Moderate Activity Level


A more intimate dolphin experience, just a small group, our Dolphin Boat Snorkeling Tours are 2 hours in length and offer you the opportunity to swim with dolphins, explore Shell Island, and snorkel for sand dollars. Get your own private tour. Our captains are experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to finding the best spots to see dolphins.

Boat Tours are fun for the entire family, no matter what their age. When you want to relax, take in the beautiful views, and go swimming with our most famous residents, the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins, a Lagoon Pontoons boat tour is just what you need.

This is the trip you want if you are looking for an up-close and personal encounter with the dolphins, not just a sightseeing tour; it is a much more intimate encounter. It usually just ends up being your group on the boat, so we can cater the tour to do whatever you want to do. We don’t have a set route we mandate; you can choose the activities and how you spend your time on the tour.

Our captains will offer plenty of options of how you can spend your time to ensure you get the most enjoyment out of your dolphin boat snorkeling tour. Some of those options include snorkeling the grass flats of Shell Island or the jetties. Maybe you would enjoy a walk on the beach where you can find sand dollars, starfish, crabs, fish & birds of all kinds during this amazing eco tour!

Looking for less of a tour and more freedom to visit Shell Island, the Jetties at St. Andrews State Park, and other amazing locations on your own? Take a look at our pontoon boat rentals or our double pontoon boat rentals for the ultimate in family fun!
