Come and explore your Florida State Park outdoor adventure!
Shell Island is an undeveloped 7-mile-long barrier island and beach that makes up the southern reach of St. Andrews State Park. The island is a local must-see location for visitors who want the pristine beach experience. Hiking inland on the island offers the opportunity to explore rare Florida coastal plants, birds, and wildlife communities in their natural condition. Snorkel around the protected haven of Shell Island to look for colorful tropical fish, dolphins, sea turtles, and other wildlife.
The Shell Island Ferry is the safest, quickest, and easiest way to reach Shell Island. The Ferry is also your connection to snorkel gear rentals and Shell Island Snorkel Tours, kayak rentals, ferry ticket packages, Panama City Beach dolphin tours, and more.
Have fun on the water with a pontoon boat rental. Boat over to Shell Island and cruise the bay waterfront, watch for dolphins, swim, fish, snorkel or hit the beach. Head to the Pier, Jetty, and Camp stores for beach chairs and umbrellas, fishing bait and tackle, snacks and drinks. Add some fun to your Panama City Beach adventure with a kayak or stand-up paddleboard rental to paddle along the gorgeous, calm, shallow waters of the St. Andrews Jetty shoreline in St. Andrews State Park.
