This is a good tour. Saw plenty of dolphins, guide was fun and knowledgeable (I call her 'the scientist' but forgot her name, sorry!), and the 'island' itself was cool: 1000s of starfish and other critters, shells, good memories for the kids. Efficient too: 2 hours is just right.

It was pretty average. Large boat with cover. Takes a long time to make your way to the sandbar. No shells or sand dollars by the time we made it out there but it was really cool to see starfish sunning and moving about the sand bar

Very relaxing the guides were excellent & the kids enjoyed every moment shared. We done this a couple years ago with the vanishing crew & just had to head out & do it again! Same thing, different name, seen dolphins & enjoined the disappearing island! Seen starfish, sand dollars, jellyfish & a stingray during our walk about on the d/v island!

Our family really enjoyed this tour. We learned a lot about the local history, facts about the area, as well as saw dolphins in the wild. Appreciated the covered boat! The disappearing island had a lot of starfish, and we were given just the right amount of time to do some exploring.

We scheduled the disappearing island tour. We were not able to go on that one - even though it cost more - we did not get a refund. Plus we did not see hardly any dolphins. Worst dolphin tour I have been on.
