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. It was worth the wait and worth every bit of the $50 per adult. (Kids were $40 I believe) Tips: -Make reservations 2-3 days ahead of time because they have... More

My husband and I went on this dolphin cruise and absolutely loved it. They were very nice and informative. It was nice that they picked us up at the hotel we stayed at, which was Tradewinds. They made sure we saw dolphins and even a baby one. We stopped at Shell Island to look for shells and I got a... More

We went on this Adventure Cruise last week for the 2nd year in a row. 3 years ago we went with a different company but learned that Captains Steve and Ian are so much more informative and fun than the first company we went with. Highly recommend taking this cruise over all others on St. Pete Beach. It won't disappoint.

My sister and I were walking on beach by Trade Winds and saw the boat on the beach. We signed up for a tour. The price was reasonable. The trip was about 2 hours and since we started a little early got a little extra time on shell island. Weather was perfect and we saw a number of dolphins. The... More
