For a relaxing
and enjoyable evening, make reservations for a one and a half hour Sunset
Cruise sight-seeing through residential waterways and the pristine barrier
islands south of Pass-a-Grille. $25.00 for adults $12.50 for children12
and under (plus tax). Parking passes for the meters may be purchased when checking in for the shuttle.
The Sunset Cruise is aboard the same 49 passenger Shell Key Shuttle catamaran. Reservations are required as departure times vary with the seasons - usually sunset cruises begin approximately one hour before the actual sunset.
Remember to bring appropriate clothing if the evenings have been cool. The wind chill on the water is often greater than on land. Bring snacks (even dinner if you desire) on the cruise; beer and wine may also be brought along.
This tour includes five residential islands and takes you from historic
cypress beach cabins to modern multimillion dollar mansions. Several unspoiled
barrier islands are also toured, with numerous shorebirds, usually dolphins
and (in summer) sometimes manatees. Narrations, questions and answers
provide an educational and sometimes humorous aspect to each cruise.
