Taking a trip to Shell Island...this is the way to do it. Easygoing boat ride to the island at low tide and came back as the tide rolled in. Great fun for everyone. Will do it again!

Cool short boat ride, and great little visit to the island. Tons of shells, of all different types. Kids loved just sloshing around and looking for things. No sharks teeth for us, but still some great finds!
