Beautiful Day with Gail and Crew

Beautiful Day with Gail and Crew

It was an enjoyable day with Gail, Billie, Patty and Beth.  Gail has been shelling the islands for many years. Billie is always a breath of fresh air to have on the boat. The ladies enjoyed the boat ride as well as the walking and talking on the beach. I enjoyed talking with Gail about shelling. Next year we will continue the quest for a lions paw.

I have been a Shelling Guide to Cayo Costa State Park since 1995. Many people know me as the Shelling Guide and Captain with Captiva Cruises over the past 20 years. In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.
