First of all they charge you to enter the state park and the again for the shuttle I think it should be all inclusive. The captain was fun. We feel the website and brochures should advise you what you might like to bring to the island, especially first time visitors, because you are basically "stranded" until they come back for you - which is every hour. Make sure you bring chairs or towels, sun screen (no shade) and somethng to drink and nibble on if you get hungry. We did see dolphins, sand & hermit crabs, local fish and jellyfish. We didn't know much about the island...and that was our fault...need to research before going, but we had fun. You can snorkel and kayak or just chill on the beach...and swim with the dolphins if game...that was cool.
