Day trip to Egmont Key, off St. Petersburg, Florida. Watch dolphins jump and play in the surf behind our mono-hull boat. They jump, twist, & spin so close you can almost touch them! Our boat stays with you the entire 2 1/2 hour stay on the island. Explore this tropical island with its abundant wildlife and ruins of a Spanish-American War fort. Snorkel gear is provided for those wishing to snorkel the sunken ruins. Reservations recommended by calling.

Solid 4.5 stars. Super cheap entertainment, captain/crew is really friendly. We were able to see some dolphins playing behind the boat. The boat ride to Egmont key was just relaxing in its self. Definitely recommend.
