Heath, Ryan and Sam took care of all of our needs on our trip to Shell Island. We tried kayaking then spent the rest of the time snorkeling off of the island. Had a great time!

There is one on the boat. The boat stays at the island so you have access the whole trip.

No, there is not a height requirement. The price difference is probably just to give families a little break monetarily. I would just call and ask. The staff is great!
