Shell Island Tours


Get some “Island Time”.

Shell Island is a magnificent barrier island just off the coast of Panama City Beach. Reminiscent of the Florida of old, it has been lost to time and spared the destructive effects of development. Blinding white sand dunes and weathered palm trees greet you as you step onto shore. Totally uninhabited by humans and only accessible by boat, Shell Island is the crowned jewel of the Emerald Coast.

Take a leisurely walk on the water’s edge while adding to your collection of sea shells. Hunt for star fish and sand dollars with a mask and snorkel. Perhaps simply relax in a beach chair with a drink and your toes in the sand. The decision is yours with Last Local Guide Service.

Join Capt. Vann for a private tour of the island. We will safely transport your group to the island over the protected waters of St. Andrews Bay. Once there the captain will escort your group down the trails that lead to the incredible gulf side beaches. Snorkel gear is made available, just in case you feel like taking a swim. The captain and the boat will remain accessible should any needs arise during your stay.

Call Capt. Vann at (850)774-0909. He will be glad to share his latest outings and answer any questions you may have about booking your very own private Shell Island tour.

“Experience Florida, the way it used to be. No trip to Panama City Beach is complete until you visit Shell Island.” Capt. John Vann
