My family of 4 did the two hour ride to the "disappearing sandbar" with Capt Jamie. It was a great time for all of us (kids are 8 and 10) and Capt Jamie was a lot of fun, kept the kids interested and had some good stories too. We saw dolphins and found a dozen sand dollars on the island. Hit some choppy water too which everyone loved. Would definitely go back again.

We booked the disappearing sandbar - dolphin watch trip a few weeks before our vacation. This tour only goes out once a day during low tide so it fills up quickly. Our tour was to be in the evening. We arrived and it looked like a storm might be coming through. When our captain came to get us after we checked in, we asked if he thought it was going to storm and what would happen. He assured us we'd be ok. When we got out on the water and left the dock area, there was lightening in the distance, but again he said it will blow the other way. We couldn't go to the island - which is what they usually do first, because that's the direction the lightening was coming from. So he tried to find dolphins. He found a few, and then he said the storm was too close and we had to end the tour. They refunded us for half the trip, we still had to pay for an hour time. We were very disappointed - this is what we were looking forward to the most for our vacation. I wish they would have told us before we got on the boat that we might not make it to the island and given us the option to cancel. It was not worth paying over $100 for the experience that we had.

We did both the zodiac ride to look at the dolphins / beach combing, and a trip out in one of the small sailboat catamarans. It was an amazing experience, and the only issue we had was that we were not aware that the sailboat trip was a "wear a bathing suit, you WILL get wet" experience. It was still a ton of fun though!

Last year, I went to a camp called Commander Zodiac because I wanted to learn how to operate a sailboat. I learned so much, I want to buy a boat.
