We had a fantastic trip with Vinnie and John. Couldn't have asked for better weather. We got to see pods of dolphins which were breathtaking and snorkeled for the first time wth my kids. Special thanks to John for diving in to get my glasses that came off in the water. Thank you for such a memorable afternoon!

We went with a party of 10, ages 8 to 47. We all loved it! We snorkeled, had a picnic on the beach, and found a bunch of cool shells. We got to see crabs, starfish, birds, dolphins, manta rays and turtles. The staff was super knowledgeable, helpful and fun. Captains Vinnie and John were awesome!

My daughter and I spent a wonderful afternoon on the Island Boat Adventures. We saw dolphins and went to Egmont Key and snorkeled for awhile and then got off the boat for an hour or so of checking out the Key and walking the beach collecting some cool shells. It was alot of fun!

You get to see the beauty of Tampa Bay as well as the Gulf. You then stop at some rock that are loaded with... More
