What you'll do
First we'll pedal kayak to the best shelling spot - Kice Island! Our ride is a 2-seater Hobie pedal boat (foot-powered). We have three (3) tandems at our disposal, so I can accommodate up to five (5) guests per tour. Leisurely pedal along as you photograph or record the the dolphins and birds along the way! Our destination is about a 30 minute kayak trip from the launch! We'll take the scenic and usually calm backwaters to the island, and once there have a snack and start exploring! As long as its empty of a living creature, feel free to collect as many shells as you can carry back! I will show you how and where to shell for the best treasures - and any and all shells in my bag at the end of tour are given to my guests! If you're a party of 3 or more and are interested in starting the tour earlier or later in the day than my specified availability, just message me and I'll try to accommodate!
