Dolphin Cruise FAQs
How long are the tours?
They are approximately 1.5 hours. We take you for a narrated tour of Estero Bay and you will enjoy a magnificent view of the Gulf of Mexico.
Will we see dolphins on this tour?
While it’s very likely that you’ll see dolphins, we cannot give you a 100% guarantee because nature is unpredictable. But rest assured that our captains will do their best to ensure you see the greatest amount of wildlife as possible! We will take you to areas of frequent dolphin activity and alert you as soon as they come into sight.
Is this tour appropriate for all ages?
Our dolphin cruise will bring smiles to the entire family…no matter what the age! Estero Bay is Florida’s first aquatic preserve and one of the only places where you can see dolphins, manatees, and a variety of aquatic birds living in the same water. Plus, our boat has high railings and a non-skid deck that help keep children safe.
What should we bring for our cruise?
As a passenger, you are welcome to bring snacks and beverages on your trip. We provide a cooler with ice for your convenience. Don’t forget your sunblock. The boat has areas of shade to keep you covered but you will get some sun. Feel free to bring a camera to capture all the memories you will experience.
Where do we park?
The closest parking area is near the Fish-Tale Marina Ship’s Store at 7225 Estero Blvd (look for the bright yellow building). It is directly behind Santini Marina Plaza. During our busy season additional parking is available in the plaza parking lot.
