We were led to believe this would be the best snorkeling trip by Blair at the St john's pass store front. So we shelled out the $140 plus for our family of 4. The captain, who was very rude thru out the trip, told us it was too windy to snorkel by the ruins, took us off the beach near a bird sanctuary, gave us fins and a mask ( no flippers) and told to snorkel in the grass/sandy area near shore for 15 min before we were told to get back on the boat. Not exactly the great snorkel trip as promised and no reduction in price! To be fair we did see dolphin on our trip, but the captain's snide comment "there, we got that out of the way" and his treatment of his crew rubbed me and my family the wrong way. We were promised by Blair to find the biggest shells. Honestly you can find these at Sanibel island for free. The way they handle the payment of the trip is terrible and humiliating. Basically if you want to take a boat ride in an old crappy boat and see dolphin with a grumpy rude captain who doesnt realize that YOU are his bread and butter, and want to get shells, which you can get for free elsewhere, and don't really care about snorkeling, then this is the trip for you! The good reviews on this site are PROBABLY happy customers, although I personally spoke to other folks who had never been on a trip with such a rude, unfun captain, who were so disgusted, but do not want to take time to post a review. Buyer beware!
