After a safety briefing, our guide, Logan loaded us onto our wave runners and off we went. Logan had informed us that we were going out during the busiest time of day, but we saw plenty of dolphins… and other boats. We rode our wave runner’s to shell island and spent some time picking up shells and listening to our guide tell us the history of the island and the area in general. After leaving Shell Island, we took a general tour of the area on the wave runner’s. Logan was an awesome guide and was very easy to deal with and very knowledgeable about the area. The wave runner’s are new models and very well maintained. We will most likely visit them again on our next trip.
We are a family of four 2 teenage boys and the wave runner dolphin tour did not disappoint, our tour guide Logan was friendly and fun and took us to see dolphins and dive for sand dollars. We also visited shell island, this trip is not for the faint of heart, but if you enjoy speed, clear gulf waters do not miss this adventure!
My family of 4 did the 2 hour Jet Ski tour. It was WONDERFUL. Our guide (I think his name was James) was super nice. He was very patient with us old, slower folks until we could get up to speed! Three of us had never driven these before but within 10 minutes he had us trained & going full out. It was terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time. We came up on a pod of dolphins, including a baby. It was fun to get to just sit and watch them surface and explore around us. We had 6 Wave-runners in our tour plus James. We all got personal attention when/if we needed it. We made a stop right up on the beach at Shell island and went for a swim. We got caught in a lovely cooling rain for about 10 minutes on the way back. I at first thought 2 hours wouldn’t be long enough, but it was perfect. Our booties and legs were tired after 2 hours like we’d been horseback riding!!
Perfect day. We would certainly do it again. We thought that prices were very reasonable as well.
I, my wife, and daughters decided to rent a pontoon boat for half day. Great time had by all. We found lots of sand dollars and spotted many crabs an sea urchins. We even saw a few sea turtles. We only spotted dolphins a few times around the boat and it was deep water so no one wanted to go in. Great value for the money spent. We will definitely do this again for sure. Thanks for a great day.
Our family does the Dolphin and Shell Island tour every year when we visit PCB.. This year though we decided to branch out and rent a Pontoon Boat from them instead.And, Oh my this was the BEST decision we ever did.. The tours are so fun and the Captains are always great but it was so nice to take it out and do our own thing.We went to some of the same areas as we have before and found shells< beautiful ones, crabs, I even caught a few Starfish… It only had one down fall and it was —-WE ONLY RENTED FOR 4 HOURS!!! Next time we will be doing ALL DAY!
Rented a pontoon all day. Beautiful boat, easy to maneuver, radio on board, plenty of storage. The owner was completely awesome! If you have children then you may not want it all day but it was perfect for us. You wont regret it!
I took my 7 year old daughter on this trip. Our captain was James. Very knowledgeable about where the dolphins would be and how to see them the best. We saw many dolphins and were able to get in the water beside them. Great experience.
It was everything we hoped for and more! We got to swim with the dolphins repeatedly! Our captain was great! He allowed us to direct our adventure and gave us all the direction we needed.
