Fort Myers Coastal Sealife Dolphin and Shelling Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to Snook Bight Marina to board the boat Phoenix for your cruise.
    Get comfortable as you set out on your sightseeing cruise, riding on the sturdy 38-foot (11.5-meter) boat with shade structure and small restroom. The boat is handicap accessible with a 31-inch (.75-meter) opening gate and two steps to reach the beach or bathroom.
    Expect to encounter dolphins and smaller critters such as sea stars, conchs, urchins, and more. If you're lucky, you might spot a manatee on the way to the shelling island.
    Dress for the beach and bring your swim gear if you want to cool off. Drinks and snacks are available for purchase before your departure, and you can bring your own small cooler aboard.
