The trip was a lot of fun! The snorkeling could have been better but that was no fault of theirs. It had rained heavily the day before our trip and the water got all stirred up. The ride was enjoyable...feeding cheetos to the birds, watching the dolphins, etc. we really loved Egmont Key where my daughter found lots of shells.... More

The weather was not very cooperative but the crew made the best of it. It was an awesome day with lots of dolphins and over an hour of snorkeling. Will go back out with them again.

Where do I begin? This was one of the greatest "touristy" experiences I've ever had. I'm local to Florida, grew up in Fort Lauderdale and live in Orlando. Took a vacation to St. Pete to knock some bucket list items off, and as an aside, my wife and I decided to go do the boat tour/snorkel trip offered by Island... More

My wife and I had an extraordinary time! The captain team of two were very knowledgeable not only about safety while conducting a boat tour but also about Egmont Key and the wildlife on the island and in the water surrounding. Would DEFINITELY recommend Island Boat Adventures to anyone inquiring.

My daughter had never been snorkeling and this was a great introduction. Plan like you're going to spend a day at the beach; swimsuit. towel, snacks, however, Island Boat Adventures provides most anything you need. The Captain and First Mate are knowledgeable and entertaining. The cruise, snorkeling, wildlife viewing and island exploration were great! Just the right amount of time... More

I had never been snorkeling in the US so I had not very high expectations but this cruise was amazing! We saw dolphins and while the snorkeling wasn't as good as Caribbean sites, it was still a really cool experience and still fun for a Florida activity! My only complaint is that they advertised this cruise as being a decent... More
