My husband and I had an enjoyable time walking on the island and cooling off in the gulf waters. The captain was funny and knowledgeable of the area and we were able to see several dolphins, including a pod of multiple dolphins. Well worth the money to cruise the area and enjoy some time on Shell Island.
