Make Sanibel Island vacation memories that will last forever.
Meet the Creatures
Are you interested in learning about Sanibel's amazing animals? This wildlife-watching cruise is the perfect introduction to some of our islands' most fascinating inhabitants. You can request the creatures you would most like to learn about*, or wait and see who you encounter. One of the most exciting things about this charter is you never know what you will find!
We've been known to spot dolphins, manatees, wading birds, birds of prey, live shells, raccoons, crabs, sea turtles, alligators, and more. Captain Ben started his career working as a naturalist on Sanibel and can tell you all about our local species and ecosystems.
$350/ 3 hours for up to 6 guests. Additional hours can be added upon request at a rate of $100 per hour.
*We can't guarantee that any specific creature will make an appearance, but we will do our best to maximize the chances of spotting the animals you're most interested in.
Lunch in Paradise
What's better than lunch on Sanibel? Lunch on one of the beautiful outer islands, which are only accessible by boat! Take a leisurely ride to Cabbage Key (the definition of Old Florida charm, with resident gopher tortoises and great mahi mahi sandwiches and cheeseburgers!), or dock at Barnacle Phil's and chow down on the delicious catch of the day, crab cakes, or black beans and rice.
Watch for wildlife, hop off the boat to do some shelling, or cast a line along the way. If conditions are right, it might even be possible to take the Gulf route home. Lunch excursions are fully customizable and do not include the cost of lunch.
$450/ 4 hours for up to 6 guests. Additional hours can be added upon request at a rate of $100 per hour. Lunch excursions usually run from 10 AM - 2 PM.
Sanibel is famous for its sunsets, so come out and see for yourself what all the fuss is about. Bring your own beverages, and Ben will provide delicious snacks while you enjoy the views. He will even cast a line at your request!
We have boat-safe cocktail glasses available on board.
$250/ 2 hours for up to 6 guests.
