Explore Shell Island on your own! All kayaks are very stable and easy to master. Your adventure begins with a shuttle boat ride to Shell Island where you’ll pick up your kayak. Then you’re off to enjoy the beautiful sites and sounds of Shell Island.
Be on the look-out for dolphins swimming by, as well as other local wildlife. Deer, heron, osprey, rays and much more await to be discovered among the land and waters of Shell Island.
This natural, undeveloped 700-acre barrier island is just a short boat shuttle from St. Andrews State Park. The island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay is actually a part of St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach, Florida. Relax on the sugary white sandy beaches of Shell Island, snorkeling, nature walks and shell collecting are just some of the ways you can enjoy this pristine wildlife sanctuary. Shell Island is home to one of the world’s highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins, and the island’s unmatched beauty and abundant wildlife make an enjoyable and memorable way to spend the day. Rent the snorkel gear and jump on the Shell Island Shuttle or one of our Pontoon Boats and go on your adventure! Do you feel like just relaxing on the beach? We have Snorkel Gear available at our Pier Store and our Jetties Store as well, so grab the gear and run down to the beach and start your adventure!
