I had an absolute blast with Jackie, Kathy and Cindy. The three sisters were full of great questions and were a pleasure to have on the boat. We left just after daylight and went straight to secret spot number two. The beach was full of solitude and shells. Jackie was in her element. Kathy was all smiles, and Cindy was all of the above. When we first walked on the beach we observed fresh turtle tracks.(as of the 15th there are fifteen turtle nest on the island) Jackie shelled and got into her shelling “zone”. Cindy and Kathy walked as we talked. I enjoyed listening to their stories. Time seemed to fly by. Suddenly it was time to leave. ( I always hate this part, when it is time to leave)
    Thank you Jackie, Cindy and Kathy for your positive input on some of my upcoming endeavors. See you all soon.

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.
