We looked at several different boat/dolphin cruise options, but decided to go with Island Explorer. We are SO glad that we did. Our captain, Clint, was friendly, local, and knew so much about the island. The boat was small, but not too small. We were able to move along the waterways and see things the larger boats were missing. We took the three hour Vanishing Island tour, and it was fantastic! We saw many dolphins, great views of the island you can't see on land, and had a grand time walking along the sandbar looking at all of the ocean life in the tidal pools. We felt the price was fair, and it was a wonderful trip. Make this a part of your trip-we will definitely be back!
