Took a 2 hour cruise and throughly enjoyed with the family! Saw manatee and dolphins and visited the breathtaking shell beach. Sandollars on the beach and the clearest water I have seen, perfect for snorkeling!

Exactly what we hoped for when we signed up. Nice boat, great crew, lots of dolphins, and fun shelling on the Shell Key. Couldn't have been better.

We enjoyed a perfect Florida afternoon by taking this pontoon boat over to Shell Key for some shell collecting and some dolphin watching. The two captains were very informed about the area and were determined to show us some dolphins - and when we did spot them, let us hang out and take as many pictures and video as we... More

We chose this cruise because it was a dolphin watch as well as a shell collection tour, and was located at our hotel- Trade Winds. The cruise was $40 a person and we were not disappointed. We saw Dolphins before we even left shore! Then, once we started moving, several Dolphins started swimming and jumping in our wake. It was... More

We chose to take this cruise as part of our weekend celebration for my sister's 50th birthday. Seeing dolphins swimming in their natural habitat was on her bucket list and she lived every minute of the trip. The staff were courteous and humorous- traits which I find equally important, especially when on vacation. The boat also picks you up right... More

We were bummed that there weren't snorkeling trips (in Dec, but realized that the water was too cool for comfortable snorkeling); however, we wanted to get out on the water and chose Adventure Cruises. We were not disappointed. We saw several groups of dolphins, and were thrilled that we found them, since this is their natural environment, and many not... More
