Shellers were finding BANDED TULIPS, LIGHTNING WHELKS, PEAR WHELKS, NUTMEGS, FIGHTING CONCHS and the shiniest most colorful LETTERED OLIVES I have seen in a while.
And then there’s this… James from Kentucky found a big beautiful HORSE CONCH completely intact. Shellzam! What a find!
Not only were there shells, we saw plenty of wildlife and beautiful scenery on our secluded island.
Our boat was filled with shellers from all over the world who got to know one another and share experiences AND share the shells they were finding.
It was so much fun to meet beach explorers like Dominic finding treasures with his family from Ohio.
And to see hawk eye shellers Rachelle and Justin again (they were on our May cruise too!) not only finding amazing shells but I think they gave away more than half of the shells they found. Shellers are awesome!
Shelling Sister Susan and Jerry from Panama City were thrilled to find beautifully patterned double SUNRAY VENUS shells half buried in the sand.
Kathy from Tulsa was on our cruise too! She still has her lucky Margarita bucket but since this one is on its last leg, I guess more margaritas are on order- whoohoo! I’m positive the next bucket will be lucky too.
Its so much fun to hang out with other happy shellers and especially to see the excitement when there are lots of treasures piling up in all sorts of shell bags and buckets.
And of course…. everybody on the cruise got an unbelievable $25 gift certificate to Sealife By Congress!!! Sealife By Congress thinks shellers are awesome too!
Join us on one of our next Captiva Cruises to Cayo Costa on one of these dates…
