Captain Dalton did an amazing job guiding us through the waters! He was very knowledgeable about the area and educated us on the eco system and led us to the dolphins!, We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion. I would highly recommend this tour to visitors of the St Pete area.

Our Captain Dalton did a great job. We saw a Dolpins just as we left the no wave zone. He swam next to us for a bit so got to watch him. Dalton gave us information on other wildlife in the area. We saw a sting ray and other small fish near the shell key. Gathered some good shells to take home. It was fun for our family would recommend.

It was an amazing experience. We were a couple minutes late and they waited and accomodated us. They had a lifevest for my 1-year-old baby. We even saw a dolphin with her baby swimming. Our capitain knew so much about sea life, dolphins and the St. Pete/Tampa area. Highly recommended. I only wished it lasted longer.

Captain Dalton was great! We saw so many dolphins throughout the trip and the snorkeling on Shell Key was so fun. Captain D spotted a starfish for us. Highly recommend!

We did this tour in July 2019 for the first time and it was fun this time as well. The water is much cooler so keep that in mind when booking a snorkeling tour in December. :-)

Captain Dalton provided a great family experience for us. He made our family feel welcome from the start, and also gave us some fun local information on Shell Island and the biodiversity. Bonus, we saw a dolphin up close and had a great time shelling!

Captain Devon was a lot of fun as well as very knowledgeable about the ecosystems of the Gulf and Bay. The boat was super comfortable, and the two-hour cruise was a perfect amount of time for us since we were visiting family and didn't want to take a full day.

One of the best choices I made was to make a reservation with Island Ferry. Our original date showed bad weather and they called me to see if we could change the date. Thankfully we could because the excursion was fantastic. Captain Roger was so knowledgeable about the area and answered all my 4 years old questions. We saw so many dolphins playing. It was so cool! Shell Island was crazy cool. SO MANY SHELLS! I looked for weeks at all the different companies that do tours of Shell Island and I selected this one because of the small group size. Since we were a party of 5 we had the entire boat to ourselves. It was amazing. You won't regret booking this!
