Your half day (4 hour) adventure includes dolphin encounters, snorkeling, shelling and sunbathing.Â On the voyage to Egmont Key we will be searching for resident bottlenose dolphins.Â They love the deep wake our boats make and surf, jump and play so close you can almost touch them.Â They are just as curious about you as you will be about them.
Egmont Key offers opportunities to snorkel in clear waters about the ruins of Fort Dade, see the working lighthouse built in 1858, and explore the remains of the small town inland that housed Army personnel manning the massive artillery that protected Tampa Bay from Spanish battleships.Â Egmont Key offers some of the finest white sand beaches and the best shelling in the area â€“ sharks teeth, sand dollars and starfish are often found.
