We went out today and had a blast. There was a party of 3 that were late and Captain Jessie handled it well. As the trip was only supposed to be 90 minutes, it was very important to be there on time. After a short trip to "the spot" that he takes his guests to, we were off and collecting. Let me tell ya, this was well worth it. I can't believe the amount of shells that we found -- conch, clam shells, sand dollars, etc. etc. It was an overload of shells. Those looking for shells or just a nice few hour getaway will love this. It was long enough leaving you wanting more, but not feeling rushed or that horrible feeling that you didn't get your perfect shell because you ran out of time.
Jessie did a great job of pointing out where certain types of shells are regularly found and even collected a bunch as a show-and-tell back at the boat (and even lets you take home what HE found!).
We ran a bit over on the tour because of the family that arrived late. I thought it was cool that he didn't cut the trip short because of it. Class act!
In fairness to Jessie, who books other trips, people should really heed the advice and arrive early.
GREAT JOB!!!

What a wonderful experience , I live in Naples Florida and have been to the beaches for years, It was so nice to be the only group on the barrier island we went to. Reel Kind Fishing shelling trips are incredible, the tour guide Jessie was very knowledgeable about the ecosystems and mangrove islands, gave a great talk about the life cycles and feeding habits of the animals that lived in the shells we found, and we found a lot of shells. I would definitely go out again with Reel Kind Fishing,

I've lived in Naples for 3 years and wanted to do something different. Since I love shelling this was a great choice. My family and I enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend it! Bonnie and Jesse were wonderful. Can't wait to book again.

What an incredible way to spend a day! If you ever wanted to walk along the sandy shores filled with shells and sand dollars, this is the trip to take. From start to finish, this day could not have been better. We were greeted by the most friendliest Capt. Gregg, who gave us 100% of his time and could'nt do enough for us. The boat ride alone, was worth the trip, capturing such beautiful sights along the way. Many thanks to Bonnie, who arranges your trip for you, plus you receive a follow up call from her, to be sure that you enjoyed your trip. Highly recommended, and now.....very addicting! Thanks Reel Kind Fishing for being real kind folks!
