3 Hour Shelling Cruise

Reservations are imperative for this cruise at least 24 hours in advance, this way we can ensure we have the ability to make it happen.  Trips may be canceled due to inclement weather.

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.
