I couldn't be happier with this experience and adventure!! I spoke with Betty and reserved a spot for us via phone. Wonderful customer service ! Arrived at the boat and departed on schedule following our safety briefing from our Capt. Hans and first mate Jon. Found a few pods of dolphins along the way to Egmont key. Had a blast... More

Our family of 5 had a great time on this trip! Reasonably priced, just the right amount of time out on the water and friendly & knowledgable crew. We can't wait to go back and do it again, definitely more we could see.

This attraction is not like others you find at the beach. I was prepared for the typical "overpriced, tourist trap" boat ride but was pleasantly surprised. The staff take great pride in what they do and are very honest, sincere and just want everyone to have a great trip. We have a fun time, being out on the open water,... More

Drove from Orlando to do this boat tour- had a great time- kids say it was their favorite part of our week long vacation in Florida! Saw dolphins and did some snorkeling and seashell hunting- captain and his staff were very professional and helpful! Would recommend as a great way to spend 1/2 day :)

Island Boat Adventures ( Calypso Cat ) located in St. Petersburg, Fl provided us with the most outstanding adventure from start to finish. The first thing I have to say is we were super lucky not to choose one of the fast talking competitors. I'll explain why in a bit. The Calypso Cat crew is a family owned business. Our... More

This was an awesome boat ride. Captain Hans and Vinny were very knowledgable about the island. We had so much fun exploring the island. We are back home in PA now, but if we visit St Pete again, we will definately take this trip again!

We came across this adventure when I looked at tripadvisor for things to do. I'm so glad that we decided to do this. It was so much fun. It was the first time my family had ever been snorkeling. The weather was perfect. The captain and first mate were very friendly and knowledgeable. Exploring the island was very interesting. The... More
