My husband and I took our two children (8 and 11) on a 3 hour shelling cruise last week because shelling in our beloved Sanibel was lackluster. Bonnie handles all the scheduling, and she was fantastic about helping up work around weather and the tide...More

Captain Ryan “Patrick” was a wonderful tour guide! My sister in law and I learned things we didn’t know about shelling and would go again to look for some new shell gems in the future with our families!

The day spent with Reel Kind on the 10,000 Islands was worth every Dime! Captain Ryan was knowledgable, friendly and professional. We found awesome shells, made new friends and saw a spectacular sunset. Highly recommended!!! Thanks, Ryan and Reel Kind! ❤🐚😀

We had a great time with Captain Chris fishing. Even though the weather changed overnight and temps dropped, he was knowledgeable to know where to go and what to fish for. We ended up with about a dozen keepers. Great trip, thanks!

The cost per person depends on the length of your trip and on the number of people on your boat. If you give them a call, they can tell you exactly what the cost is. They do book up very quickly, so if you are interested, I... More
