Dolphin tours or wildlife sightseeing trips are some of the best ways to spend your day on the water. Not everyone has to catch a fish to consider it a successful day! We have nearly 365 days of sunshine here in Southwest Florida to enjoy. If you are visiting the Fort Myers, Sanibel Island, or Captiva Island area please consider booking your fishing charters, shelling tours, dolphin tours or wildlife sightseeing trips with the most dedicated, professional local guides on the water.

Island hopping + Sightseeing

While on our wildlife tours, watch the dolphin jump and play in the wake of the boat, search for manatee and sea turtles and then stop for lunch at Cabbage Key for a “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and a Cabbage Creeper, their famous cocktail. 


Enjoy birdwatching and photographing birds of prey including bald eagles & osprey as well as wading birds like snowy egrets, great white egrets, great blue herons, white ibis, and roseate spoonbills to name a few. We are also one of the few licensed boat tours able to guide you throughout the waters of the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge where a plethora of birds nest in their natural habitat.

Shelling Charters and Sightseeing Voyages

      Sanibel and her neighboring barrier cays are some of the most extreme shelling locations on the planet. Being a barrier island, Sanibel’s most uncommon characteristic is its east-west situation in the Gulf of Mexico. Sanibel’s land mass sits vertical to the mainland coast as opposed to sitting parallel to shore like nearly every other barrier island. This distinctive situation ensnares shells which are pushed north by dominant gusts and tidal motion.

      Shells become easy to find as the surface of the water recedes when north winds rush across the island. The most popular shelling times are usually December, January and February, however, summer gales often reveal enormous numbers and assortments of shells, much to our delight.

      Catch Me If U Can guides will show you remote beaches where you’ll discover the natural history of Southwest Florida and intimately investigate the sea’s mysterious secrets that ends up on our beaches. Learn for yourself the beachcombing method distinguished by the bent over posture of its participants and referred to as the “Sanibel stoop.” From corals to anemones, jellies and nettles to bivalves and shelled mollusks, each aspect of a living beach has its own tale to tell.
