Saw numerous dolphins. One dolphin was probably only 2 weeks old. The captain was very informative, professional and fun. The sunset was beautiful. Very reasonable priced. Would highly recommend any of their cruises. I have been on 4 and always pleased. Take my company when they visit.

My daughter and I went on this dolphin tour. Capt Scott was awesome! I would highly recommend this tour. The pontoon boat was a very comfortable and smooth ride. We saw dolphins and many types of birds.

Scott was our captain, he was awesome! He had a good sense of humor and explained the buildings and other places around us. I loved that he had the kids drive the boat for a few minutes that was cool. Also the dolphins we saw were very playful and came right up to the boat. It was a great experience... More

We had wanted to take a dolphin tour on our family vacation to Florida and the price offered by Estero Bay Express was one of the best we had found for a 90 min trip. We had two young children (2 and 4 yrs) and the staff did a great job pointing out not only the dolphins but other wildlife... More

I would highly recommend this tour. We took our young children (aged 3 & 4) with us and we all really enjoyed this tour and saw so many dolphins. Captain Scott and Liz were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Great afternoon!!

Capt Justin made this a remarkable experience. His love for the environment came through loud and clear. We saw lots of dolphins and birds and the trip was well worth the cost. This was our second time on this cruise and we plan to do it every visit we make to Fort Myers!

Rating Average, as the stack chairs aboard the boat were very uncomfortable. Could not lean back. I don't anyone who can sit in a chair and not lean back for a few hours?? Makes you walk around to stretch and of course, the bow of the boat was packed with people. As far as the Dolphin sitings, they were right... More

Captain Scott and Lisa were great, tried really hard took extra time to make sure we see the Dolphins in the bay. I just wish the boat would take us out of the bay, were the Dolphin actually are wild and follow the boats.

I was looking for a tour for my children & my parents with one clear goal - to see dolphins. I called around and there were some that were twice the price of this one, for I'm not sure exactly what reason. This tour was PERFECT - VERY laid back, small boat (20 people tops), VERY friendly captains (allowed the... More
