Captain Jack was great at engaging the dolphins on the way out to and back from Caya Costa. The boat was really nice, and all the equipment he brought made for a very fun trip. The sea jets were great for snorkeling. He was very knowledgeable of the area also.

Dolphin watching, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking in the prettiest area off Sanibel. A remarkable day and a super guide. Thanks Captain Mike and hello again Captain Jack.
We will return! Our whole family recommends this tour highly.

I'll be honest; when we got back from our cruise I said, "No way that was three hours!" But it was, in fact, it was three-and-a-half hours. The trip was so beautiful and so fun that the time just flew by.

The island was beautiful. Captain Jack was pleasant, helpful and informative. He even found us some dolphins, which swam playfully in our wake on the way back.

What a beautiful day we had cruising with the family. This was our first trip to the island and I am so glad that we decided to take this 4 hr. boat tour. We had our 22 yr old, his fiance, and two twelve yr old little girls. Mike took us to a beautiful spot on the gulf where the dolphins literally swam around us the entire day while we kayaked and paddle boarded. We have never seen so many dolphins within such proximity. Mike had everything set up for us on the beach when we arrived....chairs, umbrella, water, a cooler for us to put our stuff on. It was truly a beautiful day!

We've been coming to Sanibel since 2007, and have gone on other cruises, but this was by far the best. It had it all - dolphins, shelling and water sports. Our family of mom and dad and four teens loved the kayaks and paddleboarding. Snorkeling was great and the seadoos were a big hit. Shelling here was unbelievable. Captain Mike took great care of us and on the way back, he knew just where to go and how to get the dolphins to put on a show for us. We called him the dolphin whisperer! We will make it a point to do this cruise again on future visits!
