Coastal Lagoon Tours provided some incredible animal views. We had barely left the docks when we spotted two dolphins swimming and they playfully followed the boat for a bit and got some great pictures! This was our closest experience with the wildlife. We did see a manatee and a few more dolphins along with the pelicans and other birds. A... More

We were able to see lots of dolphins, manatees and other wildlife. Captain Quinn was great, very informative. We were able to get some great shells. Would definitely go again and recommend this.

For the second year running we did a 2 hour tour with Captain Quinn. It's a beautiful way to see the Banana River and more importantly, to see the dolphins and manatees in their natural habitat. Captain Quinn is a great host and is great with kids. Our 5 year old son loved catching a fish (&when he was 4... More

After seeing reviews on Trip Advisor & wanting to do something a bit different to the usual tourist stuff with my children on our Orlando holiday I contacted Captain Quinn to arrange a tour. This was one of the best things we did on the holiday & all 5 of us were totally blown away with the tour. Captain Quinn... More

Beautiful views. Dolphin and manitee sightings. Captain Quinn was very informative and inviting. I liked that he didn't "harass" the wildlife and we enjoyed seeing them in their natural behaviors. He also didn't mind straying from our set course in order to help us enjoy our wildlife viewings! Went with 4 other adult family members... highly recommend this tour! Would... More

My wife found out about Captain Quinn's Coastal Lagoon Tour when she was hoping to see some manatees. We had a great time and highly recommend this if you are interested in a peaceful tour of the Banana River estuary. This is a rather low key operation. Reservations are made by phone with the Captain himself. You meet in the... More

After a few days of doing the Disney thing, my wife and I decided to take our 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son on a dolphin sighting ride. We did some research, called Capt Quinn and set a reservation. Definitely a high point in our vacation. We had a beautiful day, saw lots of dolphins and manatees... More

My wife and I spent 3 days in Cocoa Beach prior to our cruise. We had never been to the area and found Captain Quinn's ad in the resort directory. We called the number and spoke with Captain Quinn directly (no answering machine) which was nice. He offers an informative 2 hour tour of the area's river and canal system.... More

Captain Quinn filled his pamphlets promise to a T of everything! We have already recommended him to numerous others as well. We have enjoyed the entire 2 hours and so did our college kids. It's hard to find something to do that they all enjoy but this your fit the bill! He gets a A+ from our family!

We had a great time with Captain Quinn on the Banana River. We saw dolphins, manatees, and many interesting birds. A side trip to a quiet island for shell collecting was great, and our son even caught a fish. Quinn was a great host- fantastic at spotting wildlife that we would never have seen. Comfortable boat, drinks provided. Great guy,... More
