Best Fort Myers Dolphin Tours
Estero Bay Express II
Welcome aboard the Estero Bay Express II, a 40 foot sun-seeker tour boat that departs from Fish Tale Marina and gives you an up close look at Estero Bay’s dolphins. Along the way, you may also get to see other marine life such as manatees, pelicans diving for fish, or ospreys. It’s a family-friendly trip you and the kids are sure to love.
All Island Watersports
All Island Watersports is a unique way to meet the dolphins if you also love a little thrill. You’ll be able to drive your own powerful Yamaha Waverunner into the Gulf, led by a guide, and literally place yourself right next to the dolphins. They love to swim beside fast boats, after all! Past guests have raved about this experience and it is one of the most highly recommended Fort Myers Dolphin Tours.
Fort Myers Princess
Fort Myers Princess is a luxury cruise takes you through Matanzas Pass and into the Gulf on a search for dolphins who love to swim in the ship’s wake. You may also be lucky enough to see other creatures like sea turtles and manatees. Not only will you get to enjoy the visits from marine animals, but the cruise also allows you to sit back and relax with a refreshing drink from one of their on board bars and keeps you entertained with satellite radio.
Island Time Dolphin and Shelling Cruises
Get ready to explore the Gulf of Mexico on the Island Time Dolphin and Shelling Cruises! This excursion takes you along grass flats in search of feeding manatees and dolphins ready to play.
