1st FL Family Vacation Memories!
Sep 2021 • Family
This was our first family vacation to Florida with our three kids (ages 10,13,14) And we wanted to make some memories. We made so many memories on the catamaran and the water activities! It was amazing! The crew was awesome, beverages were wonderful, other guests were great and it’s something that we will always remember! Thank you Paradise Adventures for doing such a fantastic job!!

Worth every penny
Aug 2021 • Family
The crew was fantastic - very personable. We thought this was worth every penny! There’s something for everyone - even our friend who isn’t into water activities. He played cornhole and had a great time as well.

Fun experience!
Aug 2021 • Couples
This was a fun experience! The crew was awesome, the inflatables on the water are a lot of fun, the stand up paddle boards were fun as well. Ended the adventure with some dolphins in the water! Definitely a 5 star experience!!

Florida owes me nothing!!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Boy let me tell you, this experience was nothing short of amazing. I booked this for my 34th birthday and I felt like a kid again. I enjoyed everything from the hilarious Captain Justine, to the boat ride and seeing the dolphins to the water sport activities. I'll be back but next time I'm bringing the kiddos. Thanks a million!!

BEWARE of the water activity adventure
Aug 2021 • Family
BEWARE 1st time tourists in PCB, FL. Don't pay for the water activity adventure.
You're taken to a DIRTY lagoon with stagnant, brown water filled with hermit crabs, and seaweed! The air floats are old, and hard to climb onto; rope ladders would have been great if they were attached.
The pontoon boat was overcrowded; NO COVID-19 standards were in place, so I wore a mask the entire time. The pontoon boat crew was just a taxi service. They didn't assist us with snorkeling, or teach us how to use the equipment. There was 1 worker, on this DESOLATE ISLAND, who manned the canoes, and paddle boats, but didn't give us a class or instructions on how to really use them. I also like to add a note concerning the bar on the boat..if you are going to serve alcohol, serve complimentary bread too!
Out of all 8 family members that came to the "adventure " only 4 of us actually got off the boat to experience the "fun". The other 4 were too afraid to swim in the dark, smelly water. The only reason I give this activity 1 star is because my family was able to see dolphins on our bumpy, and nauseous way back from the lagoon.
I hope you don't think I'm a Debbie Downer but you must know the truth.

Ok experience
Jul 2021 • Family
The captain and crew were all fantastic, they made the trip extremely fun. We were however disappointed by the water activities. There really weren’t many inflatables and the ones that were present weren’t in the best of shape. The catamaran ride was nice, and the captain made sure to spend extra time watching dolphins, which was fantastic. Overall our group of 9 felt this tour wasn’t worth the drive in from Seacrest where we stayed.

Good crew, horrible location, save your money
Jul 2021 • Family
The boat ride was pleasant and the crew was nice. But the water was nasty brown. Water attractions require you to be very physically fit to get on in the water and no child could possibly climb on them by themselves. Not everything advertised was there. Due to the water conditions, snorkeling was much to be desired. If you ventured deeper, it became almost black. I would not do this again.

Not worth the money
Jul 2021 • Family
We would not book this trip again. Catamaran was nice but the area they take you on shell island is on the bay side not the gulf side. Water is not nice on that side if you are planning on snorkeling. Kids enjoyed the inflatables but got bored quickly. On the 3 hr trip you spend about 1 1/2 hrs on the island and 1 hr cruising up the bay to gulf to look for dolphins. If you want to go to shell island for clear turquoise water, shelling and snorkeling find a different tour - this is not it.

family-friendly fun
Jul 2021
we enjoyed our experience. the crew were fun and friendly. I think they found the good balance between keeping things family-friendly without being boring. my child has sensory processing disorder and enjoyed the trip. the inflatables were too hard for my elementary school-aged children to navigate , despite them being fairly athletic for their ages. it worked out fine for us because the adults from another family helped balancing the floats. i would suggest having at least one adult if not two in the water to help the kids if you have young ones. teenagers and adults seems to get on much easier.
captain was very considerate in navigating around the waves to keep the boat as steady as possible. he made an extra stop when we spotted dolphins to ensure everyone got to see them. appreciate being able to tip through venmo. pleasant experience and would recommend.

No banana boat but nice crew
Jul 2021 • Family
It was overall a good experience. Loved the boat and the bar. But shell island itself wasn’t the best. It smelled like sewer. My kids and others struggled to climb on the inflatables but they still enjoyed themselves. No banana boats were there
