The “Snorkel & Dolphin Shell Island Cruise” is where you can embrace whatever the day brings! It is 3 hours of fun in the sun! Your day could include an amazing wild dolphin encounter, watching dolphins and learning about their habits, or possibly swimming in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico with dolphins! (Please read dolphin disclaimer below.) Then we’ll take you to the waters of the beautiful St. Andrews Bay where we will find the day’s best spot for more snorkeling fun.

We will anchor in approximately 5 feet of water where you can snorkel for seashells and catch a glimpse of the underwater world, learn about local sea life, or relax and float while you take in the sun. You can also wade through the shallow water onto Shell Island to hunt for shells or try out the stand-up paddleboards. Our brand new fast water slide can be a fun high-speed access into the water or take the staircase!

We always hope the conditions will line up just right, so we are able to do all of the above, but the trip itinerary is based on the weather and water conditions for your safety and enjoyment.
