Dolphin Tours in Cape Coral

We love to show you the local wildlife around including our world famous population of dolphins.  And if we're lucky we may see some manatees, sea turtles, rays, Osprey and all the other wonderful creatures we often see on our excursions.

Come on a dolphin tour in Cape Coral and see the wide variety of wildlife Southwest Florida has to offer. We takes you through the sounds, rivers, mangrove creeks and bays.  These private tours are custom designed to your interest. Don’t forget your camera!  Polarized sunglasses will enhance the experience by allowing you to see the wide variety of life living in the shallow water flats of Pine Island Sound. 

Sit back and relax as you cruise the pristine waters off Sanibel Island, Captiva Island and Fort Myers. Our guides will take you to all of the Sanibel Islands Dolphin and Wildlife hot spots.


Pine Island Sound, Blind Pass, Redfish Pass, North Captiva, Captiva Pass, Cayo Costa State Park and Boca Grande. 


On our tours it is common to see Manatees, Sea Turtles, Osprey, Bald Eagles, Pelicans, Rays, Roseate Spoonbills, Cormrants, Loones, Frigate birds and of course Dolphins.  On most trips we see lots of Dolphins at close range.

Are typically in groups of 10–30 members, called pods, but group size varies from single individuals up to more than 1,000. Their diets consist mainly of forage fish.

Bottlenose Dolphins also use sound for communication, including squeaks and whistles emitted from the blowhole and sounds emitted through body language, such as leaping from the water and slapping their tails on the water surface.

Dolphins often work as a team to harvest fish schools, but they also hunt individually. Dolphins search for prey primarily using echolcation, which is similar to sonar. They emit clicking sounds and listen for the return echos to determine the location and shape of nearby items, including potential prey.
