My family and I had a great time. We loved riding on the banana boats and my kids also liked playing on the inflatables. We also saw some dolphins. The boat was nice and the staff was great! I would highly recommend this tour especially if you have kids!

Shell Island was a blast and all the crew members were so friendly and helpful! I wish we had seen more while snorkeling, but paddle boarding and the water playground was great. We also loved seeing dolphins!
