A young sheller with her treasure
Captain Mike Fuery, Grey Pelican Charters

Care to step back in time to see what shell collecting was like on Sanibel Island 30 years ago ? Then travel the shallow bay waters with Captain Mike Fuery to remote North Captiva and Cayo Costa Islands to sample shelling today -- The way it used to be.

His charters have been featured in National Geographic, Southern Living, Martha Stewart Living, Gourmet Magazine and a host of national newspapers. He's the shelling columnist for the Sanibel-Captiva Islander Newspaper and you might have caught a glimpse of his shelling tours on television in Germany, Japan or Canada.

Walk the lovely sand beaches of the barrier islands in search of over 180 kinds of sea shells. Snorkel for shells in the shallow gulf waters in the summer. Both islands are either state park land or island preserves, so there are lots of long open stretches of unspoiled beach to search.

Bring your cameras! The 30-minute boat ride from Captiva Island takes you past dolphin, eagles, osprey, otters or even a manatee.

Private and split charters can be arranged. Private charters for up to four passengers is $250.00 for the three-hour trip. If you would like to join another couple, the charge is $50 per person with a maximum of four shellers for three hours.

Capt. Mike Fuery is making Custom-Carved Beach Walking Sticks. They also make fine 'Stingray' Ticklers for waders along shore!
