The best captain and his first mate! They were safe & friendly! Saw dolphins, LOVED SHELLING & seeing the wild life. The beautiful homes and boats (yachts) were a plus!

Absolutely the best experience anyone could ask for! Captain Joey and First mate Taylor were both very nice and answered any and all questions. The ride out of the marina was just as beautiful as the beach (Keewaydin). The main purpose we went for was to shell on the island and it absolutely surpassed everything we had wanted. You have an hour ride to keewaydin and during that hour you can see dolphins and birds and we even saw a bald eagle. Once you get to the island they give you about an hour and 15 minutes to shell or swim or do whatever you would like. We had a little time left over and we headed back early due to everyone ready to head back. We took the last hour to cruise through the mangroves and take time to see any wildlife with the remaining time we had. Absolutely abundantly filled with shells on the beach. They give you a complimentary shelling bag in case you want to collect shells and let me tell you, my mother and I almost filled both of ours up with plenty of beautiful shells. We were hesitant of going on the tour because of the price, but it was absolutely worth it. We got to see dolphins right up on the boat got amazing shells and spent the day out of the hotel. Anyone and everyone will enjoy this experience anytime of the available times. Captain Joey and First mate Taylor, thank you for an amazing day!

Great tour! Guides were kind and knowledgeable. The island is stunning and so many beautiful shells to discover. We had about an hour on the island- wish it could have been 1.5 hour- it went by too fast. Saw dolphins on the way back. Definitely recommend this tour. Take the morning option during summer before it gets too hot.

We loved it !!! My parents and I came to naples since almost 10 years for the holidays, we discovered this cruise 3 years ago but because of the covid we didn’t came here so for this holidays we finally do that and honestly that was awesome, we saw dolphins and some kinds of birds and the Captain Marty was very knowledgeable !! The beach was beautiful and there’s a lot of shells !! In conclusion, do that if you can !!

Captain Joey and his assistant Pat were funny and informative on the cruise out, and when they weren’t talking the music made for a chill boat vibe. The beach was beyond beautiful and the shelling was unmatched by any location I’ve ever visited! Cocktails available for purchase and plenty of water for free. A must do when in Naples!

We had an amazing time! We found so many beautiful shells. We saw a mother and baby dolphin, an osprey eating a fish and many other birds. We would definitely go again!

If you are looking for a nice boat and shelling experience in Naples book this tour. We chose the 9am spot (which I highly recommend if you are visiting Naples in June) and had just the right amount of time to enjoy the private beach, swim in the warm ocean water and gather our seashells. We also had the opportunity to see dolphins, beautiful mangrove trees, eagle nests and wild birds while we made our way from the dock to the beach. Thank you Eco Shelling Cruise for a great day!
