splendid job of informing us of what was where, pointing out the dolphins (that were plentiful by the way and so much fun to watch), and what the plan was. They broke us up into 2 groups... More
