I had a fun time with them today. There were a few dolphins in the water, saw plenty of birds and collected some nice shells. What you find can depend on weather, waves, season, etc but there were plenty of shells on the shores here....More

Excellent time! Tons of shells, sand dollars, birds and dolphins. Definitely one of the best things to do in pass-a-grille beach and worth every penny. The captain's have the best job on the planet!! Will absolutely be going back. Thanks for a great time!!!

We had a fun time walking the beach and playing in the waves. Snorkel, shell bag and umbrella was included in the price. The kids were able to see dolphins while we swam off the island.
