We have been using Shell Key Shuttle a couple of times of year for the last 5 years and will never go with anyone else. The staff is always so friendly and knowledgeable. The price is just right if you consider all you get not to mention what it costs the company to run the boat. Can't wait for our... More

My husband and I brought our two boys ages 2 and 4 as well as our 9 year old nephew to Treasure Island for a short getaway from the Midwest winter. I found this shuttle on the inside of a brochure in our hotel lobby. I knew the kids wanted to go on a boat and I knew they wanted... More

Took a ride on shuttle to Shell Key today. What a fantastic little trip. Not only was Captain Joe and mate Collene very competent and safe but they were very knowledgable, willing to share, helpful and very nice. Highly recommend taking the trip.

Shell Key Shuttle is a great way to spend half a day with kids if you are into looking for unique ocean shells, sand dollars or having stingrays swim around you while you wade waste deep. The shuttle leaves pretty much on the time they say and get you to the remote location that is not terribly far from the... More

We took a sunset cruise with Nancy and Kiven. Nice people and a pleasant way to spend some time on the water. We thoroughly enjoyed the commentary and tour. I would definitely recommend the activity for families with kids.

Got there first thing (10 am) and found tons of shells. The shuttle provided lots of extras like masks, snorkels, and beach umbrellas at no extra charge. Great value for explorers who enjoy a quiet beach.

The island was enjoyable. We walked along the shore for quite some distance And found lots of shells and a spot with lots of sand dollars. The shuttle itself is pricey at $25/ head for a 10 minute ride. Wish they gave us the shell guide prior to the trip, not on the way back.

We took the sunset cruise--great trip! The hosts were knowledgable, both about wildlife and real estate. The dolphins were a highlight!

The Shelly key island was really great! We went with our toddler.. And it was really a great time! Of course, you have to search for your treasure.. But that's part of the adventure. We went on the first morning (10am) shuttle and came back on the first return (1215pm). The owners of the shuttle were courteous and helpful and... More
