When I lived in Bonita Springs, Florida I would often fish the Estero bay area, I would see SO MANY Dolphins I cant tell you how often I saw them, almost on a daily basis,
the Ostego Bay Foundation has a Dolphin Project on the Dolphins that live in Estero bay, Called Project Pod
I even swam with them once BUT that isn't anything I'd recommend anyone trying, Wild Dolphins can be extremely dangerous.
Spiker if you folks would like to see some wild dolphins, take a drive over to the Estero bay area, chances are very good of seeing Wild Dolphins. Google Maps
<-the map shows a layout of the Bonita Beach/Ester Bay/ Ft.yers Beach area Direstions are easy south from Ft. Myers on 41, Right onto Bonita Beach Rd. keep going to Ft.Myers Beach. Lots of Bridge areas to stop at along the way to spot Dolphins, Hickory pass. Little Carlos pass, Big Carlos pass.... it's a nice scenic drive. Google Maps
