Shelling Family

Shelling Family

This family was a blast! The whole family loved and knew all of their shells. The weather was perfect. It’s always fun to see the big smiles on the kid’s faces after collecting shells. Dylan had a great time snorkeling and finding olive shells. He was out of the boat before I even had the anchor set.  Kloë found a great alphabet cone, many beautiful fighting conchs and sand dollars.   Kamden Shell (how can you go wrong with a middle name like Shell?), she was cute as a button and enjoyed finding sand dollars and just swimming around in the water.  This was a great day with a great family and I look forward to the next 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.
