Our Florida Gulf tour has led us to the isolated and stunning Captiva island, where we boarded a small cruise ship and headed out onto San Carlos Bay to search for dolphins. We didn’t have to do much searching at all. These dolphins were show-offs, flipping and flopping, soaring along the white, foamy waves left behind by the speeding vessel, leaping and diving to the delight of the passengers. Interested in this experience? Head to Captiva and reserve your spot on Captiva Cruises, which states that 95% of their tours see dolphins.
