Our Customers Say the Nicest Things...

We booked the Dolphin and Nature Tour with Captain Cathy and she did not disappoint! We had just left the dock and had an encounter with a dolphin that started jumping the wake. Captain Cathy had a wealth of knowledge on the geographic, plants, birds, and dolphins, etc... Wasn't long and we came upon a pod of dolphins again jumping the wake it was amazing. We wanted to see a manatee, she said most had migrated north but sure enough she found two in an alcove. What an amazing day!

We took a trip with Captain Cathy out to Cabbage Key — a 3.5 hour charter with our three teenage boys. It was so much fun. We headed to Cabbage Key and Cathy was so knowledgeable, took us looking for dolphins and we saw many. She was a fount if really good information that our boys found interesting about dolphins, the area and the various islands here. She made sure we got to the restaurant ahead of the crowds, arranged a great table for us and then after she took us to a secluded key (I think it was called penguin) where we all had a chance to swim and take in the serenity of the area. Cathy was engaged and entertaining the whole time. I would highly recommend her charter to anyone.

Trip exceeded our expectations. We moved quickly from activity to activity which suited our toddler well. Cathy was very friendly and accommodating. The trip was well worth it.

We went on a Captain Cathy Eagle boat tour and had an amazing time! It was magical watching the dolphin jump along side the boat! We saw manatee and gopher tortoises. Lunch at Cabbage Key, then exploring a private beach. We would highly recommend this experience. It was a highlight of our trip to Florida!

Rachel O

Captain Cathy was terrific! She took us to lunch on Cabbage Key and we saw dolphins along the way. They rode he wake of the boat and were close enough that we could almost touch them. Lunch was amazing and then she took us to a beautiful island beach, we saw manatees. This tour was everything our family could have asked for! We highly recommend Captain Cathy for any one or family looking for a fun knowledgeable tour guide to drive you into paradise ☺️

Most excellent tour by Captain Cathy! She called in the dolphins to ride on the boat’s wake just like my father in law would call in the cows for feeding! It’s like she knows their language! Highly recommend her tours!!

If you're looking for a relaxing, enjoyable, and informative time on the water, this is the one to choose. This was a family outing of six persons that included two children approximately one and two years old, which can sometimes be a challenge. Captain Cathy's casual, no rush attitude made this a great experience for the whole family.

I called Captain Cathy early in the morning of our daughters last day visiting us on a Cape Coral vacation. We had 4 children with us ranging in age from 7-14. She suggested that we do a 3 1/2 hr. cruise with her to see the dolphins and manatees, including a ride over to a Cabbage a Key for lunch. Sure enough, she got 6 or so dolphins to play in our wake! Lunch at Cabbage Key was wonderful and the kids all enjoyed climbing their water tower and seeing the turtles. Then we went to a manatee cove and saw a manatee fairly up close. More dolphins followed us as she brought us to a small island to do some shelling. The kids all had a super time. Cathy is so great with the kids. She had our 14 yr old grandson help with the ladder on the boat and was sure to take our family photos several times. This was the kids best day on vacation and they're still talking about it. We will certainly look her up again when we return, and you should do the same!

If you want a fantastic experience and great day on the water in this area "Captain Cathy is your person." Very knowledgeable of the whole area and the history, along with marine life experience, "She is the dolphin whisperer." Really enjoyed our time with her and the water!!!!

We booked Captain Cathy for a boat tour and wedding aboard her boat. It was absolutely amazing. She is a very nice woman and extremely knowledgeable of all the surrounding. She was able to have dolphins travel with us along the way. Lunch at Cabbage Key was perfect. I would highly recommend taking a trip with Captain Cathy!!!

Have been on Captain Cathy’s boat for parties, burial at sea, sunset and dolphin tours. She is the best and knows the area and water very well. You will have a ball with her, every time out.

My wife, our friends, and I went with Capitan Cathy Eagle on a dolphin and lunch tour. Capitan Cathy wouldn't guarantee seeing dolphins, but she should have. Once we got out of the harbor, three dolphins started following us in the wake. One was a young baby, quite a bit smaller than the other two. They came within a few feet of the boat. After they left, a set of four dolphins were jumping in the wake. It was like they were putting on a show for us. We then had a relaxing lunch on Cabbage Key (leave room for their key lime pie!). On the way back, two more dolphins followed us. Go with Capitan Cathy. She's knowledgeable and fun. Great afternoon, thanks Cathy.

Captain Cathy took us on the trip to Useppa Island and when she called the dolphins they suddenly jumped out of the water and were accompanying us quite a bit. It seamed they had so much fun as we had. We could not believe it! Captain Cathy is quite a personality. Knowledgeable, fun to talk to and a good captain, too. We felt really safe on her nice boat. Highly recommended.

Great tour. Captain Cathy was a wonderful guide and dolphin genius. We saw lots of dolphins. Kids had a great time and so did the adults. Captain Cathy had lots of information about the area and great stories too.

We went on a dolphin tour today. We saw a lot of dolphins! Cathy is filled with many interesting facts about dolphins and about the islands the tour goes around. It was a lot of fun and we got to see what we came for. I would highly recommend this tour.

Annonymous

Great time we had today on Captain Cathy's boat. We saw so many interesting sights. Cathy has so much knowledge about the area, as well as the history. The dolphins were so amazing and fun to watch as they followed behind the boat. Fish, plant life, and so many barrier islands were included on this tour. She couldn't have been a better hostess! We feel it was well worth the money and we will certainly recommend this to our friends.

travlelersrus

We've gone on boat tours with Captain Cathy a number of times ...always something new and exciting. I'm certain that she can talk to the Dolphins they're always hanging around her boat. Fantastic tour with an amazing lady. We highly recommend going on one of Captain Cathy Eagle Boat Tours!

EmLouden

Captain Cathy boat tours are wonderful and fun. My late husband and I had a such a memorable experience and all of Captain Cathy's pet dolphins were there to dance for us! I highly recommend you travel with Captain Cathy!!

Rita Miller

My husband and I have been out with Captain Cathy many times and every time is simply amazing! This time we went with friends for a celebration and Captain Cathy made sure we all had a wonderful time. We set out into the sunset and quickly had some special friends following us. Cathy, the dolphin whisperer never fails to get her friends to tag along and one point we had 5 dolphins playing in our wake. So much fun! After a great dinner on Cabbage Key, where our captain made sure we had special attention, we enjoyed a moonlit ride back. Every journey with Captain Cathy has been and absolute joy, so much better and more personal than those crowded tour boats!

Marci E

Had a great time with dolphins. Also earlier took a wedding vow renewal for our daughter and family. Cathy made each child feel like an important part of the ceremony, ages 14, 11, and 2 . So special. Thanks!

Connie M

We had a wonderful time with Captain Cathy Eagle, we saw so many dolphins, stopped at an island for a nice lunch, and had a great day on the water. We were a group of six women, celebrating our birthdays! We will be doing this trip again when we all get together!

Penny P

Captain Cathy has the actual, unique ability to summons the dolphins on her tours. She knows the waters well and can find exactly where the dolphins play with her special dolphin call. She will charter your dolphin tour to one of the exclusive island restaurants for lunch or dinner. Watch the dolphins ride the wake on your way to Cabbage Key or The Collier Inn on Useppa Island.

Raemi G

Amazing experience with Captain Cathy! The dolphins seem to know her and flock to her. We love her demeanor, and she was very knowledgeable of the waterways. Highly recommend!

Dane Eagle

Cathy is amazing. Known as the dolphin whisperer of Matlacha. She is so knowledgeable and educating on her tours! One thing I learned is, dolphins get sunburned just like humans do! I have been on her tours several times and she knows what she is doing!! It’s like the dolphins know who she is and flock to her! Highly recommend!

GD Eagle

Captain Cathy is the BEST! We always take our family and friends on sightseeing dolphin and shelling tours with Captain Cathy! She is not only completely professional but incredibly knowledgeable about the area and a blast to be on a tour with! We never miss an opportunity to go out in the weather with Captain Cathy and highly recommend her as your tour guide!

Judith S

Having just moved to Bokeelia, I chartered a private tour of Pine Island Sound with Captain Cathy so I could learn from a local how best to navigate these tricky waters and some cool sites to bring visiting family or friends. We had a wonderful day cruising the coast of Boca Grande, Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key, and Useppa and Pine Island, having lunch at the Pink Elephant, taking photos of the historic Pine Island fish houses and stopping at secluded oases that only the locals know about. We were greeted by dolphins, manatees, eagles and osprey and she shared interesting facts about each that I never knew. We had a fabulous day and I’m looking forward to getting back on the water again and sharing what I Iearned with others.

My family has taken several boat tours with Captain Cathy Eagle and each time we had the time of our lives. Dolphins galore each and every time. Captain Cathy is a legend around southwest Florida—with good reason. You can't go wrong with Captain Cathy Eagle Boat Tours.

Congakev

I had the pleasure of going out with Captain Cathy Eagle Boat Tours—it was the experience of a lifetime. I had such a great time had to book a second outing!! DO NOT MISS THIS — best boat tour ever!!!

Ginny Alexander

From stepping aboard to reluctantly leaving the boat, the tours I have had with Captain Cathy are nothing short of remarkable. Whether stopping at Cabbage Key for lunch or walking the deserted beaches of Cayo Costa, each time out has been an adventure. She knows these waters like one knows their neighborhood. Her knowledge of the local flora and fauna is most informative. And always, the excitement in seeing the dolphin, particularly riding and diving in the wake, is an unparalleled thrill. I go on at least one tour each time I visit this area and look forward to the next one booked in February. Captain Cathy is the best!

Bicker50

Always a fabulous adventure with Captain Cathy! She’s very informative, experienced and I truly believe she can talk to the dolphins! Don’t miss out on an opportunity to be a guest on her boat tour, you will not be disappointed. I recommend her to everyone that comes to visit!
