This is the fifth time I have taken this trip (see my other reviews) and highly recommend it. We had a beautiful day and the kids loved seeing the dolphins and feeding the seagulls. The crew was great. I was disappointed because half the fun is exploring Egmont Key. There is so much to see. However when we arrived at... More

My sister, 15 yr old neice, 11 yr old daughter and I went on this trip. The boat had 49 people on it, so it was a little crowded but we managed. Our first stop was to snorkel. There were some cool fish and shells, although the water was a little murky but you could still see to the bottom.... More

The keys, feeding the birds,and seeing the turtles was awesome! The snorkeling wasn't great but it might have been the weather.

Visited two islands, collected the best shells, watched dolphins surf 10 feet from the back of the boat, plenty of shade, plenty of sun, and great snorkeling. Tremendous family adventure.

This was a last minute decision and so glad we made it!! The Captains were fun and energetic. They really took the time to look for dolphins and took us on a special trip to an island that was know for finding shells. I highly recommend this for both couples and families.

I can't say anything bad about this 4 hours trip! It was great! Eric and john really made it fabulous! We got to see dolphins, lots of fish, manatees, feed the birds, and much more! Loved stopping by and spending an hour on the island and looking at all the history and the turtles!! Had a great time! Would go... More
