“Sip” back and relax on a dolphin-watching, sand dollar-collecting, sunset tour!
A memorable adventure you and your kids are sure to talk about for years to come!
Departing two and a half hours before sundown, the cruise combines the memorable Sand Dollar Island Dolphin Tour with a sunset ride back to St. Pete Beach. Watch for dolphins, collect sand dollars, and then savor the picturesque sunset with a relaxing beverage.
This three-hour tour ferries you out to Sand Dollar Island, a half-mile sand bar situated off the coast of Fort Desoto and Shell Key preserve. Stroll along the beach looking for sand dollars and other awesome shells you won’t find on the coastline beaches. Fill your bag with horse conchs, shark eye shells, and tulip shells to create a one of a kind collection.
Once you’ve got your fill of shells, explore the shallow, crystal blue water. With no current, it’s perfect for novices and kids to snorkel.
