Took a trip with our boys on a beautiful day. Saw a lot of dolphins along the way, snorkled the ruins, found shells, and fed the gulls on the way back in. They even let my boys drive for a while which they loved. Great crew!

Fun trip for my wife and I. Vinny and Eric were great hosts and very knowledgeable. We got to see a manta ray, sea turtle, and some dolphins on the way back. It was pretty breezy and a bit choppy, so we couldn't snorkel at the gun mounts, and visibility was poor at Egmont Key - but that's not their... More

Hans was our captain and had so much knowledge of the ocean and the history of Egmont Island that we explored. They had two large coolers full of ice for our drinks and snacks that we brought. The catamaran was clean and there was lots of sitting room. We saw several dolphins on the way back to the dock!!! An... More

This is a must do. Great trip, good snorkeling, lots of dolphins, professional and nice staff. Well worth the price. A good amount of free time to explore Egmont Island. Would do again.

Fun ride out to Egmont Island, saw some dolphins on way out, snorkeled off the island for a while then had about an hour to explore the island. Boat was very nice, clean. Crew was friendly. It was a good value -$40/person (plus tip) for about a 4 hour trip. Would definitely recommend!

This was one is the best decisions we made on our trip. Ride was safe and fun, the Captain provided a lot of information about the local area as we went to and from Egmont Key. Saw dolphins and manatees, fed the flying seagulls, and Egmont Key was very cool. I would definitely do this again!

Mike who was our captain was a pleasure and we went all over looking for wild life such as sting rays, Dolphins and manatees. We stopped at this amazing sand bar that had tons of shells and no one on it. It was... More

Went out with I believe Vinny and (really blanking on his first mates name), and had an amazing experience. We saw giant schools of Tarpon on the way out to the island which was awesome. Then when we got to the Island (more like rock ruins) we got a good day for snorkeling. It was my first time but they... More
