Banana Bay tour Company: 5781 Cape Harbour Dr #112, Cape Coral, FL 33914

Highly recommend their Dolphin Sunset Tour. You go out in the evening and see dolphins jumping around the boat and often they swim next to it. Captain JR shows and tells in a fantastic way dolphins and how they live and work. He engages the kids and makes sure everyone is happy! Book through their website in advance! Sometimes you can find discount coupons that make the ticket cheaper. Google ”Discount Banana Bay Tour Company” Have a dinner at Rum Runners before. The boat leaves outside the restaurant.

Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery: 131 SW 3rd Pl, Cape Coral, FL 33991

Very nice guided tour with generous tastings.

Naples Zoo: 1590 Goodlette-Frank Rd, Naples, FL 34102

This Zoo we can recommend since they have taken care of animals that have gone bad or that are endangered so when you pay your ticket you will help. A reasonably large zoo where you can hear the caretakers tell about the different animals and see them being fed.
