We had a blast on the island. We were not aware that we would need to bring all of our beach stuff. And from talking to others on the boat this was a common misconception. Maybe updating the website to include that you can bring these items with you would be beneficial. Even though we were unprepared once arriving on the island we had a wonderful time! Water was great and we found several sand dollar to bring home!
Loved this place sand dollar island and captain made the ferry ride fun
This was a fun & very relaxing trip. We were able to take both of our dogs on the trip. They could play in the water safely & there were lots of sand dollars & shells to find. Captain Dave was an awesome guide. Will do this trip again when we come back.
Just discovered this service and it was great! We will definitely be going back next year.
The ferry was late picking us up from the dock to start with and yet we still had the regular pick up time. It should have been adjusted 20 or so minutes.
We had a great day on Sand Dollar Island! We would certainly recommend your service to others in the future and plan to come back again!
The trip is advertised as if you will find a lot of sand dollars. 4 people found 6. Overall a nice trip but advertisements are misleading.
Everything about this adventure was perfect! The captains were so nice and informative throughout the whole trip. the captains pointed out to us where the best spots on the island would be to find sand dollars and we found a lot in those places! Will definitely do this trip again in the future!
