No activities planned for June and website says ferry is for sale.I would say this business is kaput unless somebody takes it over.

What a great day with Captain Hal and Mate Will aboard the St Andrews Bay Ferry. Lots of dolphin sightings and history of Shell Island. Hal and Will were very entertaining and courteous.
Our dogs had a great time as well. This was a very fun 3 hours. We would definitely do this again.

We chose this boat because it had less steps for my elderly mother in law who has some difficulties getting around. We were not disappointed. The boat captain and his first mate made our trip one to remember. We felt very welcome and would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting an awesome trip to Shell Island. They were knowledgeable about the area and played a wonderful variety of tropical music while searching for dolphins. And as for Shell Island, I can't say enough for how beautiful and unforgettable the Island is.

Departs Bay Point marina on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.
Takes you to 5 restaurant/bars. You can board at any of the locations it goes to and hop on/off at your will. ONLY $10 pp. We had a great time. Captain Hugh and First Mate Will did a great job.

The places they take you to are lots of fun and good food.

Stay off the roads and let the Captain handle your transportation. Don't miss this one!

My family had a great time on this tour with Captain Hal and crew. They both have lots of knowledge about the area. We were able to spot some dolphins playing too. Very exciting for all ages. Shell Island is a beautiful place to visit. We chose this tour because it is not a drop off service. The boat stays there in case you need to use the restroom or get some shade.
