Other than sitting on the beach for a week, this was the highlight of our trip. Saw 3 Manatees and got video of dolphins right next to the boat. The boat is covered for those wanting to stay out of the direct sun. Well worth the money. They could probably charge double and still fill the seats. Great value for a 90 min. cruise.
We had a wonderful time on our cruise! We saw Dolphins, a Manatee and lots of Pelicans and Egrets. Captain Steve was friendly and knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area. Our kids aged 13-5 were thrilled to see all the wildlife, especially the dolphins!! I highly recommend this cruise!
An excellent tour! We loved the rookery and racing with the dolphins. Would do again!
The dolphins we saw were fantastic. I couldn't believe they stayed with our boat that long, swimming and jumping through the wake of the boat. Great stuff!!
Very educational and entertaining excursion. Plenty of dolphins to see as well as birds nestled in the mangroves. Veronica as well as the Captain were awesome.
Pleasant knowledgeable guides. A lovely way to spend an hour or two. Really enjoyed. Word of advice...they do allow you to bring a cooler with your own beverages. I highly recommend doing so as the sun can get warm but the boat is covered, so it isn't too bad. Just gets warm and a cool beverage is always welcome!
This was a great trip! It was very informative and we saw dolphins and a shark!
Tour guides were very knowledgeable - made a great effort to ensure we had a wonderful outing!
Captain Phil and Captain Mike could not have been kinder, more professional, or more knowledgeable. This was my family's first dolphin and wildlife tour. Both my kids ages 17 and 15 were interested and involved the entire time. We saw plenty of dolphins too - and the bird island was so interesting. I highly recommend this tour. The cost is so very worth it!
We had a GREAT day on the boat. We saw lots of dolphins right up close and learned much about the birds in the area. The captain and first mate were very friendly and knowledgeable. We would definitely do it again!
This was amazing. Captain steve and his first mate andrea were so great. Very informative and great views. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Worth every penny.
We had a great time on our dolphin cruise with Good Time Charters. Captain Gale and first mate Phil were professional, fun to listen to, and informative. We had several dolphin sitings and enjoyed learning about local birds and mangroves. A fun family activity. I recommend it and would do it again.
A very well run tour with two friendly operators. We saw dolphins, manatee and many bird types !! A great time for everyone !
Great excursion! Really enjoyed all the Dolphins jumping and frolicking behind our boat for quite a while. Also saw manatees and many types of birds. Both guides were excellent in giving us information about all the wildlife as well as about Estero Bay. Reasonable cost for a 1 1/2 hr trip. Would highly recommend it.
This catamaran tour was a real high point of my trip. As if meandering among the black mangrove islands, seeing rookeries of perching pelicans, posing cormorants, profiles of great blue herons, and peeking manatees was not enough, a playful, leaping dolphin capped off our adventure...All of this was punctuated by our Captain and crew informing us of the local ecosystem...I would DEFINITELY do this again.
Fantastic tour. Laura and Mike were great. Saw dolphins and many different bird species. Laura, our guide was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING THIS TOUR WITH THEM.
It's a must do experience if your looking for something fun to do. We saw 4 dolphin! They followed along the boat and jumped and frolicked in the boats wake. Our tour guide Laura was very informative and the Captain certainly knew how to attract the dolphin, so we had quite a show. I would most certainly do this again when my friends and relatives come down to visit. It was very affordable too!
