My husband and I went on the dolphin/shelling cruise to Shell Key Preserve. The boat ride to the island was fun. The island itself is amazing. Beautiful water and lots of various seashells. We collected several sand dollars, which are very delicate, so be careful with them. The captains of the boat could've been a little more friendly and outgoing.

We took the 1:30 boat. The Captain and mate made sure we saw lots of Dolphins, which was great. We got to Shell Island and were told we had 45 minutes. The shells were no different than those on St. Petersburg beach- very disappointing!

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.
