  • The guided beach tours listed above are only for the 1½-hour or 3-hour guided beach tours.
  • The guided tour list does not take into account our ½-hour guided beach tours that depart daily, as they do not require a reservation in advance. Find out more about the ½-hour guided tour.

Guided beach tours are critically dependent on the tide, and as such there are some days that do not allow the safe departure of the 1½– or 3-hour guided beach tours. It may still be possible to offer a ½-hour guided beach tour on those particular days.
