Overview

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.

First of all, there's no guarantee that you will see dolphins-- and the captain didn't seem too concerned with making sure we slowed down or sped up to see them. The price is $40 per adult and that doesn't include drinks or sandwiches (something that...More

You get what you pay for. 40$ is pretty cheap for two people and the boat crew so very friendly. We got to see dolphins and it was awesome. The snorkeling was poor because the water was dirty and we didn't get to see anything...More

After snorkeling off Clearwater Beach and seeing nothing in the way of sea life (not the beach's problem; it's a wonderful carbonate sand beach, but pretty devoid of much to see underwater), we saw the website for this tour, which made it sound like Egmont...More

If you've ever had a really unforgettable snorkeling, shelling or dolphin experience, you'll consider this experience forgettable. To be fair, it's not 100% the captain or the companies fault. It's just that the places that they take the boats are the same places that everyone...More

I will start with the positives, the dolphins chasing the boat was fabulous and the boat captain went back and made the run again. It was really cool. My rating for the rest of the encounter is not very good. To begin with the departure...More
