We are an old school fish camp with everything you need to enjoy the beautiful local waters: rental boats, charters, cabins, motel, camp sites, boat storage, boat repair, bait and tackle.
This is the center of activity for boating and staying with us. It’s here that you check into your room or cabin and make reservations to rent boats or boat and guide, buy licenses, pick out tackle and bait and don’t forget your snacks and refreshments. The store is also the spot to relax on the bench out front with a cold drink and share stories and visit with other guests. Our store opens at 6:30am with free coffee for our guests. Early mornings can be quite busy with fisherman meeting their guides and boarding their boats, and getting bait and tackle.
At Shell Island we have a fleet of classic center console shallow draft boats available for rent. These boats feature 90 HP motors or greater and are equipped with all the necessary safety gear. Rental boats are limited to fishing the flats in the vicinity of the St. Marks Lighthouse. These boats are in the water at our fish camp, leave from our dock and returned the same day. One of the nicest features of renting a boat is it is already in the water ready to go when you arrive and after a long day of fishing or sightseeing you return to the dock and step off – no cleanup.
Shell Island has some of the very best Captains in the region working with us. Our fleet of classic boats are equipped to keep you safe, and provide you a great platform to partake in the local fishery that is world-class.
