Smoothing sailing to a beautiful and serene beach sanctuary. Staff were all friendly and informative. I would highly recommend this trip to my friends and family.

Great value. If you enjoy nature, seashells and ocean wildlife, this is the way to go. You can stay 2 hours or all day, however long you wish. Island is a sanctuary, so some beaches are off limits, pay attention to the signs. Also, no facilities, so use those provided at the dock before you depart. Cleanest I've seen. Amazing... More

We have been to Shell Key on a couple of our trips to St. Pete Beach. The Island is a natural beauty. We have seen stingrays, dolphins, turtles, all kinds of sea life and birds. If you like to shell hunt this island has all kinds. It is best known for locating sand dollars. Take a pic-nic lunch, your sun... More

We went to shell key island via shell key shuttle. Well worth the 25 bucks. We collected shells and about 40 sand dollars. The crew were very friendly they turned off the motor to let the dolphins pass. We saw sting rays, turtles, and all kinds of fish. Best experience hands down.

$25 per person gets you the ride, shell bag, umbrella, and snorkel equipment. Totally worth it. Bring towels and water. We loved it!

The crew is great. Gave us all the info we needed. On the trip out we saw dolphins and the captain stopped and let us watch. The island itself is beautiful and natural. Undisturbed beauty. We found tons of beautiful and unique shells and several sand dollars. We saw a stingray in the water. The only bad thing about the... More

This was a trip well worth it! Very informative, relaxing and a great way to experience shelling. We will most certainly do this again. Nancy and Kieven were very friendly and made the trip very nice.

Very nice, convenient and easy to get on and off...just a touch expensive for a 400 - 800 meter ride, else this would be five stars

If you want an affordable shuttle to go to Shell key this is the way to go!!! For $20 you get a little boat trip (10 min), umbrella if you like, shell bag, snorkel set, or just mask, parking pass (so you don't have to pay meter)! Shuttles run from Merry Pier at 10:00 am, 12:00, 2:00. You stay as... More
