🐬 Can You See Dolphins in Fort Myers or Naples, Florida?

Whether you’re a lover of these friendly sea mammals or you’ve always longed to see one in real life, you’re in luck. There are many opportunities to see dolphins in and around both Fort Myers and Naples, Florida.

These two towns are nestled on the southwestern shores of Florida’s Gulf Coast, and dolphins love the warm waters here. In fact, there are several pods of dolphins that call the waters here their home. These pods of dolphins travel up and down the coast on a daily basis.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the bottlenose dolphin is the most common dolphin in southwest Florida waters. The best time to spot dolphins is just around sunset. Luckily there are many ways that you can have a chance to see one – or several – in their natural habitat.

We offer sunset cruise dolphin boat tours, or you could try to spot the dolphins from the beach!

If you’re looking for a chance to see dolphins in real life, the following locations in and around Fort Myers and Naples are excellent spots where these creatures are often visible.

🐬 Naples Pier

The historic Naples Pier, which was built in 1888 and has been an iconic spot in the city of Naples, FL ever since. The pier is a great spot to see dolphins!

Early in the wee hours of the morning, around sunrise, in the evening, around sunset, or even late at night, there are always people waiting to see if they can spot dolphins.

It should be noted, however, that the Naples Pier can get busy, so you want to make sure that you get there early enough to scope out a good spot. Also, don’t hesitate to ask locals who hang out on the pier questions about the sea mammals.

There’s even a snack shack where you can purchase food and drink while you’re waiting, and restrooms and rinsing facilities, as well.

🐬 Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park

Wiggins Pass is a beach where you may be able to see dolphins while you’re still on land. The state park features plenty of hiking trails, miles of shoreline, and stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Pack a picnic basket, spread out a blanket, and keep your eye on the water; you just might see a dolphin – or a few – come swimming by.
