Great crew, very knowledgeable, made the trip fun. A highlight of out vacation!
Best time ever! Mike and Dean are two standup guys! Knowledgeable of the area, great customer service. Couldnt ask for a better crew, or cruise!
We wish you would have offered a discount as we did not go snorkeling, maybe an email that morning. Also, I forgot to get the gatorade we paid for :( The Captain of the ship and his crew were very kind and helpful at all times ~ even through the awful wind we had to travel through while getting us back home!
Great time on the two island tour with Brad and Mike at the helm. Super to see the dolphins at play up close and just the right balance of island time exploring Fort Dade and searching for beautiful sand dollars at our second stop. Also had a close encounter with a horseshoe crab - not something we come across back in the UK! Excellent trip guys - thank you.
Nice caring crew, all trip organized perfectly, they made my day!
The employees where very friendly and they answered all our questions. We got to see dolphins and the first island was full of historical artifacts. I enjoyed snorkling.
Not only were the two guides very knowledgeable and upbeat, but the overall atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing.
We had an amazing experience, our captain and bar tender/tour guide were very accommodating and informative. It was great!
We had a lot of fun on this adventure. A little bit of everything for a fun morning tour. The 2 man crew was great! Nancy C.
Everything was great, loved the crew. Very friendly, informative and helpful. One thing I suggest that you do not advertise it as snorkeling, there is barely any fish and due to murky waters in the Gulf you cannot really see anything, how about shell hunting it would much more appropriate.
The entire experience was top notch. Really cool tour and activities. Would go again
Wow Captain Mike and his helper was excellent Very nice guys with everybody will be back next year Boat was nice and clean...
We had the best time and the crew was amazing! Will definitely do this again!
Mahi Mike and Dean were very professional and I felt safe on their tour. Also, we spent a lot of time looking at wildlife which I think everyone enjoyed!
The boat captain and Dean were amazing. Very friendly, very accommodating and knowledgeable. They made the experience wonderful. Thank you, thank you!!
The tour was very well timed. The crew was informative and very energetic. Our whole family enjoyed the whole experience.
Awesome experience! Great staff made for an unforgettable time!
Great crew very knowledgeable and safe
We had an amazing time on this cruise! Would recommend it to anyone and will likely do it again on another trip to St. Pete Beach.
Excellent tour and great service. Very respectful of all customers.
IT was everything we hoped for.Very Friendly staff and the tour on the Fort was fantastic as well as seeing the dolphins and boat tour. Shell island was a lot of fun and we have so many great memories of snorkeling and while on the excursion. 10 stars for sure!!
Dave and Mike were an awesome crew, they ran a very clean and professional vessel and kept the adventure fun, relaxing and educational. Would definitely recommend to others.
The SunCoast water sports had a cabana sat up nex to our hotel. We used them for parasailing and a 2 island boat tour and was very satisfied with both. The staff is extremely friendly and down to earth. The boats were all clean and well maintained. We seen dolphins several times with this company and got to collect shells from both Egmont and Shell islands. I believe our guides names were Mike and Dave in the 2 island boat tour and both were amazing. They told us several facts and information on the hotels, the islands and the history of St.Pete while letting us watch the dolphins. They brought the boat right up to the edge of the beach to pick us up and let us stay out about 2 hours while snorkeling. The name of the boat we was on was the Compass Rose I believe. They had any type of drinks you could think of from water to mixed drinks, which one was named after the boat itself. I had my 3 year old with us and he loved ever minute, very family friendly. It was worth every penny.
The guys on the compass rose we're super friendly and knowledgeable! We did the two island tour. The snorkeling on sand dollar island was fun. The history in eggmont key was great. The most AWESOME was all the dolphins we saw along the way!! Our Captain stopped the boat and they came close to the boat and played together. It was well worth the money and an unforgettable experience!
Had a great time aboard the Rose and the Captain and first mate were great! They were soooo friendly and willing to answer all the questions we had about the wildlife and Florida history!
All in all it was a fun time for my boys and I. For the price the tour of Egmont was short, barely any time to soak up the history. With short legs and a bum back it was extremely difficult to get into the Compass Rose from shore. The Crew was wonderful, helpful and on the upbeat with enthusiasm.
The overall experience was fantastic, staff and captains were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The whole tour went smoothly and was enjoyable for the family. Will go again next year! Thanks!

Capt Mile and Dean were a pleasure to sail with!! Fun and sun!! What more could you want?!?
Super fun..kids loved it! Knowledgeable and helpful crew!
Staff was great! Tour went incredibly well...saw dolphins and even manatee, including a pup. While my girlfriend and I chose to wade in the water, our 3 teenagers loved the tour on Egmont Key and the snorkling was an incredible experience. This is on our must do list next time we visit. Thank you Suncoast Tours!
You guys are the greatest! Mike was a great captain, knowledgeable of the area and history, and keeping safety first in our trip (always watching the approaching storm). Dean was fun and inviting, and also on top of any and all safety concerns on our trip. He lead an awesome tour around Egmont Island! The guys took us on a day of fun. And adventure we will hold in our hearts forever! We will definitely do it again next time we're in St. Pete's! Thanks!
A brilliant day at sea & in the sun. Captain Mahi-Mahi and Dean were FABULOUS guides for our dolphin watch, Egmont Island & Shell Island visits, and tour of Pass-A-Grille area.They obviously very passionate about dolphins & local history & preserving the beauty of the sea-life, not to mention the lively banter between them. Sea was calm, weather was beautiful and I never thought I'd see two pods of dolphins, gopher tortoises, and more than one sand dollar on a beach -- all in one event. A great time was had by everyone on our boat, and it was very good value too. I would not have wanted to miss out on this one for anything & I think all those on this charter trip felt the same way.
Captain and 1st Mate were GREAT! They went out of their way to make sure everyone saw sea life. Both islands were beautiful and the trip was just about right on the length.
The two guys, Jake & Brad, I think, did a great job explaining g things and not making it boring. They allowed us to watch the dolphins and snorkel around the area. I would recommend it to anyone.
Great captain Very informative
Had an amazing day from start to finish the captain and his first mate were very welcoming and very informative the islands we went to were beauitful ..snorkling was lovely and with a full bar and snacks on board it was great .. would recommend this trip ..we came all the way from Dublin Ireland to Orlando and took 2 days out of our to visit st petes beach .. It's an absolute must and this boat trip well I could have stayed on the happily for another 4 hours ..
Great trip! Highly recommend. Mike and Dean were great hosts! Would do again!
The staff was very helpful and easy to talk to . You could tell the captain knew what he was doing so we could relax and enjoy the day .
Captain Jeff and Dean were great. Had a great time with them.
