My granddaughter described it best “Best day Ever”. We all had such a great time. We will definitely do it again. Only suggestion would be to have sign for a central place to meet captain. We almost missed our boat waiting in wrong place.

Highly recommend for families! They texted the morning of to tell us about construction at the adventure, to make sure we made it! Both my kids enjoyed all of it! Snorkeling, feeding seagulls, exploring Egmont key and seeing dolphins! Worth every penny!
