Dolphin choose a cruise!



Dolphin choose a cruise!


Hi, my name is Ryan Van Denabeele; I am the Marketing and Operations Director at Salty Sam’s Marina on Fort Myers Beach. We run the Sight Sea-R tour boat that has hosted thousands of people over the years and given them memories of SWFL that will last a lifetime. Hurricane Ian has devastated the area and the marina. Sight Sea-R has extensive damage but is still floating.

We are raising funds to help rebuild the Sight Sea-R tour boat. While we have insurance on the boat, there will be things not included in the insurance. These funds will go to the rebuilding of the boat and help our staff.

Explore Fort Myers Beach and the surrounding islands from the water aboard our spacious, open-air 50’ catamaran. Enjoy luxurious waterfront homes, dolphins, and other marine wildlife as you sit back and take in the incredible views. Sip on cocktails, beer or wine from your personal bartender while you cruise with friends. We offer dolphin cruises and sunset cruises, all narrated by our certified Master Naturalist. Sight Sea-R Cruises are something the whole family can enjoy! With a bathroom and a full bar under shaded cover, there is no better way to experience the waters around Fort Myers Beach. The vessel is also accessible.



This was thee best choice we made so far!! The captain Ted was amazing! He gave us so much information. About the birds, the abandoned boats, and then the best part...THE DOLPHINS!! We actually got to see some. HANDS DOWN THE BEST!!! WOULD 100% RECOMMEND!!

Take this cruise

Took some time to convince my family that this was the best way to spend our last vacation day in Ft. Myers Beach, but they were universally delighted by the end of the boat ride. We took the Dolphin & Wildlife Adventure (2 hour) Cruise and had so much fun. We must have seen about 20 dolphins, no kidding, and they were jumping all around the boat as well. We got some great videos and wonderful memories. The crew on board was easy going & informative too. It seemed everyone on the boat had a great time, a lot of laughter all around -- a perfect way to complete our family vacation. Highly recommend.

Sunset with Captain Dennis

Thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise with Captain Dennis! His knowledge of the area and the wildlife is very impressive. Booked to impress out-of-town guests. Even the 5-year old loved it! I must say that the dolphins at the end of the cruise was the icing on the cake of a perfect day with friends.

Don't miss this excursion

Engaging crew!! Captain Teddy and first mate Steve. These guys do a fantastic job. Really spending the time pointing out interesting landmarks, wildlife and DOLPHINS. Such an enjoyable cruise around the bay. Had the dolphins right up to the boat. Great shade available on the boat. Has a bar on board so adult and non alcoholic beverages available! If you get the opportunity to take this sight seeing cruise please do it. Side note: my family is pretty picky, crabby and mostly difficult. They loved it!!!! Everybody was pleased and had a great time!!!!!!!

Dolphin Nature Cruise

We took this cruise out of Ft. Myers Beach and it was awesome. Captain Teddy knew where to go to find the Dolphins We saw several pods. They swam up to the boat. They followed the wake of the boat. They jumped out of the water for us to see. We saw a mother with a baby. There were two that swam with the wake of the boat almost like a synchronized swimming show. These wild dolphins were liked trained performers. Captain Teddy knew a lot about the environment and nature. He was very informative. I will definitely take this trip again.
