We also love this tour. The only downside was the effect of the ride tide on the shell island shoreline and dock, but that can't be controlled by the tour company. the tour itself was amazing. My 9 year old had a little bit of fear with the boat rocking, but the captain invited the kids up to "drive the boat" and that seemed to help ease his fears and totally made our day.
