Teresa and Jean from Texas

Teresa and Jean from Texas

Two long time Texas shellers traveled with me to one of my favorite places. The water was calm and the time seemed to fly. We found many fighting conchs, angel wings, ( which is unusual for August) Sun Ray Venus, Olives and a beautiful Worm shell. We also saw a manatee on our return trip. Teresa said,” That was the icing on the cake” It was a great day on the water with long time Texas shellers. God Bless Texas!

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.
