Shell Island is about 12 miles long and completely undeveloped. Most of the land is administered as a part of nearby St. Andrews State Park and the only way to get there is by boat. When you arrive you will encounter a pristine wilderness paradise located a mere stones throw from a bustling commerical harbor and nearby miltary bases. For $16 you get a three and half hour tour (lunch included) with a one hour stay on the island to collect shells and frolic in the crystal clear waters of its Gulf beach front. This being Florida the boat has a snack concession and a full service bar. What more could y'all want? After Memorial Day there are three trips a day so you can arrange to stay longer on the island if you so desire. So what are you waiting for? Get thee to Shell Island!
