Great trip!
May 2021 • Couples
My husband, sister-in-law, and I went on the snorkel & dolphin cruise. It was an incredible trip and we had the most amazing time. When we arrived, we were a bit nervous as there were so many people waiting to board, but once on the catamaran, everyone had lots of space. The captain & the two sisters working that day were wonderful. It was very clear that they're a team and they enjoy their job & working together. The rum island punch that is their specialty is delicious & they aren't greedy with the alcohol.
The water was absolutely beautiful that day. We saw several pods of dolphins and even a shark! As the water was pretty cold in the deep water, we didn't snorkel, but we got out and waded in the water and walked on the beach. When we come back again, we will definitely go on another trip. Next time, I'd really like to try the sunset cruise, but we'd love to do the snorkel trip again, too.

Wear slip resistant shoes
Apr 2021 • Couples
Though we did have a fun expensive, there was really nothing to see besides a few hermit crabs and one star fish at shell island.
I would suggest that some sort of slip resistant material be put on the stairs between levels, I took a nasty fall down those stairs ended up with scraps and bruises on my back and elbow

Glad to hear that you were able to find some hermit crabs and a star fish. Sometimes the sea creatures really make you have to hunt them down! However, most times they are pretty easy to find. I am truly sorry though that you slipped and injured yourself on the stairs. We will definitely take your feedback into consideration to ensure customer safety for the future. Get well soon!

I go to PCB all the time, but this trip was really special. I decided to do something different and Island Time didn't disappoint. Made me feel like i was on a real vacation, hundreds of miles away from home. The price is very reasonable. While you cannot take drinks aboard, you can buys snacks and drink (alcoholic and non) and prices for those were also very reasonable. The Captain, Deck hand and bartender were all super nice and interacted with the group on board. Our trip was 3 hours, we saw lots of dolphins. The snorkeling was nice to get out and swim...we saw a few hermit crabs. They have a slide of the back of the boat which was fun and a couple of paddle boards (very difficult lol). I took my two teenage nieces out for a girls trip doing this cruise and it was a amazing.

Just OK
Apr 2021 • Friends
Weather was a little chilly (NOT anyone’s fault), but glad the sun was out! We did not see many dolphins, but I didn’t feel like the tour guides “looked” very hard or very long. Most of our time was spent at Shell Island, which I was surprised, didn’t have a whole lot of shells I could find on the beach for free. The snorkeling wasn’t what I was expecting either. I’m used to snorkeling near rocks or jetties where fish and marine life hide, not open water, murky waters at that. They said it was because of the rain then previous few days. Overall, the trip was more of a boat ride to an undeveloped island for a picnic with some rum and orange juice thrown in.

I am very sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, the discoloration of the water is caused from the rain. More times than not our customers/crew are able to find wild life when snorkeling/sailing to Shell Island but we are sorry if you were not able to see any! The crew and I hope that you can give us another try so that we may give you the experience you were hoping for.

We had the best time on this tour! The captain and deckhands were so nice and really interacted with the guests! We found some pretty cool shells, hermit crabs, and our 3 year old even caught a starfish on shell island! We are coming back in August and we’ll definitely go again!
