Captain Jack was an excellent guide; he shared his vast knowledge on dolphins and the entire area of Pine, Captiva, and Sanibel Islands. We saw many dolphin and were entertained by several who played in our wake. All four of us enjoyed our cruise and captain Jack.

Capt. Jack was very knowledgeable so we learned a lot about dolphins. The dolphins surfed the waves created by the wake of his boat and we had a really goot time seeing them so close!

I was surprised that this was a small boat that might hold 6 people plus the captain. Most excursion boats I've been on hold 30+ people and I was a bit worried when we pulled up to the boat dock, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. The captain is very knowledgeable about the area and, with only four people in our party, we had very personable service. He had time to answer all our questions. Next time we have visitors, I will definitely consider taking them on this cruise.

Captain Jack knows the area and the animals for the dolphin tour, is a laid back guy, provides a great vacation experience for a small group.

I can not begin to tell you what a wonderful time I had on a half day trip with Captin Jack. His knowledge of the area and his relationship with the the animals in and around it added a specialness you won't get just anywhere. His smaller boat accommodates four people which allows for a more intimate experience then one of the bigger 50 person boats. If your in the area and want to to anything like shell finding, dolphin watching, or fishing, I would highly recommend Captin Jack and Mangrove Masters!

From Our Editors

At the helm of Mangrove Masters is Florida native and USCG-certified Captain Jack Boutchyard, who loves to introduce visitors to the waters he calls home—specifically those surrounding Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Captain Jack brings along all gear, including fishing licenses, rods, and bait for flats fishing charters that chase trout near the grass flats and redfish when the tide goes out. For a hands-off outing, the sunset cruise charts course toward a horizon bathed in soft pinks and purples, presenting a colorful backdrop for dolphins and manatees at play. Treasure hunters can also opt to meet Captain Jack on the dock for a short jaunt to the white, sandy shores of North Captiva Island, which is only accessible by boat and teems with riches such as conch shells, sand dollars, and buried chests filled with pirate baseball-card collections.

But perhaps the biggest attraction, hidden in Captain's Jack sleeve, is the two-hour private dolphin cruise around the waterways of Sanibel, Captiva, and Pine Island, during which visitors observe dolphins and manatees in their natural habitat and from a safe distance. These mammals love to jump and play and often show off their acrobatic skills that could take them to the Olympics if they were a different type of mammals.
