We had 2 teens with us and they also had the best time out there. The stop at Shell Island offers a nice break and beautiful location to relax for... More

We had a great time on the wave runner dolphin tour. I don't remember our guides name but he did a very good job. We really wanted to rent the runners and go off on our own but couldn't find any place that would let us do that. But, this was just as good and we had a blast. It... More

Nice facilities with air conditioned restrooms. Our guide worked hard to find the dolphins and gave us plenty of time to explore Shell Island. Lots of fun!

Our jet ski dolphin tour was amazing. We aren't sure of our tour guides name but he was super cool and informative. He got up close go pro footage of dolphins under water for us. We had so much fun it's definitely something we would do again!

Only allows 1 spectator in the boat per family. How are you suppose to go as a family when there is 6 of us. Didn't go and wouldn't try. Many other places available to choose from.

We had a great time on the jet skis. Tim, our instructor, was very informative and helpful. It was nice to be able to have free access to ride the jet skis. Tim waited out in the bay while we rode and made sure we were ok if we fell off of our jet skis. The price was good too... More

We did the 2 hour, jet ski dolphin tour and had a great time. Reservations were a simple phone call, paid via paypal and check in was a breeze. (There was 5 in our group, aging 10-53). Our guide was very friendly and made sure that everyone had a great time. We saw a few dolphins playing in the ocean,... More

Our family of seven is a diverse group--- we found Sunshine Watersports to be perfect! We rented three jet skis for $300 total. Joey, our guide, led us through everything with smooth sailing. He led us to a pod of dolphins and collected sand dollars for us. We had a blast! We had never been to Shell Island, and we... More
