Great way to spend a few hours! Captain Sam took great care navigating the boat thru all the heavy boat traffic on a holiday weekend. Captain Rick is an entertaining and informative guide who clearly loves nature. I learned something knew from him about mangroves. I highly recommend this trip!

It was a great time. The crew told us before we left that the trip before us did not see any dolphins and the island was so busy they could not dock. Our trip saw several dolphins, one even threw a fish into the air. We also got to dock on the island, and I was able to get several great shells and 2 of my friends went swimming. We went for my husband's birthday, and they even had the entire boat wish him a Happy Birthday. I recently did another boat trip in the same area this one was much better.

Best shelling trips and dolphin watching trips anywhere. I have been on Odyssey cruises about 4 -5 times a year and love it every time. Rick is the best guide you could ask for; funny, very informative, and just plain fun.

Had a great afternoon cruise with our family who were visiting from MA and CA. First Mate Rick was entertaining and informative as always. We had a couple drinks onboard and enjoyed our time on the sandbar looking for shells. This is always my go-to outing for our visitors!

Captain and skipper had great personalities! We took the 12:15 cruise and we were concerned whether we would see dolphins that time of day. We saw many swimming in pods. They gave everyone 25 min to go shelling on the island beach. The skipper, Nick gave us good information about sponges and the surrounding area.

We are required to arrive 30-45 min prior to departure, however, there is NO seating while waiting. There's plenty of room under the Tiki hut to add benches. I would have given this experience 5 circle rating had there been seating. Several others felt the same way while waiting to depart.
