We did a boat ride from Merry Pier to Shell Key. We had a lot of fun. Staff was experienced, friendly and everyone enjoyed snorkeling gear and shell bags. We found tons of sand dollars in the shallow water.

We took a 1/2 day fishing trip and Randy and his crew couldn't have been more energetic or nicer. Although we could easily have gone out of John's Pass where we are staying, we chose this because it was a better deal and we were...More

We had the best time on the sunset cruise. We learned lots of history. We saw dolphins and many birds. The sunset was gorgeous. We will do this again for sure!

What an awesome way to spend an afternoon!!! Staff are friendly, funny, and very informative. The women gave us a lesson on how shells were made on our way over to the island. So glad we did this.

This was our favorite spot on St Pete. Water was extremely clear, wake was calm, and it was the perfect place to fish, see dolphins, and snorkel near the jetty. Will be back!!!

Please direct your questions to the Trip Advisor page for the Miss Pass-A-Grille Deep Sea Fishing boat. They dock at Merry Pier but it would be best to have them answer any questions about their fishing trips. Thank you.
