My wife and I have been vacationing in the area for the past several years, and we always make it a point to take Captain Rod's Lighthouse Shell Island Tour each time we come down. The tour is different each time we take it, because the shells are always different, as well as the narrative we get from the captain as we cruise to and from the barrier island. A particular advantage to taking the cruise on this vessel, versus the other cruise company that also goes to Shell Island, is the fact Captain Rod's boat is equipped with a bathroom; a huge plus for us older folk!! In addition, this boat has a cover, so all occupants are in the shade, instead of being out and baking in the sun. Be advised -- bring along your bug spray, as there are times the flies are out and biting on the island. We've been there when the flies haven't been a problem, and we've also been there when they've been around and biting, but the spray keeps them at bay. This is a fun adventure to participate in and we always look forward to going each year!!
