Overview

From the Pier to Paradise. You’ll sail by the beautiful shorelines of St. Pete, pass under the stunning Sunshine Skyway bridge and perhaps see a dolphin or two! This is the only charter offering service from downtown St. Petersburg traveling to Egmont Key and passing under the Sunshine Skyway.

You will have 2 hours on Egmont Key to explore the pristine beaches, historic lighthouse, ruins of Ft. Dade, and the amazing wildlife before your return trip.

Unlike all other ferry services to Egmont Key, The Pelican St Pete will stay with you on the island - bathrooms and a bit of shade if needed, available the entire time.

Boat left & returned on time, and the crew was very nice. Island was nice to walk around in, and had beautiful natural beaches.

Egmont Key is amazing!! The ruins abc especially the tortoises were fascination. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you’re in the area it’s well worth your time.

We had a great trip on the Pelican and a relaxing time on Egmont Key. It was perfect for us to explore the old fort and buildings, hike the trails and have a private picnic before returning to the Pelican for a 1 hour boat ride back to St. Pete. Well worth the money for a 4 hour day trip.

We booked this trip rather last minute, but glad we did. Took a ferry ride from the harbor past the bride to the state park key. The trip from the harbor to the key was an hour. We were lucky to see many dolphins swimming. You can snorkel or explore the key which has ruins of the old fort. There are picnic tables in case you wish to bring lunch along. There is a lighthouse on the grounds as well as protected gopher tortoises and birds. We had two hours to explore the key. My only warning is that you have to be able to climb down a steep ladder into the water once you dock at the beach. Staff was nice and there were toilets on the ferry. Also parking can be difficult near the harbor so allow plenty of time. We just made the ferry because of the parking situation. Otherwise highly recommend this trip.

Whole trip was excellent! Boat was great, crew fun and informative, best part was coming back, they noticed dolphins so slowed the boat down so the dolphins would swim along in our waves.... wonderful sight!

The day was beautiful for a cruise! We enjoyed the boat ride, the group was small so we got to know our fellow travelers. The crew was super helpful and fun. The key is worth seeing but once you get there you see many small local boats that are also out enjoying the day. Overall, it was worth every penny and we will do again when company comes to visit. My hat blew off coming home and the captain stopped the boat and the second mate got out his binoculars before I even knew what was happening! It was so much fun! Pictures won't upload so I have none to share.

Seriously fun! The guys on the boat were so nice and relaxed, fun music and even a cooler filled with complimentary ice and water, and you could store your own food and drinks as well. Egmont Key was chill with an awesome beach on the other side of the island. The boat stayed on the island the whole time with an air conditioned cabin and 2 restrooms for convenience. Way worth the money.

It was a great time. The boat captains were very informative, nice & helpful. We weren’t prepared to take this boat trip so be sure you take your towels, drinks including alcohol and food. Lol. It’s a 7 minute nature walk to the other side of the island. We didn’t see Gilligan or The Skipper.

We had an amazing time for my birthday. Captain John, Evan and Vinnie were great. The boat is awesome, the trip fantastic, we saw dolphins jumping in the wake playing. Egmont Key was beautiful, and the water was nice and clear. Looking forward to doing a sunset cruise next. Can't Wait! Note - please take cash to tip the crew, we only had about $10 and felt bad as they deserved more for their services. Captain John - it was a real pleasure talking with you. This was one of the best Birthdays Ever! THANK YOU Paul and Liz
