“just do it”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Captain Matt and Captain Glenn were great, did the dolphin cruise and the shelling cruise, best part of our trip. Highly recommend, they were great! Will do again the next time we come back. Well thought out and planned, don't think twice, just do it.

“Fantastic fun day out!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had a great day yesterday. Island is truly beautiful. Kids had a blast too. Lots of wildlife and a few dolphins spotted. Crew were good fun and informative and boat lovely. Lunch was lovely but bit pricey. We would have preferred some lighter options at that time of day eg fruit platters / sandwiches but that is just us probably :-) will return another time thank you.

“A Fun Day in the Sun”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Our family took the Adventures in Paradise shelling trip in June. We had a fantastic adventure. The ride out to Cayo Costa was smooth sailing all the way. When we arrived at the island we enjoyed the use of the chairs and umbrellas provided. We also appreciated the complimentary sodas because it was a very hot day. We took advantage of fishing, shelling, and swimming while we were there. We saw a few ospreys, and a manatee swam by as well. We enjoyed our lunch at Barnacle Phil's. We were given more than enough time to enjoy our lunch. The ice cream cones were the best bet on this hot day. The ride back was fun. We ran into several dolphins and enjoyed watching them swim around the boat. While we were riding back I heard one young boy tell his mom, "This was the best day ever." I sure enjoyed it.

“Well worth the money!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We went on the sunset tour and it was very worth the money spent for 5 of us. The trolley came to our hotel to pick us up with no extra cost. Man driving the trolley friendly and let our kids sit right up front. The captain of the boat was knowledgeable about things there and did not cut our ride short. It was about 90 minutes. We saw about 6-10 dolphins and a great view of the lighthouse!
