Scorching sun, swarming bugs, no safety precautions - no go!

Beauty yes but be warned...need your own full army attire, deet, helmet and life vest! Shells check.

We were a group on 10 so the only ones on our tour. Family members ranged in age from 16 to 70's. Very windy the day we booked so the boat ride over to the island was rough and we got a little wet from ocean spray. The guide Mark was very patient with our diverse group and extremely knowledgeable... More

If you decide to go, make sure you ask if you are going to the Portsmouth village or just going over to shell on the beach. They did not tell us that we could not go to the village until we were on Portsmouth island. Due to massive flooding and clouds of mosquitoes in the village, we could not go.... More

My husband bought this trip for me for my birthday. It was an awesome time! We love shelling and had great success with unusual shells. The ATV tour was fun and the village was neat. We have already recommended it to our family and friends!

Just go and do this! It is so cool exploring this island by ATV! You hunt for shells, swim, walk the village, take a neat boat ride...all the while hearing interesting facts about nature & the history of Portsmouth island. What could be better?

My wife and I took the ATV trip and lives it! The village tour was not available due to being over run with bugs and standing water but that's not we wanted to go. We wanted to go over and hit the private beach with the ATVs and just be out on the secluded beach. My wife loved the unique... More

Our guide was so laid back and easy going it just made for a super relaxing day. I will say we were warned about the bugs but we did... More

I made reservations to go to Portsmouth in May for my August vacation. They were aware it was just me, myself, and I. They said in May via telephone that was fine, but would I be willing to go with another party as it was easier for them. I said that was fine. I never heard anything from them on... More
