Marco Island: 10,000 Islands Shelling Tour by Boat

2. Marco Island: 10,000 Islands Shelling Tour by Boat

Learn the fine art of shell collecting on the remote barrier island beaches of Florida’s 10,000 Islands, and escape the shelling hordes of Marco Island and Captiva. Make your own way to Goodland Boating Park to climb aboard a boat that will take you to remote beaches that have not been picked over by others. Few shell collectors know about - or can get to - the beaches of these islands, resulting in pristine shelling opportunities. Touring in small groups of no more than 6 people, you will be led by a shelling guide with decades of experience. Learn about the nuances of the tide, winds and locations that affect shelling, and the life cycle and habitat of different species. Your guide even has the knack of finding the Gulf Coast's most prized shell treasure; the junonia!

What people are saying about Fort Myers

We had a wonderful time shelling with 10,000 islands. Our captains were so incredibly knowledgeable and kind! It was so informative and we saw a lot of wildlife on the boat as well! I am so glad we decided to go with 10,000 islands for a shelling tour. The island we were on was very big and spacious and had tons of shells. We had a lot of time on the island itself as well as on the boat watching dolphins.

It was an incredible experience to see the dolphins and to play with them and to see those areas of birds and to walk looking for shells is wonderful…. I will do it again when I return to Florida

The boat ride to island was beautiful. Saw several dolphin families and our driver got them to jump in the boats w as me. Very informative about shelling

Wonderful captain and first mate. Very knowledgeable and professional. Would highly recommend.

We had an amazing experience. Well worth the money.
