We loved our experience! We did the shelling and lunch tour on a Tuesday morning. Our guides were fun, attentive, friendly, as well as informative. We were taken by boat to an uninhabited beach with beautiful clear water. We didn't find many shells that day, but that didn't hinder our experience in any way. They provided beach chairs and umbrellas,... More

I need to do it again to be able to give a 10, maybe was on my part, as I has a sea-sick daughter and a demanding 3 years old with me, BUT I felt that the crew was not too friendly nor patient with my situation (making unpleasant faces)... also the lack of family with kids on the boat... More

We booked this tour based entirely on other Trip Advisor reviews, as we wanted to give our 12-year old grandchildren a fun excursion during their visit. This tour did not disappoint. Capt.
