What we chose to do
We found TripShock on Google when we were looking for something extraordinary to do with our little family. and remain within a certain budget.
We booked our ferry trip to Shell Island just the day before. The ferry was only minutes away from our beach side resort, was a short 10 minute beautiful drive.
My husband, my mom and I all agreed that this was the best option for us because of our children being 3 and 8. He enjoyed making sandcastles and exploring, while she snorkled and found shells. It was a great, cheap day to remember! Lots of great memories made that day.
Getting to the dock of the ferry was just 10 minutes away from the Holiday Inn Resort beachfront hotel. The drive was beautiful along the way.
The staff was great, both kids got to take the wheel. He even had a snack for them when we were picked up.
The anticipation of walking away from the boat toward the beach was exciting, then stepping onto the beach and seeing only 2 other people there (mother and son) was an amazing feeling knowing your free for the day. The kids played at their will, had a picnic, took family photos there, swam, snorkled, and even seen a few dolphins. This place was absolutely stunning. We spent days in Orlando for Disney then drove to Panama for a few days and this by far, was my favorite day. Hoping to go back again in the future.
This activity worked well for us because everyone of us, of all ages (age 3 to age 57) enjoyed the peaceful day and it was very reasonably priced within our budget.
