Great for families with kids

This was the highlight of our trip! The kids loved that we got to feed the seagulls Cheetos, we saw so many dolphins and the crew let the kids ‘drive’ the boat. The crew were all genuinely happy to be there and we had a great time!

shell island ferry and dolphin tour

This tour was Fantastic especially for the price!! My husband and I took our two girls (5 and 8) the tour guide ( I wish I could remember his name) was fantastic he included the girls in so much such as blowing the horn, "driving the boat" and making sure we all had tons of laughs. The tour guide made sure everyone had ample time to see multiple dolphins it was the most relaxing boat ride and most exciting ( this was probably one of my favorite parts of the trip. The only disappointment was going to shell island we assumed we would find tons of shells which there was barely any but still a great trip and I would do this again!!
