“snorkeling, dolphin-watching, shelling”

Tropical Island Getaway - Enjoy Snorkeling; Dolphin-watching; Shelling; Exploring a Tropical Island with an Abandoned Fort and Lighthouse on a 1/2 Day Trip Egmont Key in Tampa Bay. Our mono-hulled boat attracts a number of dolphins on the way out to the island. The dolphins love to jump; twist and play in our wake... so close you can almost touch them! Once at the island; you will be provided with snorkel gear (if you choose) to snorkel the underwater ruins of Fort Dade; a Spanish-American War era fort which has been long abandoned and parts of which have tumbled into the Gulf creating underwater reefs. After snorkeling; we will move the boat to the other side of the island where you will be able to visit the historic lighthouse; wander through the trails and additional ruins of the abandoned fort; hunt for unique sea shells; and discover and photograph the incredible wildlife of the island including brown pelicans; sea turtles; gopher tortoises; manatees; and numerous sea birds that visit the bird sanctuary on the island.

THEY LEFT US! I talked to the captain several times when we were on our way to confirm our reservation. We had a 930 reservation. They gave our seats to walk-ups and left port 15 minutes early.. 3 crying kids sitting in the parking lot watching the boat pull off early... I called them and they were rude and really didn't care that we didn't get to go. I was really lucky to find Hubbards Marina in De Soto Park or our day would have been completely ruined, which by the way, was a nicer boat, very nice staff, and a little less expensive.
