We had a great time taking the Shell Key Shuttle over to Shell Key this week. The ride was only a few minutes from dock to shore and the crew was friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely take this shuttle again.

I have taken the boat shuttle to the island 3 times and its a lot of fun. The kids have fun looking for shells. They provide free shelling bags, snorkel gear and umbrellas to use on the beach.
