10 Simple Florida Shelling Tips

Shelling is a popular activity for Floridian locals and visitors alike! Our pristine beaches on the Gulf of Mexico always have different kinds of mollusk shells that wash up on the shores. As long as your shell is void of a living creature when you find it, you are more than welcome to take it home.
  1. Bring some buckets or pails, which you can for affordable prices online

  2. If you plan on going in the water, consider taking a few nets to catch floating shells

  3. Start early- you will not be the only person trying to find the best shells

  4. Plan your shelling before or after low tide, allowing new shells to wash up

  5. Never rush because a good shelling outcome takes time- just relax

  6. Snoop around where the sand is wet to find colorful newer shells

  7. Visiting after a storm? Go shelling immediately for surprising discoveries

  8. Bring your kids along, which should go with saying

  9. Explore remote areas, looking where others wont

  10. Find accommodations near the beach for convenient shelling trips
