The Jetty Boat Captain from Fishermans Wharf made the trip fun and informative. We had a blast swimming in the surf and found a lot of cool shells. A lifetime memory due to the Great staff at Fishermans Wharf. St. Joe's reminded me of Padre...More

Love taking the jetty boat to st jo island. Everyone that works there is great and helpful. They have ice for purchase and carts for rental that are very helpful in taking your gear to the island

After a great brunch at Virginia's on the Bay, we decided to take a trip on the Jetty Boat for a Dolphin Watch cruise. Although a small operation, there was a small glass windowed, air-conditioned waiting room, a small gift shop area, and bathroom available...More

This was a horrible experience! We went to St. Joe's Island to find some shells. We walked a couple of miles and didn't find a single shell. The boat only comes every hour, and for the first few hours, that is only if somebody else...More

We took the Sunset Dolphin Tour (4:30pm-5:30pm) for the kids to possibly see some dolphins swimming around the harbor. The captain was funny and he didn't talk the whole trip, which was nice! We saw lots of dolphins and heard a few stories about the...More

I ran in 5 minutes before the last boat to St. Jo's left at 4:00 and was able to get 4 tickets for my family. The guy at the counter was very nice and let me skip in line to make sure we made it...More

This was a very low key tour, but fun and reasonably priced. There was no narration, which was a bit disappointing, although the skipper was more than willing to answer questions. We covered quite a bit of the area during the hour, all within the...More

One of the best hidden treasures while visiting Port "A" is a visit to San Jose Island. The only way to get there is the Jetty Boat which takes you across the channel. The ride is cheap $6 and runs on schedule. It is like...More

It would be best to call for their hourly schedule, but as I recall, they go out on the hour. You can check their website also.
