WHAT TO BRING
WATER! AND MORE WATER!
LONG-SLEEVE WATER SHIRT
GOOD HIKING SHOES WHICH CAN GET WET
DRY BAG FOR PHONE/KEYS
PLASTIC BOX FOR FRAGILE FINDS (OPTIONAL)
CHAIR/UMBRELLA FOR REST/SHADE (OPTIONAL)
Be sure to wear close-toed water shoes or old sneakers or rubber boots! The terrain may be rough and rugged. Even if you're headed to the sand flats there are still several sharp shells and objects you don't want to step on barefooted! Kice is not your typical white sandy beachfront; it's teeming with tree roots and stumps, and sometimes slimy slippery muck! Sometimes shelling requires you to cover a lot of ground on foot, both in and out of water - make sure your shoes are broken-in and fit well to avoid rubbing and blisters! Footwear is so so important!
There's no shade from the blazing sun on the island or sand flats! Be sure to bring sun protection: long-sleeve water shirt, lotion, cream, sunglasses, hats, even an umbrella to create your own shade if needed - whatever you use!
Of course, feel free to bring your own desired food and beverages.
No tools are really necessary, but you're free to bring your preferred shelling tools such as rakes, scoopers, diggers, snorkels, goggles, walking sticks, etc! (Awesome hand rakes and Sand Dippers are available for purchase right at the Goodland Boat Park Ship Store we the tour launches from!)
If you love fragile beach finds (sand dollars, urchins, crab carapaces) you'll want to keep them separate from the shells which can easily break them. Bring a plastic box to keep the fragile stuff safe!
Good idea to bring insect repellent if those pesky no-seeums love you. No-seeums can be problematic during very early morning or near-sunset evening times of day, and seem to be especially prevalent whenever there are shell piles.
