Dolphin Watch Cruise with Snorkeling to Shell Key
Then head towards the Gulf of Mexico, to the pristine Shell Key Island Wildlife Preserve. Venture into the island's beach, and take a stroll along the white sandy beach as you collect unique, fascinating shells. Spend an hour or so on Shell Key Island, and snorkel in its three-foot waters off the beach. It's a great way to find live shells and conchs, and snorkelers are often visited by rays and manatees during warm-weather seasons.

What a wonderful trip to Shell Key Island. Captain Joe really made the trip special with his knowledge of local history and area wildlife. He went out of his way to make sure that everyone on the trip had a great time. I could tell that he really cared about what he was doing.
Tim was great! Took time to wait several times for dolphin sighting which we spotted! Very patient with the kids too! A must do for your vacation!
There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed the trip. The captain and helper were very informative and helpful. We saw a lot of dolphin and some stingray. The children on board loved feeding the seagulls. Snorkeling was fun. The island park was interesting. Thank you for a great time. We were in the back of the boat so couldn't hear everything that was being said. It would have been nice to have somewhere to change after the trip, but we managed.
Friday February 3rd we took the 2pm dolphin watch cruise and found dolphins in the bay. The boat was comfortable, had a comfortable ride, and it was great to be on the water on this beautiful 77 degree, sunny day. We found and followed dolphins. It was fun and we highly recommend it.
