The catamaran and crew were great. We had a lot of fun on the inflatables, and liked having the other activity choices, too. Disappointed in the snorkeling.

10/10 recommend!

Such a great experience! 10/10 recommend. The boat crew (Ryan, Jacob, and Ashley) and island crew were awesome. We got to sail in the boat a good speed, paddle board, snorkel, have some good drinks, and see dolphins! For those that don’t have kids- don’t let the inflatable obstacle course fool you. It looks like it’s a kids thing but it’s actually fun for adults too haha, but you don’t have to use it if you don’t want to. During the time you have on island to use the obstacle course you can also choose to do snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, lounge on the beach, stay on ship, etc. Great family friendly option for all ages! :)

Great Family Excursion

about 5 months ago
This was the perfect way to break up the week for some family fun. Everyone in the family found something they loved at Shell Island. Snorkeling, Paddle boarding, swimming, playing on the Inflatables, etc. The Captain and Crew were the Best. Always helpful and friendly. They made sure we saw some Dolphins jumping before the trip was over. We highly recommend.

Fun idea

The inflatable water park sounded really fun but we were a little under whelmed with what was actually available. The kayaking and paddle boarding was fun, although, a very small space they ask you to stay in while enjoying these activities. The crew were all fantastic, helpful, and friendly. 5⭐️Crew for sure!

Excellent Experience

about 4 months ago
Our excursion was so much fun! We are a family of 6 so nothing we do is cheap, but we hoped that this would be worth the money. It definitely was! The captain and crew were so friendly and accommodating. Our kids (ages 3-8) and ourselves had so much fun climbing on the obstacle courses, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and sliding down the ship’s slide! Our kids loved that they got to try all these different activities since you usually have to rent it all individually. The only thing we wished our time on shell island was longer. We didn’t see any dolphins but the captain did everything he could to find one, they just weren’t out. He even took us to a shipwreck in the ocean which our kids thought was pretty cool. This was the highlight of everyone’s trip and all our kids said they definitely want to do this next time we come back. Don’t hesitate, book this awesome experience!

I think the price was a little steep for the amount of things we were able to do. The inflatables do not stay inflated and are very hard for ANYONE to use when they keep dropping. The snorkel gear was useless, there was no where to snorkel because the red tide, which we knew nothing about until we got out to the water. The kayaks were the best part of it all.

Another fun excursion!

This is our second year enjoying a day with the crew of The Privateer. The kids love playing on the inflatables and paddle boarding while we relaxed on the shore of Shell Island. Again the dolphins didn’t disappoint making their appearance on the way back to the dock. Don’t miss this fun way to spend the day!

Adventure Tour With Inflatable Waterpark Aboard The Privateer Catamaran

We had fun, not sure I would do it again ! I feel like it would be a lot better to rent a pontoon and head to shell island for the day or how ever long you want!

It was so fun and relaxing. The bartenders and captain on the boat were very nice and helpful. The helpers on the island (Glen and Connor) were also very nice and super helpful when I asked them about some cool places to go for dinner.

Fun for all

We booked the morning trip and had the best time. The snacks and drinks one the boat were perfect for the length of the trip. Plenty of time to play on shell island. The crew was great.

Mediocre time

about 4 months ago
We went on the boat to Shell Island. At the island the water was dark and smelled bad. The best part of the trip was the crew but they really werent interactive with the guest on the boat. On the hour and a half dolphin cruise we saw 5 dolphins; 4 were on the way back to dock. It was supposed to be a 4 hour trip from advertisement and we were at the island for about 11/2hours. The inflatable were not something small children could use without an adult to assist them on getting on. Over all it was mehhh.

So much to do

about 6 months ago
Everything was amazing. I couldn’t believe it had been 3 hrs already. I had a 10 yr old and a 15 yr old and they were laughing the entire time. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I will definitely check out another excursion the next time we come to the beach.

Fantastic Excursion!

about 6 months ago
We took the Shell Island excursion and loved every minute of it! We paddle boarded, kayaked, played on the inflatable water obstacle course, snorkeled and the catamaran took us to the hot spot for the dolphins on the way back to shore! We would do this again in a heart beat! Highly recommend it!

Fun can’t miss boat experience

about 5 months ago
Everyone was very friendly & helpful. Drinks were good. We got to see bottlenose dauphins at least a handful of times & pretty close up at that. They played fun music & have a bar. Shell beach is a small beautiful beach full of hermit crabs & really cool natural scenery surrounding the ocean @ St. Andrews park. Absolutely will not regret booking this trip. I do wish there was a little more time. 3 hrs seemed to fly by

Paradise adventures

Paradise adventures is a great boat to get on. Very friendly staff on boat. Has bathrooms and full bar on board. You go on 3 hr trip to sea island. Has a lot of things for you to do at sea island. And then on way back they go and look for dolphins. I would highly recommend.
