Escape the mainland and join Coastal Cruises for a perfect day of Dolphin Watching and Shelling in St. Pete! Our three-hour tour starts with a slow 45-minute dolphin-watching cruise along the intercoastal waterways in St. Pete amidst the multi-million dollar waterfront homes en route to one of our favorite local shelling islands in Florida.

Once stopped at either Shell or Sand Dollar Island, guests will have up to an hour and a half to go ashore and enjoy the day the locals’ way swimming and exploring at one of these pristine shelling destinations!

Our boat has plenty of shade for those who aren’t quite as adventurous, so feel free to stay aboard, pick the crew’s brain on the local St. Pete area, take in the coastal views, or enjoy the satellite TV featuring your favorite game!

Don’t worry, we have plenty of adult beverages onboard to purchase to quench your thirst! The bar includes beer and RTD cocktails to enjoy.

"My favorite part was seeing the dolphins up by the boat. Noah and Hunter made this a great first time experience for my family. Took use to some beautiful scenery for photos. Bonus they played great music."

"The trip took us to Sand Dollar Island were we collected a few shells and watched the sunset. Then we rode the coast line to the Skyway Bridge. The ride took us past lovely homes all lite up against the water. At the bridge they stopped the boat at just the right spot and took pictures of us. On the ride the owners entertained us with local history. The boat was immaculately clean and comfortable. It was nice having a bar available. I would recommend this experience to anyone wanting to make a great memory."

"This was a wonderful boat cruise captained by two capable and friendly young men, Chad and Connor. The boat was immaculate. The scenery on the cruise was exceptional with dolphins, gorgeous sunset on a private island with flocks of birds and a couple of sand crabs."
