Looking for awesome shelling

My family and I are coming to pcb in a week and I love shelling along the beaches. Last time I was down through I wasnt finding anything significant. I would like to know where to go around panama city beach or near by location for awesome shelling. My kids love sea shells and I want to take them on a nice hunt. Any Suggestions???

You might want to try Shell Island in St. Andrews State Park. You can either buy tickets for the island shuttle in the park or look for boats that provide day cruises that leave from the harbor in Panama City. Just remember that you need to carry everything you need on the island - no food, beverages or bathroom facilities. We have been several times and shelling is hit or miss but its still a fun way to spend a few hours.

There is a small entrance fee for St. Andrews and there is a fee for the shuttle, but I don't think either is out of line.

Its been a few years since we took one of the cruises to the island but it was fun, but crowded.

Hello there,

My family goes to PCB every year and we always go to a place called shell island. It is a nice 30-40 minute ride there and the same back. You will see dolphins coming and going and some pirate ships that are for familys to take a day trip out on, also you will see other types of boats. But at shell island you will find lots of nice shells. You pay....I think about ten or fifteen dollars per person. Maybe less. they feed you a nice lunch and provide drinks and fruity flavored snow-ice in cones to fhelp keep you cool. Hope that helps you out.
