My twin seven year-old twins love to fish, so I decided to charter a boat for a couple hours for them to hopefully catch some fish. The fishing was decent (they caught half a dozen or so), but the dolphin playing behind the boat was super! The captain was very friendly and super patient with young kids. He taught them... More

We had a magical and very relaxed day with Captain Randy. Everything was relaxed and catered to what we wanted to do. Our 11 year olds enjoyed watching a family of dolphins jump in Randy's wake and the shelling on remote island and sandbars was exceptional! We will return to do this again!

Our family has been visiting Sanibel-Captiva for several years and each time we take a trip with Randy. Shelling, fishing, sightseeing, hard to reach restaurants, Randy does it all. Captain Randy can fill you in on all of the SanCap history and current events. On our trips we have had amazing interactions with dolphins, experienced awesome shelling on Cayo Costa,... More

What an outstanding trip! Captain Randy was quite brilliant informative and a genuinely nice man. I would recommend a four hour trip and take in fishing, shelling and snorkelling to get a real flavour. We will return at some point and will certainly book again with Captain Randy. Thank you.

Then we spotted 2 dolphin and Captain Randy got them to play in the wake from the boat which was so incredible - they were jumping... More

Half-day fishing/shelling/sightseeing charter with Capt. Randy. We always take a trip like this when we visit a beach area and Capt Randy didn't disappoint! Randy was honest that fishing on Captiva had been slow and didn't try to talk us into anything. We fished for awhile, caught a few and then went on to shell on North Captiva, a sandbar... More

Captain Randy always provides an excellent trip. Randy is very knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife, fishing and history. We always learn so much on our trips. We interacted very closely with Dolphins, Manatees, shelled and caught a few fish. Randy knows the best spots and you'll create moments that your family/friends will treasure for a lifetime. The Dolphins love... More

He is just a laid back guy with real knowledge about the local area. My family of 5, including 3 children went on a 4 trip with randy. He catered the trip to what we wanted to see. We asked for dolphins, we got dolphins. Manatees? No problem. Shelling on a secluded island, done. Randy was great with the kids... More

Randys knowledge of the area and waters made our afternoon. From Dolphins to manatees, a secluded beach to epic fishing. We had a fabulous time! Randy will customize the tour to your likes. Must do while visiting Captiva!
