Your Mom and Pop Dolphin Tour Shop

At Just Add Water and Sun you don’t have to share your time on the water with 30 or 40 other passengers. We offer private charters aboard “Jaybird II”, a vessel custom designed to get you up close and personal with dolphin and manatees as well as all of our seasonal and resident wildlife.

Jaybird II is very passenger friendly and wheel chair accessible. Feel free to bring your own cooler and any gear to make your outing more enjoyable.

Please check out our selection of great excursions or call Captain Joe (239) 246-7992 to customize a trip  for you and your family.

“Every time out gets better and better!”

This was our 3rd time out with Joe and each time he has somehow managed to top the time before. This trip brought us lots of dolphins and the largest aggregation of manatees that we have ever seen. Joe is very knowledgeable about the area and points out, and locates, different species of birds, as well as sea turtles. We highly recommend booking a trip with Joe - you won't be disappointed!

“What an awesome time!”

From the moment we met Capt. Joe till we had to say goodbye, this was an amazing, fun, family outing. Joe could not have been more accommodating and friendly. We will definitely do this again the next time we are in town!

“Great Captain, GREAT Trip!”

The trip was very informative. Capt. Joe is a wealth of knowledge and great at conversation… It's a GREAT way to spend part of ANY day in FMB. Put it on your "To Do" list. You won't be disappointed. And, again, I can't stress how nice of a guy Captain Joe is!

“Very friendly, very fun, awesome boat”

Great day with Captain Joe. He went out of his way to accommodate us. Very knowledgeable and experienced. Very friendly, very fun, awesome boat! We will be back.

“Amazing day on the water with Capt Joe”

Our family went out for a dolphin tour today and had the most amazing day! Capt Joe spent a great deal of time making sure we had a great experience. He knew all the tricks to get the Dolphins to interact with us! We would definitely recommend Just Add Water and Sun when you are in Ft Myers.

“Captain Joe was fantastic!”

We signed up for the private island getaway and unfortunately the weather cut our trip short, but he certainly made the most out of the two hours we had. We saw dolphins, a jumping stingray, birds, etc. The youngest kid on our trip called it the “best day of her life.” We are local and can’t wait to do this trip again! Thank you
Captain Joe!!

“Worth Every Penny!”

Just Add Water and Sun is the perfect small group activity! Captain Joe makes the trip entertaining and does his best to ensure his passengers experience up close interaction with dolphins. We took the Shell Adventure this time (our second trip with Captain Joe) and had a blast with the grandchildren. While we swam and picnicked at a State Park, a manatee swam up into our viewing area. An absolutely perfect day making memories!
