Meet Your Guide

mEET Ali, a Native Floridian passionate kayak tour operator who loves everything about the Florida lifestyle. When she's not leading kayak tours in the beautiful waters around Naples, you can find her out on the beach, searching for shells and enjoying the sunshine. Ali's love for the outdoors and her enthusiasm for exploring the natural beauty of Southwest Florida makes her the perfect guide for a kayak tour. Whether you're an experienced paddler or new to kayaking, Ali will make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience on the water. Join her on a kayak tour and discover the beauty of the Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island, and Naples, Florida from a whole new perspective!


When not actively hunting seashells, Ali might be photographing a Naples sunset or tinkering around her house working on projects. Might even be found wielding a dremel to make a seashell necklace, or crafting seashell print designs in photoshop (she designed all the prints on the shell bags, shoes, leggings, shirts, and hats in the shop).  

Her past hobbies and professions include real estate title work, mobile notary, and real estate photographer - none of which are nearly as exciting or fulfilling as being a full-time shell guide!
