After the tour, you will be directed to one of the best shelling beaches in all of North Carolina where you can spend some time on your own shelling your way down the beach, with the Cape Lookout Lighthouse off in the distance.  Shackleford is well known as one of the best shelling destinations on the East Coast.  Among other things, you can find Conchs, Whelks, Queenís Helmets, Scotch Bonnets, Olive Shells, Sand Dollars, and more.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  NOTICE  | Please Read  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Wild Horse & Shelling Safari is a guided tour that takes place on a wild, yet beautiful, Island.  There are no sidewalks or boardwalks on the Island, and the tour is of a strenuous nature.  You will walk up to 2 miles over soft, deep sand, up and over sand dunes and through potentially muddy salt marshes.  Additionally, be aware that the tour will take the group hiking into the interior of an uninhabited, undeveloped Island where access to medical attention is difficult and timely to arrange.

If you have any trouble walking, or have any pre-existing conditions that affect your health in a way that would make it difficult for you to handle the terrain and physical demands described above, or if it would be dangerous for you to be far away from the possibility of emergency medical attention, then this tour is not recommended for you.

Please be sure that all the members of your group are aware of the warning above, and the members of your group are not placed in danger by overestimating or overstating the abilities of the members of your group.

A great way to end the day!  Enjoy nature's fireworks as the sun sets

You'll return to the dock with a rejuvenated frame of mind and a renewed respect for the therapeutic benefits of a peaceful boat trip through an exquisite natural & historic wonderland.

You'll really enjoy being closer to the water, experiencing the glide, and really tuning in to the environment around you.
