My family and I really enjoyed our trip. Wish it was longer!! Thank you for having us!
They were right on time, at both ends of the trip, and in control of the agenda. It was very enjoyable: the boat was very clean, we saw dolphins right away, some saw a manatee at Egmont Key, and we saw the gopher tortoises on the key which we were told about. The snorkeling at Ft. Dade ruins was pretty nice; the water could have been clearer, but no control over that! Everything was as advertised, and we would do it again!
Had a great time! We can't wait till our next visit.
The trip was absolutely beautiful and the crew was very informative and helpful. I will definitely book another snorkeling trip with you guys again! The scenery was gorgeous and this was my first time snorkeling. I also love that you provide flippers. Those make it easier to keep your head above water obviously, as I'm not used to swimming in very deep water. Thank you! I will be back!!
Reasonable pricing, friendly crew, beautiful scenery! Fulfilled description of trip.
Very cool for all ages. The captions were so nice and willing to please
My wife & I had a wonderful time on this trip! Our only regret would be not spending enough time at the water on the opposite side from where we were dropped off. It was a beautiful spot! Sewing Dolphins on the return trip was an added bonus.
The captains were great and helpful. The whole trip went off without a hitch and we had a really good day out.
Such a fun day!! Travelling alone with my daughter and felt very safe!! The guys were terrific an knew a lot about the history of the island. Thank you!!
We had a wonderful time. Captain Vinny and first mate John did a great job. It was really fun. We saw dolphins, stingrays, and manatees. We definitely will do this again. Thank you
The crew was great, Vince ? and John. Lots of fun. The only issue was the water was not very clear and was difficult to see anything.
We had a group of 10 in our party ranging in age from 9 to 65, everyone enjoyed the excursion. The staff was awesome and very friendly. The amount of time spent on each segment was perfect. It was great to see the dolphins in their natural environment and having Hans provide us facts regarding their habits. Everyone enjoyed the snorkeling and the island time. We had a great relaxing time on the trip back and the children enjoyed feeding the seagulls. It was our second excursion with Island Boat Adventures and was worth the hour trip.
Everyone was very helpful and entertaining! We definitely recommend it to anyone!
It was fantastic!! The boat was comfortable, and the crew was really friendly. They guided us around a beautiful island. We had fun snorkeling and watching the dolphins. Seriously recommend this tour!
Was a great trip for the whole family. Four hours of boating, snorkeling and Island exploring. Great way to see the area.
Great experience! The Captain was very knowledgeable and made it even more interesting! Very fun way to spend an afternoon!
Had a wonderful time and captain was awesome! Kids loved the ride.
Loved the captain! He made the trip worth it. He was funny and knowledgeable. Had a great time!
Our adventure was amazing! We were able to see tons of dolphins in the wild and the snorkeling was a blast for my 9 year old! She already wants to go again!!!!
It was the highlight of our vacation! Wonder people, very friendly and knowledgeable.
We had a great time! I do wish it was a bit longer. It almost felt rushed at times and I wished to have more time exploring the island. Overall...wonderful experience.
great day, great captain(s) - fun and relaxed. the snorkeling is fun just to get wet, not much to see where you get dropped. well worth the price just for the time on the water and the fun the crew makes it. captain went out of his way to find dolphins on the way back to dock, which is hit or miss at best, but really made a special day out of the whole trip.
Seriously. The most fun day ever - Vinnie, John and Daniel showed us a terrific time. Being a business owner is hectic and having this one day to relax felt like a week on vacation. Thank you!!
The trip was awesome. Snorkeling the ruins was an experience and a half. Time on the island was as much fun. The boat was cool and the crew was knowledgeable, courteous and just plain fun! They even had Coron on board. What more could you ask for?
It was a good length. The kids loved it.
It was a short boat ride in the channel out into the ocean however there wasn't much talking on behalf of the awesome properties in the area. The history about Egmont Key was great though. The snorkeling spot was alright but such a small area for not too much to see. I'm sure what you see is totally unpredictable. We loved walking around on the island. Overall, you can't beat a 4 hour adventure at that cost.
it was cool
This was the best thing we did on our trip to Tampa/St. Petersburg FL. The boat staff was great (Vinny and John), they were very knowledgable about the area, the wildlife and just fun to be around. The experience was like a 3 for 1 - you got a sightseeing cruise along with a snorkeling trip and an afternoon on Egmont Key, which in and of itself was phenomenal. We hiked around the island on a self-led tour and learning more about the island itself. 110% recommend this, best $40 we spent!!!!!
captain vinnie was great! We saw lots of dolphins and lots of fish while snorkeling
The first time experience for me was fantastic we really had a wonderful time.definately will do when i come nack to florida every year. The captain did a wonderful job and may i say very pleasent to look at FANTASTIC TIME IM DEFINITELY RECOMMENDING TO OTHER FRIENDS AND FAMILY..thank you for the awesome time

Snorkeling is my wife's favorite thing to do. We have been on various snorkeling adventures and this one by far had the best crew. Fun was had by all!
Captain Hans and Captain Frank were awesome. We cruised the gulf, snorkeled off of Egmont Key and found a ton of sand dollars and shells. The island exploration was fun, and learning about the history of the island was awesome. We had a great time and would go again!
Crew was top notch and very personable.
