Boat excursion recommendations

We are coming January 27-February 3 (my husband, I, and our 2 kids who are 26 & 29 - first family trip in years. We are thinking a dolphin tour, or sunset cruise -any recommendations of marina's. I heard there are some large sail boats/catarmaran cruises too which would be fun. My daughrter also wants to parasail. This will be my husband's and I 3rd trip and we just love Fort Myers Beach. We are debating a day trip to either downtown Ft Myers River District, Sanibel Island or Naples -your choice?? Sorry for so many questions.

Good Time Charters out of Snook Bight Marina, it's a good time and the crew is very nice. It's located behind Publix, use the Publix entrance and drive straight Bach to the marina.

Good Time charters for sure Naples was a letdown to us, I'd try downtown Ft Myers or the Edison/Ford summer homes in FT Myers

Day trip ideas are: Sanibel and Edison Ford home area. Been to both a few times and we will be on Sanibel about a month after you. Edison Ford is great to us. On Sanibel, take the guided tour of Ding Darling. If there is a delay, have a snack or lunch at Doc Fords which is very close by. You can also catch a dolphin cruise from Captiva as long as you are there.

Might be a little chilly for Parasailing but if not, you can do that from Ft. Myers Beach. Enjoy!

Thanks! that is close to where we are at as well! We have reservations at Island Towers Resort which is across the street from Publix.

I would skip the dolphin tours. Not worth the money imo.

I'd recommend going to Lover's Key and walk the beach and hike the trails.
