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

This excursion was a surprise for my husband. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. We wanted to see wildlife in its natural habitat. The crew was very professional and friendly. On the ship, you can get a drink and light snacks. & enjoy Captiva Island from the water as well as Pine Island and Sanibel. The captain & crew are... More

We were very excited for our early morning cruise to Usepa Island. The weather was ideal. While on-board, crew member,Eric,pointed out landmarks and shared local lore. He was great. Upon approaching Usepa, our problems began. Firstly, they broke us up into 2 groups- one to eat first the other to visit the island museum first.That was understandable as the island... More

Best to leave at least 15 minutes to go through the gates at Andy Rosse Lane and drive to the car park for the cruise. Everything seemed well supervised, organised and the cruise itself was fun. The crew made an effort both outbound and back to find some dolphins, so have your camera ready! We disembarked at Useppa and loved... More

Guides great! Not only fun, but educational also! Three hours of guided shelling on costa caya for $40 dollars per person! Highly recommended!

It started in the Marina office. We were greeted by a man who was speaking flawless French to the couple ahead of us in line. He then switched effortlessly over to Spanish, and then to English. For the record, his Italian and German were equally beautiful. He booked our day trip to the Cayo Costa State Park, and directed us... More

Went on the Cabbage Key cruise on Thanksgiving Day. Was a great trip with dolphins chasing alongside the boat, and good food at the Cabbage Key Inn. The crew does an excellent job. Prices are very reasonable..Will go again!

Took this cruise on our 25th anniversary and it was beautiful to see the sunset at the tip of northern Captiva! Worth every penny and then some. Saw a few dolphins but hadn't really gone for the dolphins. Saw nesting eagles as well. The sunset was beautiful and that was what we were hoping for!

First, we had perfect weather for this trip which can usually be expected in this part of the country, but we arrived at ten at McCarthy Marina, a historic sight in itself, as you will learn in the narrative Richard charmingly gives on the boat. We learned so much about the history of the area and the famous people who... More
