Briandavidgriff on TripAdvisor said this about the Island Adventure:

“Great Adventure! Half-day island/sandbar adventure was amazing. We snorkeled for about 30 minutes and saw some pretty awesome marine life. Second part of the trip was the best part. We got to chill on a sandbar, saw dolphins, and kayaked around a mangrove island. Captain Bill was incredibly knowledgeable and you could tell he cares for the marine life and the ecosystem. Garrison and Isaac were great guides as well. Cheers!”

“My husband and our friends did the ultimate adventure and we had a blast. Captain Zak and his crew were awesome. Captain Hans and Hannah made our first parasailing experience one to remember.
