3 Hour Shelling Cruise
Three Hour Shell Island Excursion
Fare $29.90 + Tax
Children: $14.95 (11 & under)
We also offer a 3 hour beach shelling cruise (29$ adults and half price for kids 11&under) from Hubbard’s marina. This leaves at 9am Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This tour takes an hour to get to the island, an hour on the island and about 45 min on the way back. On the way there we take you down the protected intercostal, and on the way back we run down the beach to take in the sights! The shelling on this island and on Egmont key is incredible. Includes all the free shells you can carry! A short ferry ride from Ft. DeSoto is the Shell Key Preserve, a natural and uninhabited barrier island. Landing on the south end of the island is a unique trip for this area. White sand, warm waters are just the fix for sunbathing, swimming, superb shelling, bird and dolphin watching or just loafing around. Over night camping is allowed with a no cost permit. Shell Key is comparable to Sanibel and Captiva.
