Watching the sun sink into the sea is one of the most memorable experiences imaginable… and what better place to enjoy the view than from your own tiny, private, floating island! The Sunset Tour is truly a spectacular experience, offering unobstructed views of the vast, unending palette of purples, pinks, reds, and oranges that paint the famous Florida Gulf Coast sunsets. On especially clear evenings, you might even see the elusive green flash as the sun makes its final salutation. While the setting sun is the main draw of this tour, wildlife viewing is always one of the most exciting features, and our sunset dolphin encounters are some of the best in our photo gallery! Our guides are careful not to disturb their natural behaviors, and by giving them space and knowing exactly how to read their activities, our tour groups are often rewarded with breathtaking encounters.
