We visited the sandbar during our fun boat tour. The water was very clear and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The tour guides were outgoing and made our trip very pleasant.

My husband and two young sons did the sunset cruise on June 26, 2017 and we loved it. The crew were great and sand dollar island was absolutely fantastic. This exceeded our expectations.
