Visit the remote beaches and islands on a relaxing and fun Florida Shelling Trip from Double R’s. This three-hour shelling trip starts in the heart of the Florida Everglades. The southwest Florida waters of the Gulf of Mexico are famous for shelling. Shell collectors can find dozens of varieties of mollusks, seashells and fossils.
Our boat will stop on beautiful Whitehorse Key and you will have an opportunity to depart the boat and do about one-half hour of shelling along this beautiful beach. It’s an amazing opportunity to discover some of the sensational shells of the Paradise Coast.

We had an awesome day on the water with Captain Dave. We saw manatees, gators and birds. No dolphins this trip, but that’s the chance you take. We had 30 min on an island and we were able to get some great shelling in. We would highly recommend this tour. Thanks for the trip Dave.
We had a perfect day out on the boat!!! We saw manatees, dolphins, birds, and shells galore. Captain Mike was very friendly and we had a great time sharing stories. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone!!!
We rode with Capitan Dave who was very knowledgeable about the manatees, dolphins, and alligators. He took us to an island to shell and pointed out turtle eggs that had hatched just recently. We saw a pod of dolphins and he encouraged them to play with us for as long as we wanted before taking us to the island to shell. Captain Dave also let the two teens on our ride take the wheel for a bit and even let me drive for a while. Great captain and a wonderful tour!
We weren’t sure what to expect but Captain Dave exceeded our expectations! There were six of us aboard the pontoon-style boat – part of the ride was leisurely as Dave hunted for the elusive manatee and then helped us to spot several dolphins and encouraged them to play in our wake. A stop on an island for shelling and then a different route back as Dave was determined to find some gators. He didn’t disappoint and we saw several! Beautiful day trip.
You’re likely to see Florida wildlife on your Double R’s Shell Tour. Our shelling boat has spotted manatees, alligators, dolphins, and turtles, as well as many species of rare and endangered tropical birds.
Some of the tropical bird species include the Ibis, Egret, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Pelican, and the American Bald Eagle. Our Eco-Tour is another way to enjoy the local wildlife.
