Shelling on an Island - Collect Shells from Anclote Island Beach in Tampa Bay Area

Go shelling in Tampa Bay

Yes, it's Florida and one of the Florida things to do is go shelling on a beach. You don't have to be a collector, just pick up some shells to take home with you. There is no limit on dead shells. Live shells you are limited to one per person per day. Shelling is fun and relaxing on a beautiful beach.

The city beaches in Clearwater and St. Pete are not the best places to go shelling because they have been picked out. Even Caladesi Island does not have that many shells compared to Anclote Island.

The North Sand Bar at Anclote is the best place to go shelling in Tampa Bay. The reason for this is that the only way to get to Anclote Sand Bar is by boat. And that is where we come in. You have several options.

How Much Does Hiring a Captain Cost?

Captained Boat Special

Worried about getting lost, or not finding the really cool places to go? Worried you might damage the rental boat by running aground or crashing into something? Hire an experienced and licensed local captain to join you on board to run the boat for you. He/she can show you the cool snorkel places and guide you exactly on where to go and how to be safe out on the water.
All of these captains are US Coast Guard licensed. Captains are private contractors and you need to pay them directly, in cash. If you have contracted a boat for a certain period of time (such as 4 hours) but decide to return early, YOU STILL PAY THE CAPTAIN THE FULL AMOUNT FOR THE CONTRACTED PERIOD.

IF YOU HIRE A CAPTAIN YOU ARE ABSOLVED OF YOUR LIABILITY ON DRIVER DAMAGE TO THE BOAT! (this excludes any damage your party might cause). No need to worry about crashing into other boats or damaging the propeller. Your captain is responsible for this.
