This cruise was wonderful. We saw lots of dolphins and a beautiful sunset. The captain was great - slowed and stopped so we could enjoy the dolphins and was very knowledgeable. The cruise was 2 hours and takes you through ICW, Stump Pass and a piece of the Gulf. The boat is large and has plenty of seating. Drinks are... More

We have experienced the larger boat tours out of Sarasota, but wanted something closer to us, so we headed down to Englewood. The boat fits about 30 guests and there is bench seating all around. There are snacks, water and soda available at very affordable prices and we were told you could bring your own food or beverage along if... More

This was a great tour for any age! We enjoyed the boat ride and seeing the dolphins. The Captain was so informative about the waterways and everything about the natural habitats of the wildlife. Even took us where you enter the Gulf of Mexico. This was a great tour for the money!!

Captain Dan and Joyce were very friendly, professional, relaxed, and did their jobs with ease and humor. My husband and I went on a sunset dolphin cruise 4-5-17 and would easily recommend others do so as well! Saw a few dolphins, enjoyed the Captain's commentary, and took in a beautiful Sunset!

Our group of 4 took the 1pm tour and had a blast! The large catamaran is mostly covered from the sun, which was a must for me. Captain and crew did a great job pointing out birds. Our highlight of course, were the Dolphins.....and they did not disappoint at all. Spotted several and Captain kept turning boat so everyone got... More

We took the sunset cruise at Lemon Bay Tours. The captain and mate were well versed on the animals and dolphins in the area. We saw several dolphins and a few local birds on our way out to Stump Pass. For some reason I thought it was a sunset cruise and we would be in the gulf for sunset. I... More

It was a gorgeous day on the water, however we found Captain Bruce did not live up to all the accolades we'd seen written about him. He provided few historical facts or information about wildlife in the area. He did remain in the area where 4 dolphins were swimming for about 20 minutes or so, but offered little information about... More

Well, I am sorry you that feel as though Capt. Bruce, "did not live up" to his accolades. He has over 30+ years of experience and is very qualified at what he does, however he can not control the wildlife. He takes what nature presents and will work with that experience on the tour. He also, will not talk through... More

Found this tour and booked based on other TripAdvisor reviews. We were very happy that we did, the tour was excellent!! The day we were out was a little cool, but we still got to see dolphins, osprey and some manatees. The Captain did a great job narrarating and the views of Lemon Bay are great. If you are in...
