The boat ride to the trip was nice and relaxing. The captain and the crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw several dolphins following a shrimping boat that we passed by. The island itself was beautiful with white sand beaches. There was a volunteer tour guide that gave our group a tour of the Fort. He was quite a story teller and we enjoyed the tour and the history lesson. The snack bar had the usual items, but was affordable and tasty. Lunch for 2 was less than $10. We saw more dolphins chasing schools of fish off the beach and lots of jellyfish and blue crabs too. We walked the beach looking at the wildlife (birds) and found a horseshoe crab. The water around the beaches was clear and shallow; perfect for swimming and small children.
