Seashell Collecting with Shaun and Kevin

Seashell Collecting with Shaun and Kevin

Great day of shelling with Kevin and Shaun. A beautiful gaudia nautica was found among many other gifts from the sea. The shell of the day was a shell I have not had the pleasure of seeing found in 2 decades of shelling … a cowrie. It was broken but none the less a treasure. You never know what the sea will throw your way.  This  day it showed us all something new and that is the beauty of shelling. Thank you Kevin and Shaun for a wonderful trip.

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.
