Amazing time!

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!

Fantastic tour! We got an amazing bag of shells that my 10 and 13 yr old loved collecting, we learned about the houses along the channel and laughed with our awesome funny tour guide! Great day!
Terrific way to spend a morning.

Completely worth it
Mary_E, Jun 2022
I loved this store. The guides were very friendly and informative and the tour was interesting. The beach was my favorite part and I didn't realize we would only get about an hour and a half on the actual Beach but it was completely worth it and I would completely recommend this to anyone
Need more interaction
Robert_K, May 2022
Got to see a lot of dolphins. Our Captain could have been more interactive with everyone. He seemed to be too busy with his first mate, never really got anyone else involved in the tour. The tour itself was good
Great trip
Brian_A, May 2022
Pure Florida Eco and Shelling Trip was amazing! The staff was both knowledgeable and amusing. I learned so much about pelicans, osprey, eagle, manatees and dolphin. During our trip we saw all of these. The shelling on Keewaydin was super to my trip to Sanibel two days later.
Great experience.
Gary_T, May 2022
Captain Mark and his deck hand were great. They answered all my questions and gave lots of comments on area and what we were seeing. You could tell Mark was well experienced as a boat captain. We had a great experience on our excursion.
Best morning in Naples!

11/10 recommend the shelling ecotour

The shelling tour was a blast. My wife and I were able to see everything from beautifully made and manicured 20 million dollar homes (and boats!) in the Naples area then almost immediately we’re taken I to an entirely different world, surrounded by mangroves, bald eagles and all sorts of other wildlife. The captain narrated the trip and has an abundance of ecological knowledge and a pocketful of dad jokes to keep things fun. Once we hit the beach from the bay side, a thirty second walk through the trees led to white beaches and crystal clear waters. It was amazing to see how different the two sides of the island were. We “shelled” for about an hour and saw a massive manta ray while there (apparently super rare to see in that area) so I guess we got lucky. I was so I to everything that the shell picture I took when I got home is the only picture I took. I’m glad I saw my wife’s phone out most of the time so I think we’ve got some documentation, haha. I will absolutely do this again when I come back to visit next year. Things to bring: a towel, a snack, a mini hand fan, haha

Capt Joey and his crew were great. We saw so Cary many dolphins. Tip for getting great photos. Take videos and screen shot them. The shell beach was so very very full of wonderful shells. They have a small bar on board. Credit card only. We will definitely do this tour again. It is for ALL ages
