And I found some really great shells. The shuttle folks explained a lot about the area and wildlife and gave advice about the best places to look. It was really helpful that they loaned us an umbrella and snorkeling gear. I'd like to go back again.

Quick boat trip to shell island. Shelling is ok. Our second time and still haven't found large shells. This trip dolphins surfaced near boat & captain stopped for a while to let us watch. Not a bad deal.

But it is rather costly! Especially when you are taking a few children...plus, you are stuck on the island for a minimum of 2 hours! Not good if it gets too hot, storms, or kids get cranky!

No need to worry about storms. We watch the radar very carefully and if there is any chance of storms we tell our guests to return to the pick up spot immediately and we'll be there to take them back to the dock. We also offer boat rides for those who prefer not to spend time on the island. Sounds like that might have been a better option for your family and that is a less expensive option as well. Thank you for your business.
