provided to The Santiva Chronicle

Where is Santa on his last day before flying out? We found him on a deserted island in the waters surrounding Sanibel Island! Join Adventures In Paradise as they offer Santa’s Dolphin & Wildlife Cruise on Christmas Eve.

Bring the family and hop aboard one of three 45’ open-air Corinthian Power Catamarans, as they cruise among the dolphins to visit with Santa where he’ll be waiting on Picnic Island with gifts for all the children! Photos of your family with Santa at a safe distance will be provided complimentary. Nearly 12 elf feet apart! (Which is really about 6ft.) “Our goal is to continue Santa’s tradition, be safe, and have fun!,” says Adventures in Paradise owner Evelyn Stewart. Along the way guests will sightsee and learn about mangrove islands and estuaries where the Calusa Indians once lived.

Santa’s Dolphin & Wildlife Cruise is an hour and a half long and has several staggered departure times available with the first beginning at 9 a.m. on Thursday, December 24 and returning at 10:30 a.m. Spots for their 9:30 a.m., and 10:00 a.m. departures are also available at this time. Tickets are $69 per adult and $59 per child, reservations are limited as they will be operating at lower than normal capacities. Tickets can be purchased by calling 239-472-8443 or by visiting
