Want a chance to see some dolphins? How does a romantic sunset cruise sound? What if you could see all the sites in Naples, FL—not from a trolley—but from a tour boat on the Gordon River?
If the idea of viewing dolphins, picturesque sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico, and huge mansions piques your interest, then you’ve come to the right tour company. One thing is for sure…you’re NOT going to see these things from a tour bus or trolley. On a tour bus, you’re won’t see dolphins, you might get an obstructed view of the sunset, and you might see a mansion or two. However the owners usually keep them well hidden from roadside viewers. But on our Naples sightseeing cruises, you’ll have the option to:
See dolphins & other wildlife
Pair a delicious meal with a cruise
See the sun disappear over the blue waters of the Gulf
Experience our local waters through the eyes of your child
See mansions of the rich and famous
Depending on what you want to see most and for how long, we’ll help you decide which cruise is best suited for you and your guests. We have two main tours: sightseeing cruises and dolphin watch cruises.
If seeing dolphins is your number one motive for sailing with us, then this is the cruise to be on. This eco-tour captures mother nature at her best! Our dolphin watch cruise aboard the M/V Naples Explorer introduces you to the families of dolphins that live in Naples Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Along with watching dolphins play, this 3 hour cruise takes you for an adventure out to the northern ten-thousand islands including Keeywadin Island, where you’ll have a chance to walk the beaches and find magnificent shells! You’ll see bald eagles, ospreys, and other amazing animals native to Southwest Florida. The Gordon River, itself, is a masterpiece of Florida Wildlife with miles of life-sustaining estuaries surrounded by beautiful Mangroves. These tours depart twice a day. For rates, departure times, or to book a reservation, visit our dolphin watch page.
When you board the vessel, get yourself a drink, sit back, relax, and enjoy Naples’ scenery. Our captains will give you a narrated tour of the history of Gordon Pass and the Naples Coastline. Plus you’ll see huge, sprawling, luxurious mansions on Naples Bay. You will hear colorful stories that are the very foundation of Naples’ rich character. There are five, daily 1.5 hour cruises on M/V (Merchant Vessel) Double Sunshine from which to choose. Enjoy the cruise and then explore the shops and restaurants at TIN CITY. Please note: You may or may not see dolphins on this cruise. For rates, departure times, options, or to book a reservation, visit our sightseeing page.
The majority of guests that come on our cruises tell us they want to see dolphins more than anything. If this describes you, then we recommend the dolphin watch cruise because we spend double the amount of time on the water and we travel further, giving you more of an opportunity to see these playful creatures.
If seeing the sights, enjoying the colors of a sunset, having dinner, and/or bringing a child for free appeals to you more, then we recommend a sightseeing tour. Check out the side by side comparison chart below to help you choose.
