Great day!! Beach was beautiful. Narration was perfect. Great shelling. Highly recommend. My 8 year old grandson on vacation asked if we could do it every day!


Seeing mother bald eagle & two young ones learning to fly. Shelling on keewaydin island was fun but would have liked a little more time to shell and enjoy the beach.


Great adventure, saw lots of birds, dolphins, and got a good amount of shells! The crew was very knowledgeable and fun.


Great trip and well worth the money. The drew was helpful and very organized. It’s also the perfect amount of time allotment.


Excellent captain and first mate. Ride to the island was informative. Shelling time of one hour on the island was great. Trip back was nice, with an excursion to the Gulf to look for dolphins. We were lucky and saw lots of wildlife—various birds and dolphins. Highly recommend!


Wonderful tour. Had everything we were looking for! A bit of info about the boats, homes, slips in the harbor area. We saw many different birds of the area and dolphins. A huge assortment of seashells were available and the island was gorgeous! Our guide was very informative and friendly. We loved our 3 hour tour and we would go again!


We enjoyed our Captain Megan and First Mate Braxton. Megan was knowledgeable, kind, and fun and Braxton was helpful and kind. We swam in the gulf, collected shells and enjoyed the beauty of Keewaydin Island.


We enjoyed the boat ride, the information from the captain of the boat, seeing the dolphins popping up out of the water, and collecting shells on a beautiful beach. I thought the description mentioned seeing porpoises which we did not see. It was a pleasant day.


Captain Megan was a delight. Very knowledgeable about wildlife, dolphins and waterfowl. Shelling time of an hour was perfect and beach was not at all crowded. Would highly recommend.


Our tour guides Meghan and can’t think of his name, sorry (he wore live bottom boots if that helps) 🤣😂 we’re great!!! Very knowledgeable and made the trip super fun! Definitely worth it! We saw lots of dolphins, osprey and got tons of beautiful shells! 🐚 No need to bring water, they supply unlimited bottles and a good size bag for your shell picking! You are on the Island for about an hour so pack your camera, sunscreen and enjoy!!! FYI, Bathing suit is optional, I took a quick dip, the water was warm but rough! 😎😎😎
