Very nice staff, the captain and his assistant were very nice, when we were at the little island they provided my husband a snorkeling kit and gave my teen sister "treasure coins" to hide for the kids. We didn't see any dolphins until we were going back and the captain was following them and making sure we saw them

Decided to do last minute and was not busy at all. Man selling the tickets was very friendly with our six little ones asking lots of questions and even gave them each a cool shell necklace. Great service. Beautiful tour and island that you stop at to collect shells and swim. Tour guide gave lots of cool facts about lots... More

Took this trip last year, it was our 3rd time on it. Tour the Bay, celebrity homes and some historic markers. You do stop at an island, its an ok ish island-very small, nothing spectacular. You will find the same shells you find on any of the Gulf beaches. Crew is always very nice, we have seen dolphins everytime. Your... More

We loved our experience here. The people were nice and funny. We chose to do the 11am trip. We saw many dolphins. The captain and the other guy tried really hard to point them out and made sure we saw them. We saw a mommy and her baby. They were educational and fun at the same time. They told us... More

We did see dolphins, and the captain was very chatty. The shell Island wasn't up to much though! Just a sand bar that every other boat in Clearwater had visited and churned up the sand, so no point in snorkelling.

We missed our first boat because of traffic, but were able to walk right on for the next one! We saw dolphins right away, and they just kept coming. We saw about 8 and it was thrilling. When we stopped on the island it was so nice. It was a great view and the tour of the waterfront homes was... More

We had a sunset. Dolphin cruise with these folks last night. After checking all of them, it was longest and cheapest of them all. Last year, went on little toot, but this was better because they stop at a little island and give you bags for collecting shells. They are good tour guides too and we saw tons of dolphins... More

We only got to see a few dolphins. The island to go shelling on wasn't anything special. Mostly clam like shells and mostly broken. Several boats were docked at the island when we went by. The sound system needs updated, couldn't understand anything our tour guide was saying as we went past mansions and such. We did see dolphins, they... More

We took the first trip of the day. The boat ride was pretty cool! We saw a number of dolphins. The best part was that, two of them actually followed a boat and put a good show for us. It was amazing. Then we went to an "island", actually a small piece of land in the ocean, it was nothing... More
