Jim and Cassandra From Florida

¬†I don’t often get the privilege of having a native Floridian on my boat. Jim and his wife are from North Florida. Jim has collected shells as long as he can remember and he has a good memory, at least for shells. Jim found a beautiful Lace Murex and other finds as well. I relished our conversations of different shells and talked about the shells we look forward to finding in the future. It was a great trip with a Native Floridian¬†collecting shells. Thank you Jim and Cassandra.

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.
