Sanibel Island is world renowned for its shells. People from all over the world come to collect and admire the colorful “Treasures of the Sea”.
When is the best time to go shelling?
An hour before and after low tide is a great way to start your shelling.
A full moon and a new moon have the most extreme tides so this is a really good time to go shelling.
One of my favorite is Lighthouse beach on the east end of Sanibel Island.
Also Blind Pass on Captiva. Another location if Cayo Costa Beach off
Pine Island. You can only get there by boat. So plan a trip, you’ll love
Venice beach, if you are hunting for shark’s teeth..check out Venice Beach
Is just south of Sarasota. If you have any kids that are big shark fans this is the place to go.
The hardest to find shells and those in the best condition are considered the most valuable to collectors who often look for live shells, since they are in the best condition. A live shell is one that still has the living animal inside
Be it clam or conch. Many beaches do not allow the taking of live shells, so be sure to ask.
How to clean your shells; soak in a 50/50 percent solution of water and bleach. Let them sit over-night in this solution and then let them dry in the sunshine. If you want to make the shells shine use a little bit of baby oil.
It’s a lot of fun to go shelling along the surf and beaches so Have Fun!
