This was a highlight of our trip. Capt Hans and Capt Frank were very knowledgeable and very professional. We got to see a pod of dolphin and even a baby dolphin. The snorkeling spot was very nice and even though there was an algae bloom, we saw rays and jellyfish. The island hike was educational and we felt like we... More

This is our second time at Island Boat adventures. The first time was pretty bad and I vowed never to go back. However, they continued to get the best reviews, so when the fiancée and I decided that we would like to go snorkeling again at Egmont, we decided to give them another shot. I'm so glad we did!

My 13 year old did not know what to expect. She really wanted to see dolphins while we were in Florida. We saw lots of dolphins or at least 2 of them kept resurfacing because our great guides kept circling around. We found sand dollars on the beach and other great shells. Saw lots of fish and plants snorkeling. Captain... More

We took the trip to Egmont key with small children. The crew was patient and helpful with our kids and we got to experience some of the wildlife and landscape of the area. We especially appreciated the extra time our captain spent watching a pair of dolphins discovered on the way back to the dock. My only comment is we... More

Got to see lots of dolphins, the island was great, snorkeling was super fun even though it wasn't the greatest weather. Would definitely recommend! Can't wait to come back and try the... More

The leaders were responsive to supporting family needs, enhancing our trip, and above all always courteous. Their knowledge of the area was excellent and their attention to detail outstanding. The crew helped us getting to and from the boat with a cooler and as needed was willing to go the extra mile to make the outing enjoyable. Very "family" and... More

We started out by going snorkling. We didn't see much but we still had a good time. We did see jellyfish, star fish, and crabs. The water wasn't as clear as we expected but that was ok. Then, we went on a jet ski tour that was amazing! The owners were awesome, friendly and welcoming. We saw dolphins and went... More

Jet Ski cruise was amazing! We saw lots of dolphins and a stingray! Went to a sand bar and found large shells and tons of sand dollars! The owners are very friendly and know how to run a business. We had so much fun! Going to go again very soon!
