Our third time dolphin cruising with Carmen on Stars and Stripes. Each better than the last. He is very knowledgeable about dolphin behaviors and does an excellent job at finding some for us. Then he gets them to play and they swim and jump in...More

Carmen showed us why he captains the Stars and Stripes boat. He took us the ride of a lifetime. His knowledge of the water took us to the home of the porpoises. The animals chased our boat 🚣 at least 3 or 4 times. I...More

We visit the marina to dine at Gramma Dot's and to take the Thriller boat ride. Lovely views. Great place to see boats.

We rented a 21' center console speedboat for the day. The boat was very spartan, but worked fine. We are avid boaters and had a great time being on the water. Shelling was excellent, lunch was fun, and having the dolphins swim in our wake...More

This small marina has a great location but is owned by the rudest, most obnoxious man, Miton Ireland. We rented a boat slip there and had several disturbing experiences. We moved our boat from Naples to Sanibel because we moved there and wanted out boat...More

At least in the area of eastern and western Gulf Drive. Hoped to find crystal blue wares but we were totally disappointed to find waters not very different from the Mediterranean Sea around Rome. All said. Check the local news before booking in this area!

This picturesque small marina is located down a side street just off Periwinkle Way. It is well protected, in a canal off the open ocean. There are a number of boat slips, a marina shop and service operation, and yacht sales. There is also a...More
