I was a little weary not being from the area, but it was a nice clean boat with an excellent crew. They took us on an amazing trip I would highly recommend.

This was a great experience. The trip was great fun. Captain Vinny and Joen were informative about the area and animals. The island stops were fun. The length of time at each spot was good. I would highly recommend this company and this trip.

My sister and I enjoyed a fabulous 4 hour excursion with Captain Vinnie and John. They were full of information about the surrounding areas and history of the islands and keys. We enjoyed shelling and exploring Egmont Key and learned some history of the island. Make sure to wear shoes if you are exploring the island so you don't get... More

Great time. Captain Hans and his first mate were wonderful. Snorkeling, tried it but weather wasn't cooperating so he took us to a local little spot to shell. Found over a dozen nice sand dollars. Saw dolphins. Pointed out houses of famous ones and knew the area and willing to help you with any questions you had. Totally recommend booking... More

Have done boat snorkel tours all over Florida, Hawaii & Caribbean. This was the worst. Snorkel place had very few fish & water was not clear. Beach stop had beach covered with dead fish and a terrible odor. This was in October after a hurricane had been near. Perhaps they should have cancelled, rather than provide a bad experience.

The Captains were really welcoming and fun. provided info and entertainment on the ride to the dive site. We jumped in to explore the ruins and saw a few fish. Exploring Egmont key was awesome, the light house and old fort were fun to take pictures with, the beach was beautiful. Loved that we could bring our own beer and... More
