Nick was a fantastic captain. He had a great sense of humor and has a local flare. He was great at keeping the lines baited and you never had to touch a bait or touch the fish he was really good at his job. Fishing was a little slow today but I'm sure my son says they don't call it catching for a reason.

Captain Chris responded to my my email request almost immediately and I booked an inshore trip for three. Captain Nick was our skipper for the trip and was very patient and pleasant. The fishing wasn’t very good that day but we still had a great experience. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone.

This was probably one of the best days that we have had in awhile. Captian Chris & first mate Nick were exceptional! Prompt in the morning, prepared, and showed us a great time. Chris knew the best spots to put us on the fish, caught our limit, did some catch and release, enjoyed a beautiful boat ride, and were quite entertained. This trip exceeded my expectations. Thank you!!!! Must do again.

Wow!! Booked Captain Chris for a full day deep sea fishing trip when my daughter and adult grandson came to Florida to visit. Was hoping for a great day of fishing. Weather did not cooperate - COLD and windy but Chris did not disappoint! We caught fish one after another even though we cut our time to half day due to weather. Came home with lots of fish and great fish stories of how none of us got sea sick. Great day! Sure we will book again!!

Chris took our family out fishing for sheepshead in Tampa, and that's most of what was reeled in (along with some snapper, grouper, and grunt – no complaints about those yummy fish)! The service and knowledge of Coastal Outfitters Sport Fishing is unparalleled. Visiting Tampa and planning to fish? I wouldn't hesitate to book another charter with these guys!

I am making this review as an avid angler and retired Navy Veteran. Captin Chris has the ultimate local knowledge, seamanship and best equipment( all high end Shimano) on the market. Scheduling was easy and we limited out on grouper early in the day. I travel and fish a lot of charters and his was one of the best I have been on. If you want safe, fun day with great memories and laughs you should choose this charter.

What an amazing captain Chris has become over the years! I have fished with him in many different waters and he always catches fish. His trustworthiness and skillful adaptation to fishing is only exceeded by his knowledge of boating safety. I highly recommend Captain Chris for any boating excursion!

I’ve grown up fishing in Florida but always impressed to learn and catch something new with Captain Chris. He knows the spots, the tackle, and the time to make it worthwhile. Best to go with him if you want to make a day worthwhile. Thanks for the great times!

What can I say about this fantastic organization? I have fished with Captain Chris in the waters of the Tampa Bay Area, the Florida Keys, and the Bahamas. Every trip was unforgettable! What Captain Chris brings to the table in local knowledge is unrivaled. I hate waking up early, but on days I know I’m fishing with the fine people of this organization the morning can’t come fast enough! Will continue to work with this organization for all of my boating related needs! Captain Chris knows it all and does it all! You won’t be disappointed!

Florida Shelling Tours

Shell Key Snorkeling Tours


A little further south is Shell Key Preserve. This is a fantastic place to go shelling, as the name suggests. As you walk along the beautiful clean sand, you’ll collect sand dollars and other sea treasures to take home.

Shell Key Preserve is a 1,800-acre island preserve that protects sensitive marine habitats and includes one of the county’s largest undeveloped barrier islands, mangrove islands and seagrass beds. Some parts of the preserve are no-human areas, explicitly reserved for wildlife. But bring your binoculars and you can see hundreds of incredible birds.

Types of Shells You Might Find on Our Florida Snorkeling Tours

Sand Dollar Shells

These beautiful carved-after shells are beautiful and when exposed to the sun gain a white textured pattern. Their unique star-shaped marking makes them one of a kind. The animals who live in the shells, called tests, are found worldwide and give sand dollars a very different appearance while alive.

Sand Dollars are sold in shops and online, but there’s truly nothing like finding a good one yourself. Many people believe the star markings are a reference to Christ – a representation of the Star of Bethlehem. It’s said that if you break open the shell, you will find five small bones representing ‘Doves of Peace.’ These are actually the five jaws of the test’s mouth. Nevertheless, these shells often hold a lot of value to collectors. During our Snorkeling Tours in New Port Richey, we’ll hopefully find some that you can display at home.

Other Shells You Might Find on Our Florida Shelling Tours:

  • Calcio Scallop – Bright colors make this a favorite find. Diverse and beautiful.
  • Cerith Shells – Commonly found on sandy bottoms, are also referred to as ‘Horned Shells.’ They can grow to large sizes and make popular ornaments.
  • Cockle Shells – A large intact cockle shell is a prize find, while smaller ones can be used for necklaces.
  • Conch Shells – A bright orange beauty.
  • Coquina Shells – Not much bigger than a dime, these shells come in different styles, colors, patterns and finishes.
  • Florida Spiny Jewelbox – Found throughout Florida’s coasts, this thick and heavy shell has a striped pattern.
  • Jingle Shells – Their name comes from the jingly sound they make when shaken. They come in different varieties, including wrinkled and polished.
  • Junonia Shells – A gorgeous and rare find, covered in spots.
  • Lighting Whelk Shells – These often large shells were once used as tools by natives.
  • Limpets – With over 35 different Limpet species in North America, these are very common.
  • Murex Shells – Also known as ‘Rock Snails’, these stunning shells have various shapes with long ‘tails’ and spikes. They’re hard to find in good conditions due to their fragility.
  • Olive Shells – These small shells have a beautiful, glossy finish.
  • Spotted Slipper Shells – AKA’ Boat Shells’, look like an old sailing ship when turned upside down.
  • Tulip Banded Shell – The intriguing patterns always make these a pleasant find.
  • Turkey Wing Shells – Very easy to identify as they look like outstretched wings. Often small.
  • Wentletrap Shells – Extremely intricate shells. They’re stunning and prized by shell collectors!
  • Worm Snail Shells – These tubular shells look like noodles stuck to a rock. Their unique look makes them a shelling favorite and are very common on reefs.
