Want to catch a glimpse of some of Florida’s most famous marine life? Book a dolphin cruise with any of the local tour operators, such as Adventures in Paradise or Captiva Cruises, to name a couple. And these cruises aren’t limited to dolphin expeditions. You can check out the nature on the nearby islands, steal a look at some manatees, or enjoy a relaxing sunset on the water.
