So much better than anticipated!
I’ve done two dolphin tours with two different companies in Englewood. This one was a sunset cruise and we really weren’t expecting a lot of animal activity. Boy was I wrong! We really lucked out and saw a pod of females, a baby on Mamas back, a lone male dolphin and a manatee. Captain Sue and Captain Eric were so professional and informative. Good music and no corny jokes! Thank you for making my friends’ visit to Englewood so much more special!
Amazing Sunset Cruise!
We had an amazing sunset cruise with Christina as our guide and Justin as our captain. This was my daughter’s first sunset cruise and she was blown away. Christina’s knowledge of the wildlife was very informative and fun to learn. Our captain even joined in sharing why no wake signs were implemented to protect manatees and how much they have helped. If you are scrolling and trying to decide on which boat to book, pick them because they were amazing!!
Engaging, Informative, Friendly, & Professional
We had an excellent experience on our sunset cruise. Kayla and the captain were engaging, informative, friendly and professional. We caught a beautiful sunset and even saw some dolphins. I would highly recommend their cruise. They were punctual, professional and we felt very comfortable being in their care.
Captains Eric & Kayla !!!!
What a tremendous evening we all had !!!! Eric and Kayla are the most hospitable, fun, genuine and authentic people !!! They are certainly meant for and called to show others SW Florida as it is meant to be enjoyed !! Do not think twice about booking with Gasparilla Boat Tours. You deserve this experience and the friendliness and love from Eric and Kayla.
We saw lots of dolphins close up, flamingos, and a beautiful sunset
I definitely recommend this sunset tour!!! Its was a little over 2 hours, we saw lots of dolphins close up, flamingos, and a beautiful sunset. Kayla and cpt Justin were great guides, loaded with info and fun to talk with about the area!! I will do this again the next time we are in town!
Gem of at trip!!!
Boat tour was well worth the price. Captain Sue and her first mate were informative and great fun. We took the morning critter cruise and spotted dolphins. Boat is clean and comfortable. I would take this cruise again and would recommend to anyone waiting to spend a few hours out on the water.
Highly recommend this Critter Cruise
We took our grandkids on this cruise and what a blast it was. Captain and First Mate asked both kids to drive the boat. We saw dolphins and Manatees and cruised past some really cool spots. I would highly recommend this Critter Cruise to your family!!!!
