Our family had a great time today. We saw tons of Dolphins and we were able to swim with them in very close proximity. Then we went to some shallow waters and all of my kids and myself found sand dollars and other neat shells. It is a bit pricey but...my 6, 11, and 12 year old children all loved... More

We had James give us a tour with some Waverunners on August 13, 2014. This was the best $200 we spent on our vacation! He was enthusiastic and wanted everyone to have a great experience. We were able to see dolphins up close and explore Shell Island in a very relaxed atmosphere. I don't think you can truly explore the... More

We paid 100.00 to go on a Dolphin cruise. Our Captain Brian seemed like a nice guy, but apparently was more concerned about getting back at another boat instead of giving his patrons a good experience ! Our cruise began by trying to fake out another boat chasing us to a supposed dolphin site, then more back and forth going... More

My family is all about competitive swimming...on a national ranked level. So, swimming with something far better than us in water was something we had to experience. My wife is like our team manager so she researched which tour to do and selected this one. From the moment we met Captain Mike to the tour conclusion, he was informative, engaging,... More

I think it was Captain Tim that took us out on the water looking for dolphins, what a great boat ride, we spotted some dolphins and tried to get them to come to the boat, but then other dolphin cruizes and wave runners showed up and the party was over. Captain suggested we go ahead with a snorkling adventure and... More

My family very much enjoyed this tour and experience. We only saw a small handful of dolphins, but I think that was due to the time of our tour. The snorkeling was pretty decent. We found a number of sand dollars and a couple of starfish. I would recommend to anyone to do this tour.

First off our guide was super friendly and knew just where to find dolphins at. We got to swim with them and watch them. He then took us way out Shell Island away from the other people so we could snorkel by ourselves which was awesome. Found some pretty shells and sand dollars to bring home. We had a lot... More
