Overview

Our best value tour. Imagine shelling on islands that are NOT picked over daily by 100's of people. With your naturalist guide, learn not only about individual shell animals, but learn "how to" shell from our Shelling Guru. This is an excellent "hands-on" experience for the young and old alike. Your naturalist guide will facilitate parents and grandparents wanting to be the educators.

This is not a typical preprogrammed tour. Every day and every tour can be different, so be sure to discuss with your guide the possibilities. This tour is approximately 3.5 hours in duration and departs twice daily at 9:00 and 1:30. Advanced reservations are required. Don't forget your cameras!

Thank you Capt Joyce for a great trip….great shelling, lots of birds, in depth knowledge and a love of the area were awesome but the highlight for sure were the dolphins swimming and jumping behind our boat for a couple of miles, not once but twice!!! And Joyce was the best!!!

Kim and Joyce were the best guys I’ve ever been with ever ever ever. We learned so much and had fun got wet looked for shells had free time very very good trip educational and fun saw dolphins everywhere. And do you know how shells are formed?? We do. One more thing don’t forget bring your cooler bring your beer bring your beverages they’re very flexible here and lots of fun wear a hat. Bring a towel. Honestly there are many tours this one is worth every penny and it wasn’t that expensive these ladies are professionals.

So many favorite parts to our trip. Multiple dolphin sightings, stopped at two islands for shelling, and great photo op at the dome homes!! Joe, the Captain and first mate, Kim were very knowledgeable of the wildlife and really made the trip enjoyable.

The Dolphins were up close and personal. You have to bring your own water, drinks, and snacks. The captain and first mate were great. I would recommend this activity.

What a wonderful excursion!! Captain Joe and Molly were a delight. We saw dolphins, sharks, stingrays and tons of birds. We did some shelling and saw the dome houses. We’ve done a few of these excursions anytime we go on vacation. This was my husband’s favorite!! This was an awesome way to spend the morning. Would do this again.

Joe was great captain. There were 3 of us and 3 others who were together so the smaller boat was perfect.We stopped at 3 islands for shelling & Joe told us where to find best shells. Also made sure we had a great view of the dome houses.Amazing to realize this unique area off the coast of Marco & it's history. Highly recommend.One point I would make however, is getting on and off the boat at the Goodland Boat Park would not be easy for anyone with physical handicaps. We were 3 folks all 73 y.o. We were able to make the climb up & down (even with joint replacements) but could see that it could be difficult for some our age.

Captain Joe was great. He made the trip fun and informative. We enjoyed swimming in the gulf, shelling and experiencing many of the natural wildlife.

Captain Seth was a great tour guide! We were extremely happy with his knowledge of the area, foliage, and wildlife! He did all he could to steer us out of a storm and got us back safely with an amazing adventure! We will do this again and highly recommend taking this tour
