Enjoy 3 hours on the best beach to find amazing shells

Our 3hr Shell Key Shelling Trip is offered from Hubbard’s Marina inside Johns Pass and offers around one hour on the island exploring and shelling with around an hour ride down the back protected bay waters on a relaxing, safe, and fun trip onboard the HUB Cat 49.

On the ride back to Johns Pass, we will cruise up our beautiful gulf beaches when weather allows, if it’s a little bumpy the ride back will also be in the back protected bay waters.

We will often spot dolphins, seabirds, manatees and other wildlife on the ride out and back!

What To Bring:

The boat is entirely covered and it will have a galley on board selling cold beer, snacks, soda, and water so cash is helpful! Also, the boat does have a bathroom located on board as well.

We strongly encourage you to bring a camera to capture your memories and all the beautiful sights and wildlife you will encounter. Also, don’t forget to share your photos with us on Instagram or Facebook.

Dress for a day at the beach with sun protection and appropriate footwear! You could bring a small cooler if you’d like but remember the boat does have a cash galley area with snacks, soda, and water available!
