My sister and I really enjoyed our CraigCat adventure. We had ample time to enjoy the dolphins, shells, and the Everglades. Wish we could have seen a manatee, but no guarantees with Mother Nature calling the shots.

The tour itself was awesome. Only bad review is the booking agent with Viator booked us at 1 pm, we show up ticket in hand stating 1 and we were actually at 3. We had to wait two hours. We are glad we did, it was fun. Get better phone folks and that could improve this issue.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Thank you so much for the great review despite the booking issue! Unfortunately, Viator is somewhat new to the game of experience bookings and have yet to get everything just right for their operators so, on their behalf, I do apologize. We don't have much or really, any control over their end of our listing. With the phones, it has been an area wide issue that is effecting majority of the businesses and residents here. We've done our best to mitigate the increasing issues as our population grows but network infrastructure stays the same! I don't think SWFL was ready for the enormous (much greater than previous years) influx of people visiting and moving to the area. Glad we were able to get you out there for a fantastic tour though! See you again soon!

Fun, fun, time! What could be better than being out on the water, soaking up the sun and seeing dolphins coming up next to our boat. Our guide was very helpful and friendly. We would do this excursion again and recommend this to our friends.
