“Amazing trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

The owners and crew of Paradise Adventures are fantastic! They are they when you need them and very personable. The drinks were great, especially their signature rum drink. The cruise was nice and seeing the dolphins was even better. Couldn't have picked a better night for a sail. I can not wait to try the half day sail with my son!

“Gem of the Gulf Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

First off I would just like to thank captain Joe, Lisa the bartender, and Josh for making the experience as wonderful as it was. As we left the dock going to the island they had great music, an awesome atmosphere, and everyone was so friendly. On the island we had 3 hours to snorkel, play on the inflatables, ride the banana boat, paddle board, kayak, and of course relax at the bar. The whole operation was very safe and family friendly. After leaving the island we made one more stop before heading home. We got to see tons of dolphins, they were even doing tricks and playing! I really couldn't of asked for a better experience. Prices are very reasonable and the staff were phenomenal. I definitely recommend the paradise adventure catamaran to anyone looking for fun in the sun.

“Memories Galore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

As a Floridian, I have pretty much tried it all. I love spending a day with my family or friends on a boat and just relaxing or swimming around Shell Island (a local hot spot). This Catamaran trip was by far the most interesting and fun-packed day I've ever had at the Island! Josh was great with us on the banana boat rides, Lisa makes the BEST "Privateer Punch" rum drink I've ever had, and the Captain, Joe is not only friendly and informative about the surrounding areas, but he takes great care of the crew and guests on board. He was never out of sight (which was great because there were several younger kids in the group) and Lisa was busy all day either making or delivering drinks to us on the beach! I have worked in the service industry for several years and Paradise Adventures really holds the bar high for the best experience possible. Only thing you may want to invest in is a Water Proof Camera. Can't wait to get back again this summer with the rest of my family! Thanks again to the crew, oh, and the Dolphins for a great show at the end! :)

“Fun and Relaxing Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

The sunset sail was awesome!! It was my first time on a Catamaran that big and I loved the experience! We saw dolphins and I took many beautiful pictures of the gorgeous sunset. I enjoyed the friendliness of the crew. It was also nice to have a variety of drinks on board. My favorite drink is the Privateer Punch! I have recommended this trip to my friends and definately plan to go again!!
