Fun for the whole family
Jun 2021 • Family
My family enjoyed our trip with Island Time! It was my husband, myself, and our four kids ages 9 down to a baby (10 months). It was a fun experience for all of us.The snorkeling was my favorite part, seeing all the creatures in the area that we don't see at our condo's beach. The kids really enjoyed the Stand up Paddleboard we were able to use during the snorkel time. We also loved that there was a slide off the back of the boat! The boat ride was nice, my daughter joined in on the hula hooping on the way back. We saw some dolphins too.

A fun family experience!
Jun 2021 • Family
This is a fun and relaxing family experience. The water was smooth as glass and there was plenty of room on the catamaran. We saw some dolphins nearby. The snorkeling was pretty basic along the shore of Shell Island. Lots of small fish without much color. We also saw sand dollars, crabs and starfish. The kids were loving it. We have snorkeled in Hawaii and this is pretty basic compared to that but still enjoyable.

A new tradition!
Jun 2021 • Family
Amazing beautiful sailing and a great fun crew. Will be back! Had shopped around other ways to go to Shell Island. The Catamaran was definitely the best ride! Not as many people as the other tours and a smooth ride. Saw a large group if dolphins even a baby one, found star fish, shells, crabs and saw a sting ray. If you own your own snorkel mask with the built in snorkel bring it for better comfort.

We had a great time on this excursion. Great staff, very friendly (they even let my kids drive the boat) and we were lucky enough to see several dolphins! Only thing is I wish we had more time at Shell Island because the marine life there is so cool! We would do it again in a heartbeat!
