Overview

Day trip to Egmont Key, off St. Petersburg, Florida. Watch dolphins jump and play in the surf behind our mono-hull boat. They jump, twist, & spin so close you can almost touch them! Our boat stays with you the entire 2 1/2 hour stay on the island. Explore this tropical island with its abundant wildlife and ruins of a Spanish-American War fort. Snorkel gear is provided for those wishing to snorkel the sunken ruins. Reservations recommended by calling.

It was a very positive & relaxing experience. Being on a small boat made it much more personal. We saw many, many dolphins. Stopping at the beach was beautiful... our kids enjoyed snorkeling & shell hunting. Captain Joe was a delightful guide!

The gentlemen running the boat are rude and it was a very disappointing trip. They do not tell you until you leave on a 4 hour tour that the Captain is a former smoker and will not allow smoking or vaping on the boat. The...More

Solid 4.5 stars. Super cheap entertainment, captain/crew is really friendly. We were able to see some dolphins playing behind the boat. The boat ride to Egmont key was just relaxing in its self. Definitely recommend.
