We had a great time on our short cruise from the resort to Shell Island. We enjoyed looking for and spotting dolphins along the way. The captain stopped the boat a number of times and got closer so we could see and take pictures. There were quite a few dolphins which was great for the kids. We had about 45... More

This was such a great adventure and for such a fantastic price! The boat ride itself is worth the price, with amazing views and a fun crew. I was so happy that after boating around for a while, we finally found some dolphins! Gorgeous animals and to see them in their natural habitat, not suffering in tiny pools at SeaWorld,... More

We had a great experience. Steve and Ian were great. They gave us a tour around St Pete Beach looking for dolphins. It took a while to find the dolphins but when we did we stayed and watched them for a good amount of time. We got to shell island later than planned but they gave us plenty of time... More

We had a great trip and the crew was very accommodating. We saw a group of dolphins, at least 20-30 up close. We had two elderly people with us that aren't very mobile and they were able to get on and off the boat with no trouble. An awesome day for our family. This trip will be talked about for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Shelling and Dolphin Cruise. We were picked up right at the TradeWinds Island Grand where we were staying. On our way to the island we were able to see and watch the dolphins playing. On Shell Island we found fantastic shells including numerous sand dollars. The two hour trip was just the right amount of time.... More

We had a wonderful time with the folks at Adventure Cruises. We did the 2 hour dolphin and shelling trip on a Monday afternoon. We saw several groups of dolphins on the way out to the island. The shells on the island were great and the water was perfect to gather shells. Overall a wonderful experience for my 8 year... More

Snorkeling Adventure - Monday July 11, 2016 We had been trying to take this trip for two years but due to weather and full bookings we were unable to previously.
