So much more than its name! One side of the island you go to is beautiful blue ocean great for swimming, shelling and relaxing. The other side of the island is a bay area. There were several manatee on the bay side the day we went. They came within feet of us when we were waist deep in the water!... More

My husband and I have been coming to Sanibel for over 40 years and have taken many of the cruises offered in the area. The Shelling and Lunch Cruise offered by Adventures in Paradise is one of the best. Our Captain Tim and first mate Evan were excellent. A wonderful way to spend the day!

During our winter getaway to Florida I frequently take a cruise with Adventures in Paradise. This trip I surprised my husband with the Valentine dolphin/sunset cruise. I also took a good friend on the shelling cruise. Both cruises were captained by Jim and today first mate Evan. I have never had a bad experience with this company and keep going... More

The guide was great. Took me to cool places and I learned a lot in the trip about our relationship with the gulf.

Excellent "eco tour" with knowledgeable, friendly crew. Sam many dolphins and learned lots about the natural wonders of the San Carflos Bay-Sanibel Island region. Well worth the fare. Excellent value!

Captain Jim was great! We went with our 4 and 1 year old and the 4 year old LOVED seeing the dolphins (she didn't care as much about the fish or birds). A few dolphins came very close to the boat and we saw others playing in the wake of passing boats. It was really great! It does takes a... More

We decided to try the shelling trip through Adventures in Paradise since my husband and I had done it about 15 years ago and remembered a good time! Our guides, Jim and Mark, were very kind, knowledgeable, pleasant to visit with and took care of us well. It was very nice to have a way to be out on the... More

We were a group of 6. The boats are clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. No goofy routines just pointing out interesting things along the way. We stopped at a pristine beach and found bags of beautiful shells. Never felt rushed. Next stop was a terrific island restaurant where we had a great meal. On the... More

Yesterday we went on a shelling cruise with mates Evan and Mark. The trip was beautiful. Great shelling. My friend found a juconia. Lunch at Barnacles and a surprise dolphin show in the wild on our way back. Highly recommend this trip and crew
