Project Description


While it’s not a sport, no vacation to ‘Tween Waters and Captiva Island is complete without a walk on our beach and a chance for you to partake of the “Captiva Crouch.” Be sure to pack your sunblock and grab your collection bag, because odds are you’ll hit the shell lover’s jackpot. Just note: live shells should legally remain on the beach.

Guided Shelling Excursions

If you love shells (and who visiting Captiva doesn’t), you’ll want to consider exploring more than one beach for your favorite finds. That’s when you’ll want to make way to our Marina where our expert charter captains can set sail for unspoiled beaches and unsurpassed shelling.

For information and reservations, visit our Marina or contact:
