I have been going to Marco Island for 36 years and over those years have taken many shelling and boating excursions. Our trip with Sea Shell Boat Tours and Samantha and Eric was by far the best Marco Island experience I have ever had! Our group was 5 women, all celebrating our 50th birthdays together and we wanted to make our trip memorable. Thanks to Eric and Samanta, we did!. We were greated by Samanta and Eric and immediately felt at home and like we were visiting old friends. The boat is absolutely beautiful, pristine, clean and very comfortable. Eric knows exactly where the dolphins are and we had them following our boat multiple times. We went through the mangroves, around goodland then landed on a perfect island for shelling. Our trip back brought us along the beach, past the hotels and the residence beach and back under the Jolly Bridge where we saw more dolphins. This was an experience we will all remember for the rest of our lives. And we have Eric and Samantha to thank for it. I highly recommend this for people of all ages. We will be going again everytime we are back on Marco Island or Naples. THANK YOU SEA SHELL TOURS!!! With sincere thanks....Martha, Donna, Libby, Karen and Sheila!

Myself, Wife, and 2 kids (ages 6 and 8) had an awesome time on Eric and Samantha's shelling tour. Marco Island was a lot of fun, and this was truly one of the biggest highlights. The kids loved all the shells they came away with, but the most exciting part was when Eric got some dolphins to chase the boat. The kids went wild! Eric and Samantha were also very helpful in recommending where to eat and places to go while we were there. You've really got to do this, especially if you have kids.

Our group of six spent a wonderful 3 plus hours with Eric and Samantha on their Marco Island to Naples boat trip. The boat was comfortable and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sights of the waterfront mansions and the serene mangrove backwaters The stop at Keewaydin Island provided us the opportunity to walk the most gorgeous beach in SW Fla. Dolphins were seen the entire trip and we even had a baby and mother follow our boat jumping in our wake.

This trip is a MUST when visiting Marco Island. Eric and Samantha were outstanding "hosts"! There is no better way than seeing the sights of Marco/Naples from water!

I can't think of a better day that I have ever had on the water! Setting up the tour to our liking was effortless with Samantha! She was so friendly and attentive to all of our wishes for the day! The location is perfect in Marco Island, and no worries about parking/traffic. The boat was beautiful and plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. I loved that it was so affordable that we could have the boat for just our family and have more of a private tour of Marco Island from the water. Captain Eric and Samantha know so much about the area, wildlife, surrounding islands, and we saw several dolphins, a manatee, and sea birds. They went above and beyond to make us comfortable and to show us everything that we wanted to see. I highly recommend them, and can't wait to book my next tour.

This is the most fun I have ever had on a boat tour. Not only do they take you to the best shelling you will find on this side of the gulf they also take you on an amazing boat ride. On the boat ride Eric is very knowledgeable about many things on Marco island and knows how to get the dolphins to follow the boat. I have never seen dolphins so close right behind the boat while playing in the waves. Eric and Sam are two of the friendliest people and you would not regret going on a tour with them. Best adventure you can have on Marco Island.
