Captain Tammy was awesome. She took us to some GREAT shelling spots. We were the only ones on the islands. Tammy is so nice and friendly. We never felt rushed. There were refreshments included on the boat including cheese and crackers. Overall a very fun day. I would definitely do it again. Here are just SOME of what we found today. Thanks Tammy!!

Tammy was great and well prepared. She was very knowledgeable and I had a great time with some good shell finds! We saw lots of wildlife and also the Cape Romano domes!

We had a FANTASTIC day w/Tammy, she was ready and waiting for us on time, we went to beautiful islands and saw an incredible variety of gorgeous shells, some amazing manatees, and the whole day was relaxing and such fun! Tammy is patient, knowledgeable and has a perfect combination of professionalism and being down-to-earth. She has heaps of interesting stories, and is so easy to chat with. We'd do another tour w/her in a heartbeat!

Dear Nancy and Richmond,
It was a pleasure having you both on our Private Tour and your photography skills are incredible! Thanks so much for sharing the pictures you took of the Osprey and Manatee. Since you both have traveled all over the world it was really fun talking to you and thanks for the book recommendation.
May you always have shells in your pockets and sand between your toes!
Warmly,

Treasure Seekers Shelling tour was the best ever! Captain Tammy was very kind,informative and considerate. Her boat is a beautiful,comfortable and brand new craft. Seeing the dome houses was amazing, and WOW the shelling was unbelievable! I could not pick them up fast enough!!! We got 21 varieties of wonderful shells, and highly recommend this tour. You will be glad you went, and you too will only be only able to describe it as an AWESOME experience!!! These are a few of our favorites:

We went out on Memorial Day with Captain Tammy and Jeff. Best shelling tour I've taken!!! My bag was full of shells and Captain Jeff carried them back to the boat. He also shelled with us. I would highly recommend them to everyone and hope I am able to do it again soon.

Lucie,
What a Shelltastic haul you made during the shelling trip! It was my pleasure to guide you and be of any help during your tour with us. We do pride ourselves in providing a concierge service and want to make our guests as comfortable as possible and if that means helping carry bags then I'm your man!
We hope to see you both again and may you always have shells in your pockets and sunshine on your face!
God Bless,
Capt Jeff Everts
