It is no longer out of the Burnt Store Marina. It is very very disappointing. I guess business is business but we really enjoyed them at the Burnt Store Marina!

Captain Will offers a variety of excursions on Charlotte Harbor. Eco tours, porpoise watching, tours to Boca Grande or Cabbage key for a hamburger in paradise or an evening sunset ride. His wife's deli offers great sandwiches or snacks and drinks to take along. If you'd rather he will rent you a kayak and you can tour on your own.... More

Our Boat club toured Gasparilla Sound, the Boca Bayou and the Boca Grand Pass. Our experience was outstanding. Captain Will is extremely well informed and directed our attention to many significant features of the area including a variety of birds and sea creatures. This was our third trip on the Calusa Queen and we will definitely go again.

Captain Will was pleasant and very knowledgeable. We saw manatee trails, a variety of birds, and even a dolphin! It was a relaxing end to a great day.

We enjoy going on Calusa Queen. Captain Will and Bunny are great, informative, kind, and great at what they go. We always recommend the Calusa Queen for all our airbnb.com renters and they love it.

Took the Calusa Queen Cuise to Boca Grande on March 12, 2015. Cruise back and forth was very pleasant and we had the chance to see a couple of manatees very close and a few dolphins; Captain Will and first mate were very friendly and took the time to let us see the manatees. People living on the Island are... More
