Shell Island Ferry

About the Ferry

  • We pick up and drop off approximately 2.2 miles down the island at the State Park docks.
  • We do not drop off behind the Jetty area.
  • It is a nature-preserved part of the island so there are no restrooms, shade, or food available on the island.
  • Snorkeling and scuba equipment are available for rent at the Pier Store for Shell Island and the Jetty location.
  • It will take about 15 minutes to reach our dock at the island.
  • Snacks and beverages are available for purchase prior to departure at the Pier and Camp Stores.
