It was a wonderful trip. Captain was easy going and informational about the area. We saw dolphins and baby pelcians. Highly recommend the sunset cruise.

Me and my fiancé really enjoyed this. It's just a short boat ride to the island & there are a ton of shells! There's shells everywhere on the sand so we thought it would be more challenging to look in the ocean & found a huge conch shell! That's where the best ones are! The guys who took us out... More

We were looking for something new to do with the family. This was the 1st time we went to shell key. It's a short ferry ride from the dock in pass a grille. They provide beach umbrellas and face masks with or without snorkels. We had fun. Our 3 year old just played on the beach, but the 10 and... More

Nice little key 10 minutes off of St.. Pete beach area. Not much to do and okay shell collecting. Short couple hour excursion- better for younger children. Snorkeling was okay but not much to see.

This was a fun little adventure including a boat ride. I liked that beach umbrellas are provided as well as snorkeling gear. People running the shuttle were very friendly. We accidentally went inside the shop labeled shell shuttle and the clerk inside was very grouchy. For this reason we avoided buying anything inside. I do recommend the shuttle for all... More

We did this trip with our kids. It was not what we expected. The trip is very short, maybe 10 minutes max. A bit spendy for such a short ride to the island. If you walk along the island to the right of where they drop you off, keep going and follow the path along the beach (you have to... More

We took the 10 am shuttle out and the noon shuttle back. I suppose you can pack a lunch and spend all day, but a few hours was enough time for us. It's a nice beach, but the one by our hotel was quite nice, too.

We have used the shell key shuttle twice now to get to our happy place! They are safe and courteous. We really enjoy shell Key. Our 12 and 10 year old girls love looking for sand dollars, and found a few the other day. Highly recommended.
