this trip is a waste of time--the beach we were taken to was very poor--shelling was supposed to be good but it was not--then we were dumped out at a restaurant with extremely high prices and no where to even sit--lots of better things to do than take this trip

We took off in the morning fog which only lifted as we got to North Captiva Island. After landing on the beach. We walked the shore and found more and larger shells than we had encountered on the beaches we have driven to. After lunch at Barnacles we started home. On the trip we save a number of dolphins. Very... More

They guarantee doplphins 95% of the time, but they do know where to find them and we saw plenty. The captain and his frist mate were knowledgeable and friendly and though it was chilly, we all had a great time.

We loved the shelling and lunch cruise. The driver and naturalist were really well informed. We ate at Barnacles, which was super yummy and fun. On the way back, we observed Dolphins. What a wonderful day. I would easily do it again.
